Born Doncaster England and instinctively almost immediately became interested in pop music. Learned some music theory at school age 12 and made a miserable effort to play the tenor horn with the school band.
Picked up a guitar late teens after hearing 'Who's Next' and quickly started composing tunes. Collaborated with song writing partner Mick Huxley for several years and was prompted to continue after his death. Music has always been a way of letting light into my world and song writing helps me to try and make sense of the world around me. Home studio production has now become the main focus for my creative output. Not expecting to get rich but if one person can relate to the issues I write about then I have succeeded.

Although there have been many influences, I have mainly been influenced by music from the late sixties and early seventies from bands such as The Kinks and The Who. Great song writers such as Bob Dylan, David Bowie and Pete Townshend have also been an inspiration. However, my style remains unique and original. Primarily guitar based the songs are triggered from real life events or personal experiences in which I hope others can relate. Music being the universal language the songs are intended to connect and communicate with the listener on some level. Thanks for listening, please enjoy.
