For business enquiries, session quotes, booking details, questions, answers, and fan-mail (well, I can dream!), please get in touch with me via this page.
I will get back to you as soon as I can, depending on my workload. Don’t be afraid to chase up if it takes longer but I’m normally quite good at remembering!
If you'd like to send an attachment (e.g. your demo, a reference track, photos from a show etc) let me know first and I'll provide an email for you to send it to - or if you'd like to call I can provide a phone number on request.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Can I book you for a solo show?
A: I'd love to! If I'm available, logistics are viable, and the occasion is suited to my kind of thing. Please get in touch and we'll see if we can work something out!
Q: What are your gigging rates for a solo show?
A: This can vary depending on set times, location, equipment, format, and the nature of the event itself - I'm open to discussion on a case-to-case basis.
Q: Can I book one of your bands for a show?
A: Best way to do it is get in touch with them via their respective websites, socials, agents and whatnot.
Q: What are your online session rates?
A: It'll depend on the complexity and time consumption of what you're after. For instance a brief keyboard/guitar loop would be much cheaper than a full blown multi-instrumental production! But overall, my packages offer exceptional value for money for the services, quality, and creative control you'll get.
Q: Do you produce tracks, and if so would this be remotely or in person?
A: Production is a time-consuming operation so it'll depend how much I have on my plate. But if you have the patience of a saint, sure thing! Please have a listen to tracks tagged 'production' on my Online Sessions page, to see if we're sonically compatible before taking the plunge.
You will need your own basic recording setup to record your vocals and/or instruments to a click track, then I'll be happy to build instrumentation around it to reach your desired sound. This will normally be remotely, but if you have access to a studio (plus engineer) I could come to you.
Q: What genres do you work with?
A: I'm open to most! Rock, blues, funk, ska, mod, new wave, synth-pop, Britpop, rock'n'roll, punk, big-band, psychedelic, and R&B (both old and new definitions) are my "specialities". But not so much screamo, drill and the overwhelming side of jazz. Those aside, I'm open & flexible!
Q: Are you able to offer session work in person (i.e. in a recording studio or at a show)?
A: Possibly! I'll see if I'm available and can arrange logistics, and we'll go from there.
Q: What DAW and software do you use?
A: Logic X for certain technical stuff and for compatibility with clients, and occasionally Cubase for my ancient but beloved Windows plugins. For keys I use a mixture of state-of-the-art VSTs I've accumulated over the last 10+ years (mainly Spectrasonics, Kontakt and Arturia), but for Moogs, guitar amps and Leslies I use the real thing when possible.
Q: Do you offer lessons?
A: Maybe someday, once I have the space, facilities, and resources to accommodate for one-to-one lessons. While that's still a while off, watch this space!
Q: Can you join my band?
A: Can we be friends first? Being in a band is like being in a relationship - it's always best to know you're compatible as people and creatives before the plunge happens organically. Plus generally speaking, I'm very busy and creatively satisfied, and to join another band on a whim may be biting off more than I can chew.
But if I already know you personally or artistically, and it aligns with my personal creative urges and goals (pub covers or "indie" bands are an automatic no, sorry!) and my carefully balanced schedule, then I'll have a ponder.
Either way I'm happy to help you with recording and maybe the odd show via my session packages.
I'm more than happy to discuss or clarify any of the above if need be! Please feel free to get in touch via the form above and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
