  • Artwork for my new album.
    on Nov 16, 2011
    The art work is finished for my upcoming solo album. It's quite an uncomfortable feeling for me to bare my soul and record songs for posterity, but with no other creative musical option on my cards and some downtime. I felt it was time to take a big...
  • Early morning with Tamira on English Breakfast Radio
    on Apr 13, 2011
    I set my alarm clock for the first time since I left the office job today. Tamira had scored an appearance on English Breakfast Radio. The drawback was that we had to cycle out to the docks at the north of the centre just after 7 in the morning. Tami...
  • My Dutch TV debut
    on Apr 10, 2011
    At last week's Jam a great guy came in called Alex. He was Malaysian but had spent a lot of time in Australia and he had the best of both destinations. He was a singer, guitar player and songwriter and he was over in Amsterdam as part of a TV series...
  • Jamming with Sandra and Manuel
    on Apr 7, 2011
    Sandra and Manuel joined us this week in the Jam Session. It gave it a great boost. We did an excellent version of Ramble On by Led Zeppelin. I played bass and made the mistake of knowing the bass part. I don't play bass often, so my Bass playing fin...
  • Day 2 - Mixing Fonz
    on Apr 6, 2011
    I'm back in the control room. The control room is a big comfy seat in front of my speakers with the laptop on my knees. I've got 4 tracks to mix for Fonz and then 6 to master. I was a little apprehensive as I've never done this for any type of music...
  • Sandra's back!
    on Apr 5, 2011
    The sun has returned to Amsterdam and Sandra has come with it! She's on good form, having learned some great songs to play with her wonderful guitar playing boyfriend Manuel. Look out for the three of us doing a great version of Ramble on by Led Zepp...
  • Day 1 - Recording Fonz
    on Apr 4, 2011
    It feels great turning the living room into a recording studio again. I have great memories of recording Sandra and then Tamira in a similar setting. First up is the guitar: He's using a virtual amp and effects, so we don't need to worry about mi...
  • New recording project - Fonz Fonzarelly
    on Apr 3, 2011
    Starting as I mean to go on, I went to Melody Line today for a meeting with Alfons. I know him through Tamira, and he's been to a few of the Jam Sessions. He's a multitalented guitarist/singer/rapper. He's keen to pull together various music endevour...
  • Pastures new
    on Apr 1, 2011
    I'm now officially redundant. It's been a tough year so far, mostly spent sitting in an office where everyone knows that there is a big changing coming up. I decided that the sooner I got on with life the better. This equated to stopping working on t...
  • Couch Jam
    on Mar 18, 2011
    Our neigh ours dog is on holiday. I didn't have to babysit this Friday, so I was able to go to the excellent Talia CouchJam. It was the usual wonderfully relaxed affair, with great food and great music. The highlight for me was a medley of impromptu...
