Hi! I’ve returned to the music and audio industry after some time away. I’m seeing it all with fresh eyes and hearing it all with fresh ears!

Join me on my journey through the incredible world of music and sound,

I’m writing and recording music, and studying at the superb School of Audio Production at the University of Salford. You’ll read all about it here.

Some of the instruments and studio equipment I use have interesting stories, I’ll share them with you.

I love music of all kinds old and new, and you’ll see my appreciation and reviews on this site too.

I will also curate musical and audio posts and sources that you may find interesting.

I’ll be delighted if you’ll accompany me on my adventures in music and audio. Please remember to contact me if you wish, links are at the bottom of the page.
