Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'm an unstoppable Vocalist/Frontman, Songwriter, Backing Vocalist & Guitarist. It's been said; "you don't need a microphone with a voice as strong as that!"

As a child at 5 years of age, I started singing (both solo and choir) and acting in plays at School, Church/Sunday School and on stage in local halls. I started learning to play the guitar at age 14, then joined my first soul band as a vocalist a year later. Then joined a Glam Rock/pop band, then a blues band; and then an original/covers Funk band (based at one of Cambridge Universities) where we played at quite a number of their May Balls functions and other events. Throughout the years that followed, I took more to singing than playing the guitar as that's where my passion lies.
