You'll hear the Spanish guitar, piano, flute, bass, aerophone, ukulele, electric guitar, whistle, timple, celtic flute and I'll mix it all up with a looper.
I play ABBA to ZAPPA, classical to hiphop, originals and covers in any style and try not to repeat any version, life's too short. I do take requests but not during the show and only from subscribers who support me in these financial challenging styles.

Born in Holland, lives in Spain but all that doesn't matter. Music connects us all, makes us equal and brings out the best in us.
I started playing on the street shortly after my voice broke.
As I had difficulty pitching I used to sweep my voice up and down trying to find the right note.
After the first song the manager of the shop I was standing in front of came out, gave me some money and told me to play in front of his competition.
I was to play for a fancy dinner party with some soft chill out instrumental music in the back round.
After the soundcheck, while I went to grab something to eat some young kid fingers played around with the settings.
When I switched the amplifier on all hell broke loose. I was young and panicked and touched every control except the right one, resulting in a bizarre cacophony.
In the ghastly silence afterwards I felt all eyes burning in my back and as in a dream I turned round and lifted up my guitar as if to present the experimental composition.
I'll never forget the ripple of applause
“You made my heart sing.”
