Born and bred in the South Wales Valleys, I have been involved with music in one form or another from the late 70’s until the present day.
Playing in numerous bands over the years as a guitarist/vocalist, covering many genres of music, but never seemed to be able to find the time to do anything with my original material, which by now had been piling up. Fast forward to hell of 2020 which has put a stop to most of my musical activities, but allowed me to concentrate on what I hope may be some sort of solo musical career. With this in mind I decided to take a bunch of songs that were recorded over the past 18 months and put them on general release.
My debut solo album “Ghosts of my Past” is totally self-funded and was recorded at Towpath Studios in Sebastopol, South Wales. It was engineered, mixed and mastered by Mike Hopkins, who also helped out with keys and backing vocals, and with the help of my good friend and Bass Guitarist Wayne Morgan. All songs are self-penned, most of them were written a long time ago, but have been re-visited and updated for the present times. They were all inspired by my musical heroes The Beatles, Peter Frampton and Jimi Hendrix, to name but a few, hopefully I’ve done them justice.
The idea was to promote "Ghosts Of My Past" with a series of live dates in the U.K., obviously that's not going to happen any time soon! So I have started work on the difficult 2nd album, and may also look to release an EP in 2021 with a few songs that for one reason or another didn't make the 1st album.
