My Music

Me in the 80sBackground

I've been playing, writing and mixing music for over 30 years. My first professional stint with music was with Equalizer Studios in Whanganui as an audio engineer. After that I moved to Palmerston North to study music. Whilst at music school I played bass in Jazz, Country, Rock and Reggae bands. After that I went to University. I thought I'd study Media and Communications so I could learn how to promote my music and learn English Literature so I could write better lyrics. To my surprise neither discipline were designed for those goals but I learnt lots of other things that got me passionate about learning.

Whilst at University I played a number of gigs around New Zealand and also recorded music with friends. These days I don't play as much but I do enjoy a jam with friends or a night out doing Karaoke.

My music style can vary a lot but I'm an 80s child so lots of my influences come from there. Here's a list of some of my favourite musos:

  • David Bowie
  • Psychedelic Furs
  • Thomas Dolby
  • The Cure
  • The Police
  • Billy Idol
  • Radiohead
  • Muse

Original Music

These are my favourite 3 original songs:

"Organ and Synth Idea" is the latest song that I'm working on. Was the first thing I recorded when I started to learn Pro Tools.

"Rail for your rockets" is about 7 years old. Wrote it with a band I was in that went to Wellington for Battle of the Bands.

"Kick that Habit" was written in Palmerston North back in 1993 when I started University.
