Musician - Producer - Composer - Songwriter

I am a songwriter,producer, composer and multi-instrumentalist based in Knaresborough North Yorkshire, UK. I write in a lot of styles (including instrumental) and that's why I have various music projects on the go - all recorded at my private studio, Northern Soundscapes. These projects can all be found on my northernsoundscapes.bandcamp.com Bandcamp site.
Two projects lean towards the 'Prog'/Art Rock sphere ('TimMusicWorld' - specialising in music inspired by Yorkshire history and culture and 'Silver Hunter' - an Anglo-French collaboration). Another project 'Light Engineering' leans towards the esoteric end of 80s pop. I also compose instrumental music: this ranges from electronica and prog through to Smooth Jazz. Instrumental influences include Peter White, Mike Oldfield,Vangelis and Tangerine Dream. Songwriting-wise I'm influenced by anything Trevor Horn was involved in, plus 10cc; Supertramp; Genesis, Steely Dan; The Alan Parsons project, Al Stewart and many more including, of course, The Beatles. I also like Baroque Classical music e.g. Handel, Bach etc.
This music is all available on Bandcamp.com.I also broadcast Quarterly Podcasts on MixCloud featuring news and latest updates about my music.
