Background: I was born in Nottingham but my parents moved to Leicestershire when I was young and that's also where I am based,
Interests: I love music, guitars, anything car related, evening walks with my family, travel, cooking, building things, good comedy & golf. In fact, the last two often happen at the same time.
Musical experience: I first picked up a guitar when I was 15. I taught myself to play drums, guitar and sing and then looping around 2010.
Other jobs: Music was a hobby until I went solo and it became my full-time occupation in March 2014. Before that I have 7 years experience working in Marketing and a Business degree from Nottingham Trent University. I am really interested in business strategy and entrepreneurship and my background has been a really good foundation for being a full-time musician, especially for providing music for corporate events.
Gig highlights: I have played over 1200 gigs since 2014. From intimate weddings to 15k people at Abbey Park and everything in between.
Favourite music: I love all types of music and I am always adding to my setlist. I've also released an album on Spotify and iTunes. I'm particularly fond of 90's dance music and The Arctic Monkeys but I play a bit of everything and love a good request!
Gigging abroad: I have played destination weddings in Ibiza and France and I am looking forward to gigging in France again in 2023.
Other projects: I previously ran my own local radio show promoting the live music scene and I also had a weekly livestream which ran from March 2020 for 2 years. As well as gigging I also offer marketing services for local businesses.
