I'm a musician and occassional writer. However, most of my creative energy goes into helping small, urban humans to compose new music and song. I love doing this, but it takes a pretty heavy toll on my own output. After 18 months away from writing and recording, I decided to work a bit less for others and a bit more for myself and used a lull in the chaos to start this page. You can find out more about my musical work with young people here.
Your pledge is the best motivation that I can have for creating; not because of your money but because of your ears. I live a scenic but secluded life in the middle of the English countryside and have learned that I'm most productive when I'm composing for others, not for myself.
Your support means that I can have an audience for my musical creations and thus find some purpose for re-kindling cold fires and stoking old musical flames. In a practical sense, your pledge means that I can physically improve my recording space as well as pay for more professional mastering and equipment. Ultimately, without the motivation of your feedback here on Patreon, I would struggle to find a reason to finish things.
What I do
I write, sing and play everything that you hear, recording it in my small basement studio in the middle of the Shropshire Hills, UK. I mix and master things myself, so any sonic anomalies are my responsibility alone. I'm working on it.
