I spent ten years in Earl Green's blues band and enjoyed some success - nomination for best British Blues Band and played all over the country and some international festivals. Have included some links of me playing with Earl and some tracks from the Live at Bronte Blues CD that feature my playing. I am the guy stage left doing the breaks.
Blues is my first love I really love R&B and funk and also folk, bluegrass and country music. One of my favourite bands is Little Feat and Lowell George is someone else whose slide style I emulate along with people like Duane Allman and Ry Cooder. I am a versatile player and hope I am easy to work with too and I have my own transport.
Have included some recent clips of me accompanying Stevie Tate doing pop tunes like Treasure and Turning Tables and also playing folk band called A Grande Scheme too as some examples of my acoustic playing.
