From the age of seven I wanted to write songs as my dad and I spent a lot of time listening to and discussing them, because my family loved songs and because my mum would play requests on the piano by ear, which seemed magical to me. I come from a big family of music lovers. Later I wanted to travel and write songs about different people and places. Then as time went by I decided I wanted to write about feelings of love and loss. After that I started working with schools and communities so I wrote about different subjects, telling stories and encouraging learning.
back in the nineties and early two thousands I started my career as a singer songwriter, gained publishing and record deals, toured. performed regularly, formed bands and worked full time on my solo career, but I soon realised I'd need to work in a variety of musical ways if I was to be inspired and survive as a writer and performer.
Having spent seventeen years gigging pretty much non stop, i ran out of steam for a while. I left london and headed to The Lake District. Since then I've worked with many artists and communities and continued songwriting. This has given me the inspiration to explore new ideas .
I'm now recording the songs I've been writing over the last decade and more In the hope that they're worth a listen. So if you’ve found my music and this site then thank you. I hope you enjoy the songs. You are welcome
