Side Projects

I’ve recently been creating a lot of my own music just for the sheer enjoyment of it and thought I’d share it with you here.

Smoky

I release ambient guitar drone EPs under the name Smoky.  All the tracks were recorded very simply, with an Epiphone Les Paul Custom, a Strymon Timeline and Strymon Big Sky.  These EPs have proved pretty popular; one track, Penarth Pier, taking on a life of its own on Spotify with nearly 1.5 million plays.  I’m delighted with the EPs and there will be more coming your way soon!

Listen on Spotify or download from Bandcamp.

David Benjamin Haynes

I’ve been teaching myself to play piano a bit better, and am recording these mellow, hazy, English, instrumental piano compositions as I go.

The King Of Indecision

Another ambient alter ego – this is more synth-based, experimental and diverse than the Smoky EPs.  And much more “cool” as well, apparently.

Soundwaves

I love relaxing sounds.  In my spare time, I’ve started recording the sound of waterfalls, streams and, when I can, the sea.  I’m also recording household sounds such as kettles and baths running.  You can find it all here.
