About: BRM Style

Easy Listening

Happy songs, sad songs, funny songs, love songs, and songs about life in general.
The great advantage of being a folk-musician is exposure to many musical genres:
Soul, Blues, Jazz, Gospel, Negro Spirituals, protest songs and songs about social justice.

In addition to some self-penned works I sing covers of the following artists:

Paul Simon, The Seekers, John Denver, Lennon & McCartney, Michael Buble,
Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Andy Williams, Elvis Presely, Perry Como and MORE.

My current repertoire can be found HERE.

The bar-chart below represents the respective genres featured in each concert.


About: Musical Experience

I have been playing music since my eighth birthday. I was hoping
for a guitar but, apparently, I was setting my sights a bit too high.
My parents gave me a plastic ukulele instead.

My Plastic Era

Ukulele, Recorder and Melodica

The ukulele lasted until the one of the tuning pegs broke.
From age nine I studied the (plastic) descant recorder at school. Privately, I taught myself to play the Melodica Soprano. True, this sported a steel body but the mouthpiece and keys were 100% plastic.

My plywood era

First Guitar

After a brief flirtation with a clarinet my thoughts returned to my first love. With my first pay-check I bought the cheapest guitar I could find. They say a bad workman always blames his tools, yet my playing improved dramatically when I upgraded to a unit with a finger-board that wasn't warped.

Performance experience

Solo, Duo, Group

Since the 70s I have played publically on an ad-hoc basis in a variety of settings. I launched into performing in aged care sites at the beginning of 2016. Performances are currently averaging almost eighty per year.


Soft synths

Backing tracks sometimes need adjustments to key or tempo. Sometimes the track I need is not avalaible for purchase so I make one myself, recording live instruments, a variety of software programs and sound-sampling suites.
