Have been playing blues harp and guitar for several years. Am currently playing in a blues band called the Shaker Makers based in East Dulwich. As well as recording my own songs in Clapham. Am looking to equally ambitious young musicians to start rhythm & blues group in the style of Elmore James, Slim Harpo, Howlin Wolf, Jessie Hill, The Jelly Roll Kings, Little Walter etc
