Hello! Thanks for visiting/stumbling across/being forced to look at my website! I am a singer/songwriter from Gloucester. I write songs, then sing them (wherever people will listen). I can usually be found with my Breedlove acoustic guitar (I may learn another instrument one day - I used to play piano, but I was really terrible) performing regularly around Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and other awesome places that have decent cider and a Nando's.
I've been very lucky to play some awesome gigs in the past few years. Highlights include sets at Barn On The Farm Festival in 2010, 2011 and 2013 (the best weekends of my entire life - so far), several gigs at Gloucester Guildhall (my favourite music venue ever!), jamming with Luke Concannon backstage at Newent Onion Fayre, and also supporting him and Jimmy Davis at The Prince Albert in Stroud.
Anyway, please feel free to have a look around, see where I'm playing, check out some photos, leave me a message or subscribe to the mailing list at the bottom of the website. If you like my music, please check out my stuff on iTunes or Spotify, then do one or all of the following: Share with your friends, play songs to your family, share on Facebook/Twitter, persuade local/national radio to play one of my songs, use my music for your company's phone hold music, set me as your ringtone, let Jools Holland know I want to perform on his show, play my EP loudly in your car so pedestrians can hear it (I'm not sure if I'm on Shazam yet, so you'll have to stop and tell them who I am). Most importantly, come along to a gig!
