I have no released music. However, my tracks "What Money Can't Buy" and Down This Road" have received radio and streaming airplay.

Bio

I wrote songs for fun and personal relief, until i was convinced to enter a competition to support James Morrison at the Hall for Cornwall in Truro, and won. To my surprise, the 1500 strong crowd liked it, and i haven't stopped playing since then. The songs i write are honest and each one differs from the last. I play every song like it's the last time I'll ever play it.

My influences range from the pop-punk of my early teens, to the folk and blues a few years later, with a dash of Billy Joel, I'm not afraid to admit. You won't hear all of the influences in the music, but it's all there. In particular, Ray Lamontagne's ability to craft gold from the simplest of chords, John Martyn's legendary diversity, and Jason Mraz's wordplay have all played a huge part.

I find the selling myself part really difficult. I don't know what sets me apart from other artists. All I know is that when I play, people seem to listen.
