Influences

So many things have influenced my music and my life.

Musically, allsorts from Prog Rock: Pink Floyd, Procol Harum, Rick Wakeman, Yes. Early Barclay James Harvest. Electric Folk Stuff: Lindisfarne, The Strawbs, Home Service etc. Throw in The Shadows and 60s instrumentals, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, a cross of Classical stuff from Sibelius to Ravel via Widor's Toccata and Carl JenkinsĀ and a selection of 70s Dutch music, Earth and Fire, Ekseption etc. Then there's quirky stuff like Stackridge. Not to mention Stage Musicals which have their own page on this site.

I really enjoy rearranging other people's stuff into my style. Oh and to have fun!

One single song that changed my life ----- A Whiter Shade of Pale.
