ABOUT

Led an alt rock band through school and sixth form college (vocals, lead/rhythm guitar), culminating in performances at Manchester Academy 3 and The Factory before disbanding. Was the founding member of an indie folk band at Lancaster University (vocals, lead/rhythm guitar, mandolin), regularly playing venues around the city for three years.
I'm now 28 and, despite my best efforts, I haven't been able to get anything together. I'm now eager to get back into the swing of things.
