After spending many years performing other people's music I was encouraged by a good friend of mine to begin writing my own material. As the son of ten quid immigrants from Scotland to Australia in the late 60's I was surrounded by music from an early age. My song writing has been fairly heavily country folk focused but I just love a good song and the interplay of melody harmony and good lyrics. That's what I aim for in my own music. I am happy to share and just enjoy the variety of talented musicians and richness of conversation in this online community.
