ABOUT

Following my successful music career forged over 10 years whilst resident in my hometown in country Zimbabwe, I have been resident in the UK now for 15 years. During this time I have started a number of successful business and musical projects here in the UK which now afford me the opportunity to further pursue my greatest passion of music and performing. Here's to hoping you can join me on my journey and the next exciting chapter.

Influences

Heavilly influenced by the pure and traditional sounds from my roots in music laid down in Zimbabwe and following my success as an artist over there, I have also become a huge fan and a good friend of leading Zimbabwean artists Oliver Mtukudzi, Thomas Mapfumo & Alick Macheso. ln addition to my love of the sounds of traditional African music I also enjoy listening to and playing a wide range of musical styles especially country music and reggae.

Members Of Band

Together with my Partner who plays Bass and my other good friend band members who mainly sing and dance, we are now in search of two highly talented guitarists, a keyboardist, a Drummer, percussionist, and ideally a proficient Mbira player to enable us to begin to perform my songs that have enabled myself and previous band members a very prominent status in the Zimbabwean Music scene and many thousands of views on Youtube. Further coaching and tuition for the right musicians is also available locally to me from one of my best friends and exceptionaly talented multi instrumentalist and teacher who I have worked with for many years and knows my music and how to play it better than almost anyone.

EQUIPMENT

We currently own a full PA System, Bass and Electric guitars, amps and an electronic drum kit and have the backing to expand on this as required.
