I'm basically a 'bedroom' songwriter who has accumulated many ideas but did nothing with them until modern computer technology made it possible to produce professional sounding songs.
I get by on piano and guitar but by no means a consummate musician. Also I'm not a singer and relied upon Studio Pros for professional vocal takes based on my (often embarrassing) scratch vocal demos.
I did play with friends in a band called ShadesOf where the music was more prog rock orientated. Managed to play a few live gigs as the keyboard player.
