From a young age, I have been exposed to a wide range of musical genres, thanks to my parents’ eclectic record collection. It included iconic albums from The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, Queen and a whole catalogue of classical recordings.

This exposure allowed me to develop a high interest in music. I started playing brass in the school orchestra from the age of 7.
​At 14 I picked up the guitar and developed a hybrid picking style after studying people like Ralph McTell. I also play piano and started writing music at 15, usually about the human condition.

My latest album YOU SHINE is a 14 song collection of original songs recorded at M2 Studios in Coven, S. Staffs and features 60 minutes of music and 20 guest artists.

It is deeply personal and autobiographical and at the same time has mass appeal to people of all ages and genders who will recognised some common themes such as love, life and loss.
