I'm a singer/songwriter with strong, bluesy vocals and am a confident live performer. Now teamed up with extremely talented guitarist Neil Bailey, percussionist Jack Carver and harmony vocalist Amy Bartlett (sometimes Eve Sapphire), we're booking gigs as MAGPIE22 and planning some new recordings and videos. We’re looking for a double bass player and a violinist, pref with backing vocals but not essential, to add another dimension to our sound.

Past Events

If I've seemed a bit quiet lately, it's because I've been coping with my lockdown blues by recording this new version of one of my favourite songs and creating this video. I've been missing my buddy, soulmate and co-writer Neil Bailey really badly, along with all the live fun we Magpies had planned. Anyway, please join me, and I hope it makes you smile.... SHARE!
