I became interested in guitar at age 14, my parents bought my first acoustic and after two lessons I decided to go it alone and teach myself.
At 17 I formed a non-professional progressive blues band - "Anubis" playing a mixture of self-penned material and blues covers, then followed periods with MoBirch and "Little Acre"and "Four on the Floor".
Currently I'm working as a solo acoustic player, and occasionally with the band 'Ka'enobi'.
During live performances I use guitars and mandolins, but record with many different instruments including banjo, kora and percussion. The music I record and perform is all original material written by myself and my wife Anita.
Many of the songs refer to world issues such as nuclear waste and testing, the problems created by the legacy of empire building (notably the Sudan and in Australia the plight of the Aborigines), war and conflict and problems facing the third world.
There is also room for songs of love's lost and gained, plus a little frivolity/humour and a number of instrumentals.
