About
Been writing songs for 30 years. Performed them regularly at one stage in my life, but very relatively rarely now. Lyrics are definitely my stronger suit. Most recently been performing with my electric band, "The Native Apes". During lockdown I've been playing and writing more acoustic stuff again. Open to collaborating with other musicians and writers, particulary someone who's strengths are in music composition and arrangement. I would be very open to providing original lyrics for existing compositions, or an interesting long-term project, like co-writing a musical.
