Bio

Biography

Heck! I write some good material, but usually only sing/record to basic demo level. Get nervous, forget to breathe and relax!

I write original sings in different styles. I was a winner of BBC Radio 2 & BBC TV's Drama Musical 'Blackpool' Ballad Competition with "Oh Beer Rich, Beer Sweet Midlands Town". The BBC recorded the ballad,Jim Moray sang it on the Mark Radcliffe's Show. My psychedelic Rock track, Mr.Cocaine, a theatrical rock song, got to No 3 in Broadjam's charts in 2005/2006 and again in 2016. Work took me away from my music from a while, but have come back with new songs. My latest, DEMO ONLY tracks have just been uploaded with backing guitarist Mark Hopwood, and Sam Hawkins, doing a spot of duo playing on "Paris Dancer", also Ken Torr on piano on "No Stone", and he produces my tracks. Some of the songs I write are quirky, evicative, alternative. Some are more classically alternative. Some are evocative stories and vignettes, or emotion type songs, possibly suitable for film, musicals, theatre, or TV projects, as well as individual music tracks. Hope you like!
