Greetings, salutations and welcome to my website.

Feel free to wonder about and check out all the links to music and other cool links.

I’ve been in hibernation for quite some time for many different reasons. In that time I’ve managed to play some acoustic guitar at home while being influenced by wherever I was living on the planet at that particular moment.

I spent most of last year in New Zealand with my family and like almost everyone, I had an incredibly challenging 2021. Although challenging, the silver lining or linings shall I say, were the many moments that I had with the family living in our beach house in Narrow Neck. Some days it seemed like the whole world was falling but we knew we had each other to count on. That was a deeply uplifting feeling.

Those moments ignited powerful feelings in me and inspired me to keep picking up my guitar everyday whenever I had a moment to spare to tap into that energy.

I now find myself in a place where I’ve got tons of music. Old songs that I’m playing in a new way and new songs that are fresh and begging to be played live.

I’ve started a series of iPhone jams that I’m posting. Some of these posts are strait up demos for going into the band (all the YouTube links are on this site).

I’m one small step from going to the studio and laying some tracks down for a new record. I know so many people that I want to take to the studio with me but I have a feeling that I might hook up with a certain local Bahraini band and see what happens in the studio. Let’s see what tomorrow brings.

So without getting into any details I’m hoping that 2022 will be the busiest year playing, recording, and releasing music in a long long time. I can’t wait to share some new music and play some live shows for some good people.

Sending out lots of positive energy and please send some my way so that I’m an find my way back to the studio and stage sometime soon.

Playing a few tunes today 😎 I’ve booked a date and a studio in London to film a short acoustic set of three songs that are going to complete my new EP – ‘A Story’ and ‘Skin Deep’ have been recorded – ‘Refugee’, ‘Thick Skinned’, and ‘Banned’ will be the next three – for now I will enjoy playing them with a good friend while in London and record a small session of the three tunes while here (the EP studio recordings start in September) 🎧🎤 I’ll post the warm up demos which I recorded today as reference just a little later #photooftheday #picoftheday #blackandwhitephotography #taylorguitars #taylorswift #whynot See MoreSee Less
