Welcome to Planet Q - Producers Wanted.

Wow where did that time go?

I started my solo music "career" in 2009 with the release of my début album Focal Point, followed in November 2011 by my second album P'dice. Then the music stopped being released. Why? Writer's block, confidence, time, family commitments, work? A bit of everything I suppose. 

Over the years I have been building up a library of new songs and I am ready to work on releasing new music.

I write, produce and play all the instruments myself but I can't drum. Luckily I have been privileged to work with some of the worlds' best drummers: Gavin Harrison, Marco Minnemann, Andy Edwards and Alex Cromarty.

I have been supported by many fans, amazing individuals who gave their words of encouragement, pre-ordered my CDs and spread word of my existence across the world.

Since 2011 the web has changed. Streaming content online is now the norm, so advanced CD sales are a thing of the past. Additionally I'm not organised enough to keep fresh content on all the social media and music streaming platforms. Online promotion can take up way too much time and money. 

So it's May 2020 and during the C19 lockdown I've been organising of my studio and my thoughts.

To keep things simple I will:

  • I will post all content only on Patreon.
  • I will post videos on Youtube and share on Patreon.
  • I will ensure all Patron donations go to producing and publishing new songs.
I already have a full time job, a studio and I still write and record music. However to bring my working demos up to a standard worth publishing means hiring session drummers, mastering and a few other associated costs.

This is where my lovely Patrons (aka My Producers) come in. Help fund my music production and get involved with how and when it is distributed.

Mach 1 is available. Mach 2 will be launched of we need more speed.

Please join me on this journey.

When I reach 500 patrons I'll start to hire session drummers to join me on my songs. If you know my music you will know I do love a good drummer. As much as I enjoy adding my own drum tracks during the writing phase there are occasions when you need to stand back and let the experts do their magic.

To date I have had the great fortune to have work with the following:

Focal Point
  • Alex Cromarty (Gabriel / Mostly Autumn).
  • Andy Edwards (Kino / Frost).

  • Marco Minnemann (Steven Wilson / Joe Santriani).
  • Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree / King Crimson / The Pineapple Thief).
