About
I am, first and foremost, an experienced drummer who loves to sing. To this end I have leaned to play other instruments to a level that allows me to compose songs and perform them. I have worked, in the past, with Sting, Eddie Reader, Stiff Little Fingers in my capacity as a drummer. I am now at the point where I am able to work on my own and get songs produced to the level of a good demo. I need to find people to collaborate with in order to go further. I need some good musicians and someone who can produce to a higher level than I can. If they are writers as well, then that is all to the good because we can all get involved.

Songwriting Achievements:
Thus far, I have not had a lot of success as a writer. I have had some things selected on MusicXray and had some good critiques here and there. Any budding writer knows that it's a bit of minefield out there and tough to get your songs accepted when you're on the outside. As a band member in the past my name has appeared on the odd credit but I see the past as a learning experience and prefer to look to the future. That's why I'm here.
