In brief, I'm primarily a vocalist, guitar & bass player as well as producer; although I also play double bass, banjo, mandolin and can get by on drums, piano and organ.
I have toured the UK, Europe and the US and have also recorded and produced several albums (one of which included the likes of Simple Minds, Squeeze, Robert Fripp and The Waterboys).
I'm as equally comfortable in front of small intimate crowd of twenty as I am a large crowd of 20,000 plus.
Along with numerous University and main venue tours, I have played most of London's prime venues (Marquee, Dingwalls, Apollo etc), as w ... ell as New York's (CBGBs, The Brooklyn Academy Of Music, The China Club, The Cat Club, The Limelight etc.
I don't site read, but have an excellent ear and am very quick musically.
Have toured as a session musician as well as fronted my own band (must have played over four hundred gigs throughout the South-West over last couple of years - fronting my own outfit).
Am very good at ENGAGING with an audience and breaking down barriers. My ad-lib has often been considered something of a comedy act...!
Whilst living in Berlin, I played with a Beatles tribute band (The Beatles being my favourite band).
In a nutshell, I enjoy playing rock'n'roll/motown covers, as well as stripped down acoustic music in the vein of David Gray/Paul Simon.
Far too many to list here.
Almost everything by The Beatles, a lot of Soul & Motown, and all the usual standards from Elvis to Oasis to Rod Stewart to Crowded House.
Please see above.
Many years touring experience in UK, Europe and the US.
Worked and recorded as a session player.
Was signed to MCA in New York, where I recorded with various members of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band.
Have opened up for various big names solo-acoustically, as well as with a band.
Virgin Records, Polydor Records, Universal Music, Sire, Warner Brothers, MCA, Chrysalis.
Was asked to perform at the American Embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan, a number of nightclubs in Cozumel, Mexico,
and have also played live on a number of radio stations (Nicaragua, New York, Berlin...)
