I have a music degree, have been a guitar teacher and performed and written for a number of bands. I would love my compositions to be used in film scores or background music for television dramas. A number of years ago I part composed a piece of music that was used on a shopping channel. Though I write and play original guitar-based rock songs I also play and write music for acoustic guitar. I was inspired to do this after attending a concert by the late Eric Roche. I have played at a benefit concert for him and also supported Gordon Gilltrap when he appeared locally a few years ago.
