Bio:
As a child at 5-6 years of age, I started singing (both solo and choir) and acting in plays in Church/Sunday School, Primary School, and in local halls. I started learning to play the guitar at age 14, then joined my first soul band as a lead 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 because singing and being a Frontman is where I feel more at ease as an entertainer.
