I was born at a very early age, in London UK. Soon as I could talk, I told my mum, ''When I grow up I want to be a musician'' she said ''Son, I'm afraid you can't do both''. I've discovered growing older is mandatory, but growing up is optional, so I stuck with being a musician. It's been a varied career, good times, lean times, one day chicken, next day feathers, if you know what I mean. Had the pleasure of playing with some great musicians over the years; I'm hoping some of their talent rubbed off on me, just a little. Now based in Bristol, with my own recording studio. Took me a while to embrace new technology (electricity that is). But then, if it wasn't for electricity, we'd all be watching television by candlelight, did you ever think of that? Had some cuts on a few artists CD's, but I'm still waiting for that big one, before my birth certificate runs out. Thanks for your friendship, collaborations, help and advice. And always remember, you're unique, just like everybody else.
Happy that my song Lockdown Blues earmarked by two providers, so wrote another...It Ain't Over Yet

The brief was to write a Prefab Sprout soundalike..rather proud of this, featuring Scott McPherson on lead vocals 'Won't You'
