I was born in Vancouver, grew up in the West of Scotland and live and have procreated in Wales. I am a citizen of the World. I'm here to learn how to write lyrics, so the singing and guitar playing are incidental. If you want to use the lyrics to do your own thing, then feel free; I'd be very interested to hear it.
I am a Peter Green obsessive above all, but the odd Nobel Laureate, Johnny Cash, Howe Gelb, Half Man Half Biscuit, King Creosote, PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, 80's Congolese, Zimbabwean & Malian stuff, Klezmer music, 70's & 80's Balkan music, The Dubliners, Mozart, late period Mad, Deaf, Beethoven particularly, plinky plinky Norwegian guys with beatle hairdo's and synthesizers, Krautrock, Edinburgh pub folk sessions, Dick Gaughan, anybody with a musical instrument and a heart. I love 'em all.

I use a pair of Thomann condenser mics, Steinberg UR22 interface, Mixcraft Pro studio 6, a 1980 Ibanez Artist AR300 which, if I'm honest, is not far behind my children in terms of my level of affection for it; a beautiful Czech built Stanford OM5V acoustic from about 2006ish and a 1989 Manuel Rodrigues FF flamenco which is probably the most expensive guitar I own, but I picked it up for tuppence on ebay. That is my one piece of valuable advice to you all: that the bottom appears to have fallen out of the quality second-hand classical guitar market, so fill your boots.
