I started writing very late in life, recorded in Melbourne ,Aust., travelled to England. I had 2 bands ,the first in WALES, then
in LONDON, THE SECOND. Many band names. BUT..my songwriting was improved and we recorded many songs.
The Band was with very talented musicians ,and we got on very well. .we still talk to each other, and we are very good friends.
I returned to Melbourne, with English girlfriend, again influenced by her ,and other girls to write more songs ,again different from U.K
I went to Sydney ,recorded many Songs with well known ,established Musicians, and Vocalists. Great Session Muso's / Singers.
