about

"I absolutely love my work and I am very fortunate to say that I get to play my guitar and sing for a living! I am self taught and play guitar, drums and bass guitar. I have been playing music since college days and have played in a number of different bands over the years including tribute bands, function bands and original material bands.

 

With the support of my family and friends I have been able to really flourish, doing around 200 gigs a year. I have been a full-time musician since March 2014 and love every minute of it. My previous work in marketing has given me a solid foundation to run my own business from." 

"My sound is based on electro-acoustic guitar, bass guitar, soulful vocals and beatboxing / percussion and with the use of a loop pedal I can succinctly create a live full-band sound!

 

I am equally at home playing background music as I am providing main entertainment to get the dancefloor filled or somewhere in between the two. And I use the highest quality equipment to deliver a great sound in anything from an intimate venue to a large room or outdoor setting.

 

When it comes to my music, I play a wide range of well known covers and enjoy getting into a song and recreating the feel and vibe of that type of music.

 

This picture was taken at my weekly live lounge residency in Congerstone. It's a really relaxed atmosphere with live music all night long and the odd special guest dropping in from time to time."

"I have been lucky enough to play a wide range of gigs including store launches all over the UK, outdoor shows, weddings, parties and public events such as the Leicester light switch on to over 20,000 people. I also run open mic nights which are great for networking with other musicians and also provide a platform for new musicians to play in a live environment and hone their skills.

I am always up for a challenge and love playing live. Every gig is different and I get a lot of variety in what I do - be it a different venue or special occassion. I get a buzz out of going the extra mile for customers so it's great when they want a personalised service because that way I can deliver a service unique to them."
