When I started the Liverpool Acoustic website in April 2008 I became a prolific writer of news articles, music reviews and features, and have written and published over 500 articles to date. These include reviews of music releases and live events, a monthly newsletter, a regular NEWS BLAST feature, and other items of news. Also included in my writing portfolio are items written to publicise live music events, which can be found on the Copywriting page.
I started writing in 1997 when I volunteered to contribute humorous features for the Liverpool Hope University student magazine during my time as an undergraduate.
In the 1990s I had three full-page opinion-based articles published in Scouting, the UK Scout Association’s national magazine. Around this time I also wrote a number of article for B-P News, the national magazine for the Baden-Powell Scouts Association.
During my time living and working in Taiwan in 2004/5 I wrote a regular blog chronicling my experiences living and working in a foreign country, my observations on life in the capitol Taipei, and reviews of the many books I read while I was there.

"I must say that the Liverpool Acoustic site is a fantastic resource for musicians, audiences and organisers alike. When I first became interested in acoustic and folk music years and years (!) ago almost everything was by word-of-mouth and you would miss so much. The Liverpool Acoustic website is a fantastic way to keep in touch with great music in Liverpool and the North West. Keep up the great work!!
