Stan has made his home in Lochranza having spent the previous 30 years based in Oxford although originally from East Kilbride. Now Arran is his home, which he loves and feels very welcome!! This is where he intends to make New Music and meet New Friends. Stan felt it was now time to realise a lifetime ambition and establish his own recording studio.
For the last 2 years he has been doing guitar track sessions via the Internet with various clients both here and in the USA.Has toured extensively as a session guitar player and vocals with many bands and set ups over the years including the USA and Europe and as far as New Zealand! His last band, based in London was the Silver Searchers made up with the drummer from Mud and Sweet along with the resident bass player from the Cavern Club Liverpool. He still joins the boys for shows in England and Europe several times a year.
