Professional session musician, working full time playing, always looking for new and interesting projects to get involved with. Good stage presence combined with a genuine love for music which is evident in every performance

Have a wide array of experience, playing with both original acts as well as tribute and function bands. Own pro gear (Native Instruments, Mainstage, Logic, Roland) and have played in just about every type of venue, with particular experience at festivals and theatres.

I have my own transport and am happy to travel to wherever the work is

Have also been writing and producing for a number of years, both on my own and collaborating with other singers/musicians. Several songs well received on various radio stations and one or two tracks in the publishing stages at the moment.
