Goldfrapp, Kraftwerk and most synth-based bands.

I've played in a lot of covers bands, but as a solo artist it would have been doing my first solo gig at the Culmhead Music Fest in September 2006.

Where would you most like to play?

Glastonbury would be nice, or the Electric Picnic in Ireland or even the Electric Proms.

Finally, tell us some interesting facts about yourself

I once had a release in Germany which reached a number-one slot in an independent chart. This was a chillout album with a jazz feel.

I like to change my musical ideas (though still using synths) and recreate different styles, but in my own way - my most recent album, Clinical Lovers, was very electronic.
