Welcome to my website, I’m an acoustic singer songwriter based in Gloucester, UK.
I’ve been playing guitar since I was 16 years old, and started my first band at university. Since those early days I’ve performed in pubs, clubs, and at private events such as birthday parties and weddings. I’ve taken professional singing lessons and I’m qualified to the highest level of grade 8 in acoustic guitar, and have been teaching all styles of guitar in Gloucester since 2008.
I grew up in the 90’s and 00’s when for me Britpop, alternative rock and grunge ruled the airwaves. I’ve always been interested in anything with a guitar in it, and my tastes have mellowed and diversified as I’ve got older. Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Neil Young and Nick Drake are big influences on my style, and I perform many contemporary songs by artists such as Ed Sheeran, James Bay, George Ezra, Ryan Adams and John Mayer. I like to play a mix of fingerstyle and percussive songs, alongside more strummy sing-along numbers. Every now and then I’ll get out my loop pedal and go for that big band sound – very fun!
I’m working on an EP of original songs at the moment. I’ve also put out an Album and two EPs with my originals band The Drawing of the Three.
