Here are the details of some of the bands I am. One of my most enjoyable things is playing and I am very happy to perform with these wonderful talented people in front of the masses. If you want to book any of the bands for shows please get in contact.
I am very happy to be involved in Keepers Brew, the psychedelic prog dance brain child of Greyum May (ex-Ozric Tentacles). Imagine the mutant child of Primus, Gong and The Orb and you'll be only half way there to understanding what Greyum's music is like. The last album, “Constellation Automation” was released in 2017 with the new album out 2019

Paramore (Or Less)
By far my busiest band at the moment, I have been in PoL since its inception in 2013 and have gigged through the UK with them playing the O2 Stadium in London, Tribfest in Yorkshire amongst others. In 2017 we have done a massive spring tour of O2 academies with Green Haze and Offspin in London, Liverpool, Sheffield, Glasgow, Newcastle and Birmingham along with dates in Cardiff, Southampton and the main stage at Tribfest, the UK's biggest tribute band festival.
From a playing point of view the Paramore guitar parts are great fun to play and much more intricate than you expect and sound wise theres some great tones in there, especially the ubiquitous heavy whammy up an octave lead tone.
I'm looking forward to seeing some of you on tour and at our shows next year!
