The Story of Sheer Bravado!:
I returned to music production in 2016, just aiming to write new material and get it out there on the internet. Then I discovered the wonderful soulful vocals of Jai Lynn and she set me onto the route of writing more soul-influenced tracks.
I grew up in a pub and slept above the jukebox. Those 45s became the soundtrack of my life. They initiated a lifelong love of music that still resonates today. Roxy Music, Genesis, Motown, ELO, U2, Radiohead and many others influenced me. I have never subscribed to any one genre above another. They have all influenced and inspired me with sheer bravado. Now it’s time to add the exclamation mark!
