1980 - 2003
After several periods in London I finally returned to Dundee. I took up mainstream employment and continued with music on a semi professional basis playing with contemporary folk and local pop cover bands. Although continuing to perform on the local circuit, a number of life events and circumstances resulted in my ambition to carve a career as a singer/songwriter being placed carefully on the ?sometime later? shelf.
