About
I am a rock multi-instrumentalist and producer with retro tendencies, particularly for 1960s through early 80s sounds (british invasion, power pop, sunshine pop, new wave, prog rock, kraut rock, sci-fi soundtracks, psychedelia, even vintage disco). Music flows very naturally from me - melodies, harmonies... but I struggle at times with lyric writing - hence my seeking a lyricist and perhaps even singer...(I do sing if I have to, but singing is not my forte). Music is a serious hobby for me.
