Welcome to my web site. Since age 11 in 1972 I have been writing and performing, I played full time for a number of years in NZ and Europe. I returned home to NZ in Dec 1998 and would never leave to live anywhere else. I love our outdoors and have written songs to support this.

My songs are on Spotify, Amazon, itunes and other music streaming sites.

MP3 compressed Music Streaming

This quote by "Dave Hunter" sums it up pretty well:

"Seemingly daily our lives are depleted of depth and dimension as new developments in the name of convenience and speed disguise a steady decline in pure quality"

As LP records slowly regain a place into peoples collections. Music streaming is a great way to explore new artist (me included) and music, play on the move or in the car. Then personally I like to hunt out the LP for my Vinyl collection. It is sad that live music (or venues for original music) have dissappeared. Frustrating when in the 70's we enjoyed fresh new music, danced to new music and purchased new music but now 40 years later it has to be the same ole tripe. Radio stations like "classic" or "Hits" is like reading the same newspaper everyday since 1975. And it is so not true that there is no good new music. So music streaming has its place to get around these closed attitudes. I love hearing new music, new artists.
