.... abundant in musical talent and full of charm
"... came over and hit Devon by storm, bringing with them an evening constructed of a high quality songlist, abundant musical talent and charm" - Dee, Ryan's Bar - Torquay, England
Although I love performing before a live audience, I also relish the time I have to create new compositions. I try to find a balance between these two, as well as many other activities.
I am now residing in Shropshire, U.K for the time being. I am here performing shows across th U.K., ROI, and Europe. I am also working on writing and recording a new CD in the near future.
For the past 15 plus years, I've refined my technique and musicianship while taking it upon myself to grow as a musician and songwriter that all of the masters before me have successfully confronted. This has resulted in being very comfortable with and in front of audiences of all sizes.
Performing, composing, arranging, recording, & producing.
I can perform all my songs as a solo artists, in an acoustic style. I can also perform with just a lead player, such as a fiddler or guitarist. For events that require a fuller sound, I can bring a full band behind me.
Any of these formats are more than comfortable for me.
I was born in London, England, grew up in Calgary, Canada, and am currently living back in England. I am based in Oswestry, Shropshire but travel to perform in all the areas of the UK and beyond.
I started my musical journey at the age of 4, which is my first recollection of owning a guitar. Since that time until this day, I have had a guitar close by, although mostly putting music on hold while raising my family. Starting up again later in life, I had a stronger drive and more clear vision of what path I wanted to take with my music, and I continue on that path today.
Although I try to not label my music, I suppose it would be best described as Celtic-Folk inspired.
