Blue Wurly - drawing by Simon Beck
I'm a self-taught multi-instrumentalist, specialising in keyboards and bass guitar. I also play a bit of chromatic harmonica, rhythm guitar and percussion.

During the past 30 years I have played a wide variety of music in different bands, including electro-pop, jazz, 60s soul and jump-blues.

I was a founder-member of Mississippi John L Watson's 8-piece "Odyssey Blues Band" in the 1990s, and since then I have been mainly concentrating on my own blues and boogie-woogie material.

I also play keyboards in The Skanx, a 9-piece ska/reggae/funk band. Check us out!

I am interested in collaborating with all sorts of musicians, so if you like what you hear, contact me!

Hi Simon- I really dig your one man band - Watermelon Man is an old favourite of mine going way back, and hallelujah, your Amazing Grace has a lot of soul. As it were, high five to you! Keep those good vibes flowing... Ron

Thanks for popping by, Simon. I use some VST, some real synth, and some live instruments. Only about 5 percent of my stuff ever gets mastered properly, though. It would be a good thing if more people made music in the spirit that you do. It's great stuff.

Love your music. I teach the " belles" and my colleague and me are always emphasising energy, committment, and listenability. Music is about being entertained and entertaining. They don't call it" the performing arts" for nothing. Graham...
