I am a Scottish entertainer performing a general mix of rock and pop classics through the decades. However, I am a best known for my performances as Queen front man Freddie Mercury and for my singing hypnotist show "Hypnosong"
I recently appeared on the first series of BBC1's prime time Saturday night TV show 'Pitch Battle' and managed to secure 3rd place in the LIVE grand final along with ScotSoul, having sung with the legendary Chaka Khan. I also featured on a British Academy award nominated documentary about the entertainment business for BBC Scotland called "Viva Variety" and have per ... formed my debut song "Home Is Where The Heart Is" on BBC Newsnight. Other TV performances include STV`s Live at Five show and STV/ Grampian news with my debut song.
I regularly perform in hotels throughout Scotland for visiting tourists from Europe, Canada and America. I am currently studying intermediate German as part of my Language Studies degree, moving on to Spanish late 2018, which has proven useful in my cabaret shows.
Other musical experience includes musical theatre shows with Mummers Theatre Group based in Clydebank, from 2003 until present. I played the part of the Arbiter in Chess during my first performance back in 2003 and have since appeared in various musical revues and shows including Sweet Charity, Carousel and most recently 9 to 5.
