Hi everyone out there in Cyberspace!! I'm 52 years old (practically fossilised!), now living in beautiful rural Thailand.
I started singing from a very early age and first picked up a guitar at the age of 12. By the time I was fourteen I was playing the local pubs and clubs in the UK.
Went pro at the age of 24 - toured Norway, did a few stints in Germany and the Balearic Isles (Spain) and consider myself very lucky that people wanted to see me perform enough that I was able to make a living as a singer songwriter for the next 14 years touring the UK. Ok, so sometimes the people didn't have a choice - it was either me or nobody on the night but hey, the more they had to drink, the better I sounded and I always got away from my gigs alive - with my money - what more could I ask for??
I gave up the live work in 1998 and if I'm honest I can't sing for toffee now but I'm still a keen songwriter when I get the chance and always have a recording studio of some kind wherever I live .....like to keep things fairly simple as you've probably guessed if you've listened to my stuff - though I do come up with more complicated arrangements on the odd occasion.......currently experimenting with a Boss Micro BR 4 track - awesome machine for it's size - however, have just clocked the 8 track version - the BR80 so I think an upgrade is on the cards very shortly..........
One of my all time ambitions is to be able to perform one of my songs at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville - yeah, like that's ever gonna happen - think that boat sailed a long time ago!!
Anyhoo - hope you like my music and thank you so much for taking the time to stop by!
