I am currently living in Meols on the beautiful Wirral Peninsular in the North West of England. where I have my small music studio which I affectionately call Wonderland Studio.
Having been a huge fan of synthesizers and electronic music for as long as I can remember as well as seeing and listening to the pioneers such as Jean Michel-Jarre, Vangelis, Tangerine Dream,Tomita and the prog rock keyboard virtuoso's Rick Wakeman, Keith Emerson, Richard Wright, Tony Banks and many more. In 2013 I decided to learn as much as possible about analogue synths and sound design as my ageing brain would permit.
Having taken early retirement I bought a new Apple iMac and started to find my way round Logic Pro 9 and slowly started building up my studio and attempting to recreate a couple of Jarre's classics such as Oxygene IV and Rendezvous IV, which you can find on my YouTube link.
My first tentative steps into composing my own pieces came with my Threading Shells project which is an ambient collection of tunes inspired by the beach and ocean. Learning as I went along my next project, Astral Voyager, was a bit more adventurous in it's soundscapes and influenced a lot by Jarre and Edgar Froesse from TD. By now I was getting more confident with the whole creative process as well as the technical aspects of production.
By way of a diversion in 2014/15 I made a more beat driven 3 track dance EP called Sparkle having just got Arturia's midi drum machine I just could'nt resist a go at EDM, Trance tunes. Back to 2015, I started to put together the 3rd part of my musical journey called New Age Voyager which has taken me from lying on a beach threading shells to travelling through the cosmos as an astral voyager to exploring the music of Africa , Asia, India, Japan and China with a bit of Celtic influence thrown in. To round off 2015 I was asked to put a compilation album together for the Californian website Music2Meditate,the result is Celestial Tranquility which has 8 tracks of calming relaxation music taken from my previous works.
In 2016 I decided to concentrate on a number of single releases as well as invest in some new equipment and software. 2017 was a busy year with two albums,Survival and Melas Dreams as well as four new singles. 2018 saw the release of the Reflections album along with a superb charity album I contributed to called New Age Music Planet.
