I had no expectations of him and he left me feeling super impressed. I didn’t think I knew any of his songs but it turns out I knew most of them. Great voice and decent guitar chops too. Would happily go to a Steve Winwood headline gig now :)

Pretty much agree with @nicksmith on this one but I'm a massive home studio nerd so that isn't in the least bit surprising.
A couple of things to consider before you go down that route. What spec computer/laptop do you have and is it Windows/Linux/Mac?
If you're computer isn't up to spec...
First up; nice tune man. You're output is relentless, I wish I was that prolific with my music writing!
The bass sounds great on my studio monitors but agree it is lost in the mix on my phone / laptop speaks (when isn't it?).
The bass sounds quite clean? You could look at adding a little...
Those newsletters seem a little OTT. To be honest, my inbox is baron as I actively avoid newsletters / email subscriptions at all costs.
As for him as a guitar player, I've put him in the same box as Robben Ford. The box is labelled "Incredible talent. I wish I could do that. Boring".
