More About Me
After studying the Saxophone, I began playing in clubs with bands covering popular hits and, with a natural flair for improvisation and an individual style, progressed to bands playing original material.
In 1989, I joined up with two other brass players and auditioned for The Beautiful South We were taken on board and toured and recorded with them for some 20 years, whilst also maintaining our freedom as session musicians.
Other artists I have recorded with include Blammo, Jayne Hanna, Spiritualised, Super Furry Animals and Doctor John. I also write and arrange my own compositions. I am a member of the PRS and also PAMRA.
I am always keen to put something back into the profession I am passionate about and am concerned that the statistics for children learning to play instruments are very low.
I have a natural ability to teach music and have had great success in encouraging young musicians to progress.
