About me
I am a musician, singer, instrumentalist etc. I have been heavily involved in music since an early age and am classically trained on the piano, violin, viola and Organ. More recently I have started playing the guitar and bass guitar, inspired by artists such as John Martyn, Jeff Buckley, Nick Drake and Jaco Pastorius.
