Hello and welcome to the site.

Solo Indie Rock/Pop Artist living in Winchester, England and originally from Glasgow in Scotland.

Music generally based on guitar based routes but generally has upbeat feel, no matter the content, with good chorus on 3/4 minute pop format.  

Been in bands in the past but spent last 5 years working on home and studio recordings. In late 2011 made real effort to bring together new songs and market via digital outlet. Recorded two songs - Girl in the Cab and Summertime. Added to that produced a Video for Girl in the Cab to help promote.
Spend time ensuring that songs are tight and well structured and of best quality possible.

Combine recording via Korg Digital Recording Studio and Garage band which actually produces good effects for vocals.

Influences include Bauhaus for original Goth/Arthouse Rock, Doves - experimental Indie Pop, Bluetones - melodic, David Bowie, Rolling Stones, T-Rex and most recently Two Door Cinema Club with their lead guitar which is more poppy but catchy.

Having recently worked in Corporate environment and my ambition now is to spend more time on music. Today success is from following, syncing music for TV/Film and maybe record or publishing deal, Also looking at starting a band and/or keen to work with other people.

Feedback on voice has been positive from fellow artists with it having a range of styles and pitch.

This resulted in Collaboration with TeleFunken (https://soundcloud.com/7gramm) where over the Net we put together Sandman and just recently completed a new song called ‘I ride in the Wind” - adding vocals and added production overview by filling out the song with additional guitars and effects.

Songs have been mainly guitar based but looking at a few projects that will integrate some more melodic tunes to heighten the vocal mixes. New song “Star” in nearing completion which is a positive song and has a change in lead guitar more in line with Two Door Cinema Club. 

We are happy to provide music for other artists, film producers etc. and instrumental versions will be attached soon. Also will write songs for bands / artists films / advertising. Let us know what your topic is and we can get started.

Your input and feedback will be most welcome - enjoy

Girl in the Cab
Girl in the Cab - Good old fashioned Power Pop tempo - rhythm guitar is akin to Undertones style and chorus line came up very quickly when writing the lyrics. Also tipped tow in the water and produced a video.
