recently went solo after years of playing with the best band in the universe "the coloured dreams", we toured europe a few times and made it to the finals of various music contests, ive been concentrating on writing new songs and recording my album, i play all the instruments on the songs on here, which is a bit difficult when playing live so i sometimes have other musicians or i just do acoustic sets, recently played my first solo gig at the cavern club in liverpool at the international pop overthrow 2008, it went really well, ive been invited to play in l.a next year at the same festival!, things are happening really fast so watch this space!
