one thing leading to another(2011)
One ex-dream to the next(2012)
A collection of diverse and curious variety - momentary improvisations on resonator and mando-guitars; live looping constructs, and compositions montaged from fragments of melody which gradually coalesced whilst watching TV. In some ways, it's all blues...
Ambient jazz blues guitar and effects loop-based miasma, I expect. Or not...
10 Tracks in 35 Minutes - brief fully met. A sampling, a Smörgåsbord, yes: a tappas tree, whose branches are laden with a variety of helpings - weaving-together acoustic and electric folk, minimalism, jazz, ambient - all the world can provide, or the bits of it I do, at least...lovingly hand-stitched in south Wales
Centred around "From start to stop", a 23 minute minimalist voyage from there to there, and pieces with similar or dissimilar moods on either side for contrast and companionship
From these echoes, names arose(2016)
guitar and digital sound processing, with some ebow and jellyfish for good measure and just a touch of capo. And a massive bonus track - Summon the ebow
Evenings And Weekends(2017)
A mix of improvised pieces on a baritone ukulele; and minimalist pieces composed and restructured from improvised live-looping sessions.
