I've been singing and writing songs for as long as I can remember!
But, before and after a time I can remember, I've been bass player, guitarist and vocalist with a number of bands including Plusupport, The Support, Three Plus One, The Penguins, The Big Push, Shaken Not Stirred, Undercover, Who Are You and - currently - The Echo.
Born in Bromley, my musical life started at the age of 8 years old with a vocal and tennis racket reel-to-reel recording of Don McLean’s American Pie. I couldn’t play the guitar at the time.
Song writing began in my early twenties with Bromley duo Clarion Call - with my best mate Mark Ferris. We made two demos at the BBC’s Broadcasting House.
My debut album 'Green Triangle' - out on CD, download and streaming - was self-released in 2020.
Developing my own style of folk and pop, ‘Green Triangle’features a mixture of stories and catchy tunes: local ghost stories (Checkendon’s ‘Green Triangle’ and Ipsden’s ‘Alas, My Brother’); reflections on childhood and parenthood (‘Least Likely To’ and ‘Crossing the Rubicon’); a medieval mystery (‘The Miraculous Beam’); and a celebration of England (‘The English Rain’).
Look out for the second album, 'East of the Moon and West of the Sun' coming in early 2023.
