I’m over the moon to announce an endorsement with Rufus Guitars. Rufus Guitars are a small British company hand making custom built guitars from sustainable British wood. They’re lovely looking isntruments, sound fantastic in a range of woods and best of all they’re British – helping keep the art and craftsmanship alive. You can check out their guitars and learn a bit about the acoustics of the various woods involved by visiting the site.

My physical style of playing can be quite rough on a guitar and on the strings in particualr – it has cost me a small fortune in strings since I started and it’s not getting cheaper! With that in mind I’m over the moon to announce that I’m now officially endorsing Dovetail Strings – excellent quality and a broad range of string gauges available for the gigging musician.

G7th Capo Endorsement

For what I do, the G7th capo is an excellent piece of kit – several models are available and I’ve been using them for a while. They’re not the cheapest capos available but are, in my opinion, amongst the best (personally I think THE best) available today. With that in mind I’m over the moon to be officially endorsing the full range of G7 capos.

A huge thanks to Gary for a brilliant day recording my new demo tracks – got a great sound for me and made the whole day a doddle and great fun. Looking forward to working with Gary again and to getting the demos up on Soundcloud soon.

Recording First EP

Weather permitting I’m aiming to record my first EP on Wednesday 23rd January. The plan is for a 4 track EP with 3 originals and a cover of a fantastic classic tune. It’s just me so I’m aiming to get it all recorded in a day. Fingers crossed that the snow and ice don’t mess up the roads or it’ll mean delays, delays, delays.

Just a quick thanks to the Blues Bar in Plymouth for having me on tonight, and to everyone who came out in the cold. Much appreciated. Hopefully we can do it again some time.
