I'm a 21st century bard - a digital artist who uses coding, graphics, music and anything else I can lay my hands on to tell stories and create beautiful and inspiring works of art. Although I am primarily a musician, I also write, make videos, artwork and design games.

I'm interested in helping others to develop their creative talents and co-creative storytelling and I'd love to able to give time, energy and resources for free to those who need it.

Friday 25th March 2022 :: The Anarchetypes - King Arthur, Glastonbury :: with support from Chumley Warner Brothers and Acoustic Damps :: £5 tix from Eventbrite

The Anarchetypes are Glastonbury's grooviest psychedelic space rock band. A group of brightly coloured pan-galactic zing thrubblers serving up a smorgasbord of Space Punk, Stoner Rock, Acid Jazz and 60's Psyche finely tuned to explode ecstatically in your head all at once.

Chumley Warner Brothers are a folk music duo with leanings toward psychedelia and space rock. Featuring Bridget Wishart – vocals and EWI, and Martin Plumley – vocals and acoustic guitar, they herald from Somerset and frequently perform live around the UK. Acoustic Damps are Woodbine and Keith from the Deviant Amps performing a stripped-down acoustic set.

Break out your shades and flares for a night of authentic UK Festival Psychedelia!

Recent releases:

Last year saw the release of Just, the first actual studio album by The Anarchetypes. Originally conceived as a collection of solo demos, drummer Dan Poole suggested overdubbing parts via the internet during the 2020 lockdown. This is the first album I’ve produced myself from concept to cover and I'm incredibly pleased with the results. Downloads are available from Bandcamp.

Space Tourist is the follow-up companion released in February. It's an album of cinematic instrumental pieces intended to be used as film music. It features some remixes of Just and several completely original ambient and orchestral pieces. The whole thing is loosely inspired by Tarkovsky’s cult 1979 sci-fi movie Stalker. Downloads also available from Bandcamp.
