ABOUT

I’m a jazz pianist who has been playing for around 10 years. I’m looking for musicians who want to play for fun and develop their skills together. I like to gig from time to time in pubs, local festivals etc. I also sing jazz though I’m not necessarily looking to do that in a band right now. Before I got into jazz I had a classical background singing and playing violin (now rusty).
