DuoFolkAcoustic

Acoustic piano and vocal music created from my life experience and dreams. Folky, quirky and truthful lyrics accompanied by celtic chordal ballads. I sing my stories in the hopes that you can relate to them.

Biography

I usually play alone but I also enjoy playing in a band. I usually play my own original music and arrange it for strings and piano. 

Influences - It all started with the Phantom of the Opera when I was a child and then I moved onto Andrea Boccelli, Tori Amos, Josh Groban, George, Kate Bush and Regina Spector. Meatloaf has probably inspired some of my power ballad writing and Enya and Michael Nyman for the solo piano pieces I have written.

Set List

I have written about 70 songs and perform different variations of those songs at each gig. I like to play for two 45min sets.
