About Me

I started playing guitar at the age of 14 having been given a battered instrument by my Brother-In-Law which had quite literally 'fallen' off the back of the van he was following!..........

Well......... after a lot of gluing to the bodywork and a new set of strings I decided to give it a go!

 

Fast forward a few years and I have now gained a lot of experience in performance from a wide variety of musical genres and shows in venues worldwide, mostly playing electric/acoustic guitar but with the occasional outing on Bass:

 

  • As a solo performer at Village Fetes/Pubs/Restaurants/Weddings/Theatres & guitar recitals.
  • Working as a pit/stage musician in Musical Theatre Productions across the UK.
  • As a touring guitarist and band member in various show productions worldwide.
  • Recording sessions for Studio/TV/Radio.
