When I think of who has inspired my 'sound' musically, the first person I think of is John Lennon, I have been a fan of the Beatles since I was very young. I remember watching the film “A Hard Days night” one Saturday morning, not really knowing who they were but loved the music and the humor. Years later when I started a part time job I started buying their records and was really hooked. I think I missed the early 80’s music scene altogether and was floating about somewhere in the 60’s in my head, I really love lots of 60’s bands, The Kinks, The Byrds, Velvet Underground, The Who all that kind of stuff. I really like the honesty and clarity of John Lennon’s songs after the break up of the Beatles, I can really relate to what he says. Other songwriters like Bob Dylan, Lou Reed and Neil Young have also been a major influence on me. I love the way they express their feelings through songs and tell things straight. Other music and bands have also no doubt influenced me, The Stranglers, Echo and the Bunnymen, U2, Oasis to name but a few, but I think on the whole I am mainly influenced by the artists of the 60’s and 70’s.


I like to think of my music as a blend of musical flavours all mixed together like a trifle ! Each spoonful gives you a slightly different taste! The various influences are evident but never quite defining, a little folk, a little rock, a sprinkling of gospel and snippets of classic pop !! If I have to stick my neck out and give it a genre, I would go for something like melodic retro Pop !
