Influences: Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Glen Campbell, Andrea Bocelli, Queen, Status Quo,

I worked in a number of leading recording studios during my time working for the BBC along with some regional studios that have come and gone. I have my own DAW based studio at home and write and record in various styles that I like. I am a professional member of PRS and BASCA.

Lead vocalist/guitarist with a pop band in the later 60's and signed to Phillips Records. Singles were released throughout the UK and Europe. I do have the ability to 'sound like' a number of well known vocalists (if I wish/it is required) and have a wide vocal range.

My musical appearances include live session band on many past Radio One Club Shows and recorded sessions for all popular BBC Radio One shows at that time such as Terry Wogan, Jimmy Young, Tony Blackburn etc., etc.

As lead vocalist I have supported and often shared main billing with many well known names from the past such as the Hollies, Searchers, Troggs, Tremeloes, Slade, Status Quo, Pretty Things, Moody Blues (with Denny Lane) and too many others to list here but quite extensive.

TV & Reality

September 2013 completed a new production for C4 that was shown early in 2014. I was a contributor and won my episode.

In 2000 I studied with the University of Plymouth and qualified as a teacher; I spent the bulk of the following years in prison (teaching actually with a specialist subject I.C.T.) a change of direction until I retired in 2012).

Up until 2000 my Film/TV appearances include Boon, Crossroads, Casualty and many films; too many that I can recall over the past years. These have all mainly been as a background artist playing Police Officers: Ambulance man: Gypsey even a Tramp.

My 'Walk On work' often required special skills.
