He has only recently begun to reveal his vocal abilities.

''Me,'' he replied.

GO Live! at Angels Gate is a weekly video series which aims to showcase both new and established musicians in Christchurch.

Angels Gate Recording Studio in Sydenham is run by Kevin Allison who is donating his time and considerable experience to this series.

If Allison's recording equipment could talk, it would tell lengthy yarns about being lent to the producer of Queen, The Cars and working with Allison on albums for Pat Benatar, Joe Walsh, Chris Isaak, Jude Cole and more. Allison has worked with Ringo Starr, the B52s, Smash Mouth, Lenny Kravitz, Tim Weisberg, Neil Sedaka, Berlin, Mick Fleetwood and, for over 20 years, as part of part of Stevie Wonder's touring crew.
