"After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is Music." -- Aldous Huxley
I started playing guitar at 16 and by 17 was playing folk clubs, solo and as part of a duo. I moved to London when I was offered a publlishing contract with Chappels and kind of oozed into rock music. Later, in the 1990s I formed and played with the all girl rock band The Sirens. In 1996 I move to the other side of the glass, purchasing Sync City Studios (now Bally Studios) in London. Here I engineered and produced for many up and coming bands including Coldplay (Safety EP, Blue Room EP and the B side of Yellow) and Keane. Following the sale of the studios ten years later I have now returned to performing and writing, these days in the world of acoustic fingerstyle guitar instrumentals and with the band Captain Wyckes And The Tarantellas
