Employment History

and I am a freelance musician/producer working across a variety of fields. I am based in Swansea, South Wales but I am willing to travel for the right projects. I am available for work in a range of roles including, but not limited to:
- Session Guitarist (Advanced – All Styles except jazz)
- Guitar Tuition (All ages/abilities)
- Producer
- Remixer (Electro/Dubstep)
- Mix Engineer
- Mastering Engineer
- Composer/Songwriter
My primary instrument is guitar which I play to an advanced standard. I have 10 years of experience playing live and in the studio. I started at a very young age and quickly immersed myself in music. My dedication to my playing and my craft has led me around the UK on many headline tours with both signed and unsigned bands and I have played many established artists as some of the UK’s most prestigious venues.
I am able to provide bass guitar session work to an intermediate standard, primarily in the rock/blues/pop genres.

I am able to work as a producer/re-mixer/mix engineer. I have been doing freelance work in this field for two years and have experience in a number of South Wales studios. I also work out of my own home studio.
I am able to work in a range of DAW’s such as Ableton , Cubase, Pro Tools, Studio One and Reaper. My preferred DAW’s are Ableton and Cubase but I am flexible in my working approach and understanding that not all studios come equipped with my preferred software packages. I can operate all the DAW’s to an advanced standard. I also work with Waves plugins and Native Instruments synths (Massive, FM8). A full equipment/plug-in list can be provided on demand.
I am also available for guitar tuition. I teach from my studio in Swansea and at students own houses. I am currently teaching a range of pupils from age 11 – 65 of varying abilities. I tailor my lessons to my students requirements.

2012 - 2013, Guitar Tutor
Self-Employed
I offering guitar tuition to all ages/abilities from my studio in Swansea. I am also able to travel to students houses for lessons based on their needs. I currently teach a range of students from age 11 to 65. I am able to teach a variety of styles ranging from blues and pop to rock and metal. I tailor my lessons to my students requirements to aid their development and ambitions with the instrument.
2011 - 2013, Producer/Mix-Engineer/Re-mixer/Song-writer
Self-Employed
Since 2011 I have been working as a freelance producer/mix engineer/remixer out of my own studio working on a variety of projects and remixes. I have collaborated with artists overseas via the internet and I have worked on a variety of local projects from my own studio and local studios.

I am available for mixing work, production work, remixing work and mastering and I have no boundaries on genre. I pride myself on working directly with the artists to establish their exact needs and requirements before putting those requirements into the final product.
I have worked on unofficial re-mixes for artists such as DJ Fresh, Flux Pavilion, Zedd, Dillon Francis and Paloma Faith.
I am have also worked on official remixes for LA Based Singer/Songwriter IAMEVE and Christian Shaker (The Voice: Romania Semi Finalist 2012).
Most recently, I have completed a mix/master of a four track EP for Newcastle based singer/songwriter Georgia Daniels.

I am proficient in a range of DAW’s such as Ableton (Preferred), Cubase (Preferred), Pro Tools, Studio One, Reaper.
In my home studio I have a set up running Ableton and Cubase with Waves, Native Instruments and iZotope plugins and virtual instruments. I am also able to offer drum programming and I use Toontrack Superior Drummer 2.0 (and associated add on packs).
2011, Musician (session)
New Device (Band)
During the first half of 2011, I spent 5 months as a live session guitarist with London based rock band New Device. I joined the band 2 weeks prior to their UK Headline Tour due to commitment issues with the previous guitarists. I was tasked with learning the tracks from their debut album and then performing this live with the band. The album was written/recorded for two guitarists and the band had previously lost both guitar players within a short space of time. I spent time re-arranging some of the parts to make them suitable for a solo guitarist to play live without compromising the integrity of the song structures. We completed 5 months’ worth of shows all over the UK as a headline act in some of the country’s best venues. In May 2011 I decided to step down from my role in New Device to commit to my production work.
2008 - 2011, Guitarist
Forever Vendetta (Band)
From 2008 until January 2011 I was the lead guitarist and founding member of Swansea based rock band Forever Vendetta. During my time with the band we successfully completed a run of UK headline shows, played a variety of festivals and support slots with established acts and released two self-funded, self-released EP’s. Our first EP was released as a free download from Myspace and obtained over 10,000 downloads from the download link we created for the purpose. Both our EP’s received extensive airplay from a number of established and independent radio stations worldwide.
I also acted as the bands manager/booking agent and I was responsible for booking shows and covering the logistics of the bands time on the road.
In 2009 we were selected from a Myspace poll headed by Ozzy Osbourne and publicist Gill Miles. Together, Ozzy and Gill selected their top 10 favourite UK unsigned bands. We were put in the top 10 alongside other bands such as The Defiled, Black Spiders and GU Medicine.
I left Forever Vendetta in January 2011 to pursue my session work with London based band New Device and to begin my production career.
