Guitarist -

Peacemaker, DIE!

2014 - 2015

In early 2014 I joined South Wales rock band Blackbyrd. Shortly after my addition to the lineup we re-branded the group as Peacemaker, DIE! Alongside myself, the other members have also experienced much success in previous bands Funeral For A Friend and Dead Against The Rest. Since its incarnation, we have recorded a 5 track EP titled “Chapter 1” and signed to UK label Red Dragon Records. The EP was released via this label in October 2014. The EP was recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by myself and I also play guitar on all tracks (Lead and Rhythm), it also features guest vocals on the track “Walk Towards The Sun” from Nev MacDonald (Of Skin/Kooga fame). The EP was re-released in 2015 independently with the backing of Central Press and Chic PR via all the digital channels. During my tenure with the group we supported artists such as The Quireboys and Skinny Molly (Ex. Lynyrd Skynyrd members) as well as playing multiple headline acts to sellout crowds around South Wales. In March 2015 I announced my departure from the group due to musical differences. I wanted to explore a variety of new genres and immerse myself in the blues while the remaining members of the band wanted to push into a heavier direction.

Producer/Mix-Engineer/Re-mixer/Song-writer -

Self-Employed

2011 - 2016

Since 2011 I have been working as a freelance producer/mix engineer/remixer out of my own studio working on a variety of projects and remixes. I have collaborated with artists overseas via the internet and I have worked on a variety of local projects from my own studio and local studios. I am available for mixing work, production work, remixing work and mastering and I have no boundaries on genre. I pride myself on working directly with the artists to establish their exact needs and requirements before putting those requirements into the final product. Most recently I mixed a record by my last band, Peacemaker, DIE! which was globally released via Red Dragon Records and distributed digitally and physically. The band was made up of ex members of Funeral for a Friend, New Device, Forever Vendetta and Blackbyrd. The EP also featured guest appearances from Skin's Neville MacDonald. The EP was recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by me.

Musician (session) -

New Device (Band)

2011 - 2011

During the first half of 2011, I spent 5 months as a live session guitarist with London based rock band New Device. I joined the band 2 weeks prior to their UK Headline Tour due to commitment issues with the previous guitarists. I was tasked with learning the tracks from their debut album and then performing this live with the band. The album was written/recorded for two guitarists and the band had previously lost both guitar players within a short space of time. I spent time re-arranging some of the parts to make them suitable for a solo guitarist to play live without compromising the integrity of the song structures. We completed 5 months’ worth of shows all over the UK as a headline act in some of the country’s best venues. In May 2011 I decided to step down from my role in New Device to commit to my production work.

Guitarist -

Forever Vendetta (Band)

2008 - 2011

From 2008 until January 2011 I was the lead guitarist and founding member of Swansea based rock band Forever Vendetta. During my time with the band we successfully completed a run of UK headline shows, played a variety of festivals and support slots with established acts and released two self-funded, self-released EP’s. Our first EP was released as a free download from Myspace and obtained over 10,000 downloads from the download link we created for the purpose. Both our EP’s received extensive airplay from a number of established and independent radio stations worldwide. I also acted as the bands manager/booking agent and I was responsible for booking shows and covering the logistics of the bands time on the road. In 2009 we were selected from a Myspace poll headed by Ozzy Osbourne and publicist Gill Miles. Together, Ozzy and Gill selected their top 10 favourite UK unsigned bands. We were put in the top 10 alongside other bands such as The Defiled, Black Spiders and GU Medicine. I left Forever Vendetta in January 2011 to pursue my session work with London based band New Device and to begin my production career.
