A little about me..

I have always taken inspiration from music that creates stories and images for the listener. My professional musical journey started In the 1990s as guitarist and co-writer for indie band  Assembly Communications with Nick Talbot (who went on to form Gravenhurst).  At the same time I was a drum and bass DJ and producer in the Bristol underground scene, performing regularly at venues like the iconic Lakota nightclub. I went on to combine both my passions for melodic, narrative song-writing with beats and rhythms of Drum and bass as  producer and guitarist for Barriokingdom, a live DnB band. After 10 years of being an integral part of the Bristol music scene , I felt the need to go solo and rediscover my own sound.  A 40th birthday present found me at Thomas Leeb's acoustic fingerstyle Bootcamp  in Austria and the pieces started to come together. Since then, I have immersed myself into the international fingerstyle scene and have refined my unique urban fingerstyle sound, drawing on the influences of my journey so far. 

I have played on both sides of the Atlantic and across Europe. I will be touring in late 2024 with my new album Passengers. (Out early 2024)
