Upon getting the Billy Bragg gig I bought a Nord Piano 2 and Electro 4d and they have changed my life - I hired the same rig on a long US tour and became incredibly attached to that combo! I then used the same set up with Roddy Frame for the 30th anniversary tour of Aztec Camera’s High Land Hard Rain. I have both set up my studio and they figure heavily on tracks I work on
