Bedroom "musician"

I like to record the odd bit of music - check out my original songs on Spotify, or my SoundCloud covers! šŸ‘€

Some things I like

  • šŸŽø Generally mucking about on my guitar or piano - sometimes writing music when the creativity sparks
  • šŸƒā€ā™‚ļø Getting out for a run, or on my bike. Forever training for a half marathon...
  • āš½ļø Plymouth Argyle and FPL (both for better or worse)
  • šŸ“ŗ Finding a new show - currently on Only Murders in the Building
  • šŸ• My scruffy terrier, Billy
  • šŸ„ø Something a bit geeky - probably Doctor Who or Star Trek
  • šŸ¦œ Getting out in nature - long hikes and bird-watching (actually, good name for song there...)
  • šŸ•ŗ Seeing some live music!
  • šŸ•¹ Video games - Destiny 2 & Sea of Thieves are my current timesinks
  • šŸ» Some kind of funky craft beer
  • šŸŽŖ Glastonbury Festival - I have so many great memories there... if only I could make more by successfully getting tickets...
  • šŸ¦ Literally anything made by Edgar Wright, or with Simon Pegg
  • šŸŽ§ Phoebe Bridgers, Everything Everything, Loyle Carner, Editors or something equally melancholic...
