I'm a song writer and a performer.
I love writing music more than anything, and I also love arranging and performing. I write and perform primarily as Capitansam, as a soloist and as a band. I write and perform as a soloist, in bands and duos. I work regularly with Phil Quinn, with whom I played for several years in Little Volcanoes. We now write together and perform with the Vanguards.
I grew up on my Mum's vinyl collection and mostly Stevie Wonder, Eric Clapton and Queen. I also love Earth, wind and fire, Fleetwood Mac, Santana, blood sweat and tears, Eagles, Michael Jackson, Oasis, Sting and Pink Floyd.
I love the great songwriters, especially Carole King, James Taylor, Elton John, Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen. I write free from constraints, although I know all these artists colour my style.
I write for piano and vocal, and also write for strings and brass. I fell in love with brass playing in Wigan Youth Jazz Orchestra as a child, and explored the world of strings whilst studying classical composition at Birmingham Conservatoire, where I achieved a first.
I write for the love of music and to express myself through Blues, Pop, Rock, Folk and Latin styles.
