Artist Bio

Influences:   Tom Waits, Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly, Muddy Waters, Hank Williams, Billy Childish, books about maritime disasters

I am a History teacher and I love weird stories from the past. I listen to a lot of old music, particularly old folk, blues, country . I live in March, Cambridgeshire. I used to play in bands in the past but now play everything on my own, so expect some ramshackle guitar, bass and percussion (mostly hitting cardboard boxes when drum machines won't cooperate), and some croaking vocals.

    Yes, quitfamiliar withe perceptive I do aim for the oldie novelty song thing. Cambridge is the one part of UK I am familiar with -- some Trinity profs created a startup company around a math-analytical geometric solid modeler written in Fortran -- My US company sold hardware terminals, I got to know some wondrful programmers who wrote the most delightful comments in their code ... The computer room was in a basement that once housed some of Darwin's aquaria. Tea lady on staff.

    Your East Anglian concept sounds cool. It is Witchfinder General country after all! Do you listen to the Dark Histories podcast? If you don't, you definitely should!
