Rowan playing everything at once...as usual. Rogue electric violin, Madame Jinglefrets the Ibanez acoustic, Lady the Ibanez electric, Dent the B.C. Rich platinum warlock bass all shown. Squier Stagemaster and big keyboards not shown.

Born rebel. I annoy everyone by being different.

Hi, I've played piano/keyboards since about the 1960s and guitar since 1999. Bass, violin, accordian, harmonica since whenever it was. I started with classical and now play a variety of styles including rock and blues.

I compose music of various styles.

Due to some injuries...I haven't played much in a while. But, I still listen and do other music related things.
