THANK YOU for visiting this page.

In the house I grew up in we had a piano and I used to mess around on it, and after a while I managed to make up a few songs.

When I was 16 I bought a drum kit, it cost 100 quid, and it took me a year to pay for it - It was a long time ago.

I was a drummer in a few bands around Gloucestershire and Warwickshire in the mid 70's. I also used to play a piano and guitar in floating bar in the Gloucester docks. It was all my own work - not covers.

I did a course in Art and Drama at Stratford on Avon, and later on I did a degree in "creative arts".

I work as a video and film camera operator, and also lecture in a variety of different universities, colleges and institutions.

I'm always messing about with my piano, and computer. All the recordings here are done at home on my iMac.

My main focus is on trying to create songs with interesting words. I hope that the tunes are interesting too.

I like all sorts of music, and I hate rhubarb and brussel sprouts.

By the way you can find out more and download a podcast from my site :

Love and stuff

'Stupid Feet' is a gem and you have a very listenable, soothing voice. Doesn't remind me of anyone, which is great as I rate originality and uniqueness. One should always strive for a distinctive style and sound. So top marks: a high 5.

Stupid Feet is truley a masterpiece. It's a bouncy song on the surface, but I found myself pondering deeply on the troubled tangos of my life. When things are out of step and theres nothing you can do - awakard :)

"Coming Back" starts out in 6/8 and even has a measure of 9/8 thrown in each verse for good measure. By the way, like your tunes - refreshingly different. Kerry (from lesson zero)

Oh, ta, Roge! Fantastic stuff, there. I like rhubarb, but I don't like Brussel sprouts, so your wonderful music was like having rhubarb in my ear. And a marvellous thing that I've never experienced before it was too.
