I'm going to try to keep this brief! If you're interested in working together I'd be more than happy to expand.
I started playing Guitar at the age of 5, having teachers on and off and learning my favourite songs by ear.
I was in my first gigging band a the age of 13. We were called Misunderstood, we were representatives of Woodford Guitar School in Plymouth and played lots of gigs for various charities.
Throughout school, as most musicians do, I had various bands and projects. I have always loved playing in vastly different genres and while I was in school I was a member of various Metal, Rock, Funk and soul bands. Most notably I was part of a fusion band called Kosa when I was 18 (you can hear a track of ours on my profile).
When I was 16 I recorded an 8 track acoustic album of my own material and some covers all in one day at a local studio, as well as recording with one of my original bands Chaos Theory.
I quickly picked up a passion for recording music and with a digital 8 track recorder I wrote and recorded 100s of songs at home.
I also started gigging as a solo act around this time at various open mic nights which eventually lead to me being offered paid gigs.
I studied Music and Musicology at Plymouth University and got a 2:1. Of course, I was involved in lots of bands and recording projects there aswel. It was at Uni that I dedicated a lot of time to learning to play Drums and Bass. On my course there was lots of guitarists, but few Bass players and Drummers so that was a really good opportunity for me to learn on the job playing Drums and Bass for various bands and Uni performance projects.
After Uni I got my first job abroad working in Kos, Greece as the resident musician. After that I got a job as the guitarist in a cruise ship party band and worked two seperate residencies in Lanzarote which lead to me moving there.
Since then I have held residencies in various Bars and Clubs playing Guitar, Bass, Drums and Singing in bands and playing solo acoustic gigs.
After being in Lanzarote for 5 years I am now back in the UK, based in Kent, and ready to get playing!
