I am a session guitarist based in the South East of the UK. I can provide high quality bespoke guitar parts for your mix online. Check out the online sessions page for more.
Some of the artists I’ve worked with include Eric7 (S’Express), Shovell (M People), comedian Adam Buxton, Bibi Zhou (MTV Best Worldwide Act at the 2014 EMAs) and DJ Sandy Rivera.
In 2016 I played on Revolver II, also featuring Nashville session ace Brent Mason. Currently I’m producing and playing on an album of jazz/fusion with keyboard player/songwriter Keith High – also set to feature Zak Barrett and Seth Govan.
Playing-wise, my biggest influences are probably Eddie Van Halen and Steve Lukather, but I also love Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jeff Beck. I love melodic technical players like Marty Friedman and John Petrucci, and I also appreciate clever arrangers like Graham Coxon and The Edge.
I’m well-versed in cover material, having been active on the London circuit for several years. I’ve played in theatre productions and shows including In Dreams and The Carpenters Tribute Show. I run my own function band End Of The Century in which I also sing lead and backing vocals. I can learn parts quickly by ear, I can sight read, and I also play classical guitar and drums to a high standard.
I’m passionate about tone and have a wide range of equipment. My rig is modular and is scaleable to any conceivable scenario; from an explosive-sounding fly rig, to a versatile medium sized studio set-up, to an expansive stereo rig for large stages.
“I’ve worked with Don for a few years now and he is truly an incredible guitarist and singer. His attention to detail is second to none in all areas of his work. A true professional who has all the attributes you need from a pro musician. A great attitude, reliable with an amazing talent, top quality equipment and most of all a great guy to hang with!
I would recommend Don for any project, album, tour or gig.”
“I have been writing, recording and touring with different country, pop, rock and metal artists ever since the year 2000 in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Germany, France and the USA. I just finished a original full length album with Don Stick and can’t find enough good words to share. True professional with amazing tone and technical skills but most importantly a very musical approach – adding just what a song needs and pushing the rest of the musicians to perform better because of that.”
