Neil has been writing and recording music for many years, not only in the trance/dance music genre but also in a more laid back, chilled out style, even having some of the more ambient tunes picked up and played on radio 4! His first real taste of life in a band and all that that involves was with a 4 piece synth outfit under the name of ‘The Tower’. They gigged and recorded extensively for many years, and this was the bedrock of experience in song writing, producing, recording and live performance that he has built on over the years.
From there he moved more into the Dj scene playing out and about in club land, although he was never really fully comfortable with being away from the studio and songwriting environment which he loves so much. After this venture he joined another band called ‘Redford’, a trio consisting Lisa Redford – guitar, vocals. Richard Lee – guitar, harmonica and vocals, and Neil on keyboards and production. They gigged and wrote together for a couple of years, notably warming up for the Sneaker Pimps on their tour.
