My name is Tez Locke.
I am a songwriter/performer based in Devon, in the UK.
I have been writing music and performing since the early 70's most notably with the bands Springheel Jack and Smart Alec. I co-wrote the songs for two singles released by Smart Alec in 1980/81 on B&C Records.
In recent years I have focused on my songwriting and now have a catalog of some 80+ original songs. I write in various genres to include Pop, Folk, Rock and Country and am actively seeking publishing deals/placements for my songs.
Too many to mention perhaps, but have to say Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran, The Stones, Beatles, James Taylor, Everly Bros, Joni Mitchell, Santana, Hendrix, John Mayall, BB King, Kinks, Free, Joan Armatrading, AC/DC, Frankie Miller, Ry Cooder, Leon Russel, Tim McGraw, Eric Church, JJ Cale, John Martyn etc etc etc
