Extras experience

Previous extras experience


In 2017 I appeared in a music video for a single released by up and coming RnB star Mark Dwayne - who has worked with the likes of Shola Ama and many more. It was a great Experience! This was following me playing the lead in my own music video for my single 'I See You' - which can be found on my profile. I have found that performing shows 3 times a week or more, particularly when there are things going on in your personal life that you cannot be allowed to affect your performance, you strongly rely on your ability to 'act' throughout. It is a skill I've come to really enjoy and would like to explore in other ways than when performing music.

Modeling

Modeling experience

Beginner, starting out


Although I have no paid modelling experience, I often have promotional photo/video shoots to enhance and market my music. This has led to me becoming comfortable being in front on the camera - both being directed and using initiative. I have been told I am photogenic by photographers and prompted to look into photographic/fashion modelling. I would like to explore further opportunities within this sector.

I am 38 years old, and I am fortunate enough to be a full time tribute/covers artiste, as well as a singer/songwriter. I started singing in Church at an early age, along with playing instruments. I began singing for a living at the age of 32, never believing I was good enough prior to that. My wife encouraged me to try, and we've not looked back! From my 1st gig in a Social Club, I have been blessed to work in some incredible venues Internationally - including the 5* Sensatori Resorts. I was also chosen to support Ray Lewis, lead singer of legendary Motown group The Drifters in April 2017... and led to me being asked to perform with him on a number of occasions as part of the 'Still Drifting' line up - which is an amazing, ongoing experience! I have performed guest spots at large Theatre tours, most recently that of the sensational, Internationally loved Nya King with her show 'The Whitney Houston Live Experience'.
I was recently hand picked to front a new band 'Apollo Gold' - a wedding/corporate band exclusively managed by Apollo Live Entertainment.
I perform 3 solo shows:
*A Tribute To The Legends Of Soul and Motown Show
*For The Love of Luther Tribute Show
*Old Skool Flava - Classic 80's and 90's RnB Show
I released my debut single 'I See You' in September 2016, written about our journey with Fibromyalgia (a little known condition my wife suffers with), donating profits from sales (and since raising over £4000) to Fibromyalgia Action UK, for research into this cruel disease.
I am currently writing my 1st album and I am looking for opportunities to raise further funds to complete this.
I am available for live performances and session work to enable me to continue my journey.
