tailored live music 

I've been a full-time live musician since March 2014 and have done somewhere in the region of 1000 gigs since then, averaging around 175 gigs a year for the last 6 years!


I've been far and wide throughout that time and am always learning new tunes and inventive ways of playing them to keep audiences entertained - whether it be chilled background music or a party atmosphere.

Take a look at my repertoire below for some examples and there's some videos there too so you can see me in action. I'm always happy to learn new songs so if your favourite isn't there, send me a request!
