I started out my music career as a chorister at Dunblane Cathedral aged 7 and as a child sung in Kings and St Johns colleges in Cambridge, York minster and as a soloist with the RNSO in the Faure Requiem. I attended the Music School of Scotland at high school and there I started my first band, a Ben Folds Five tribute band and I also started learning about recording music.
I started songwriting at the age of 18 and formed a band around them called the strawberries who had reasonable success on the Glasgow circuit of which the highlight was supporting Silversun Pickups on their first gig in Scotland. A year ago I started my current band Turning Plates, with a more serious aim to make a career out of music. In addition to writing music for myself I recently undertook the job of writing two comic songs for a short film entitled “Testosterzone” a mockumentery about a boy band for the group “Who is Jean” who were delighted with the lyrics, music and recording quality.
