Describe Your Sound

Jangly guitars, mischievous melodies, dazed visions and sunshine grooves melt together to tell tales of comfort and confusion, desire and doubt, adoration and anxiety, daydream and disaster; All in his head.



I was writing and recording under the name Petrichoral for a few years. After a little break and spending a long time working on new songs I felt it was time for a new name to suit a new sound.


The Spunloves, Gunns, Allah-las, The Murlocs, Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Jim Mitchells, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Stone Roses
