I have recorded two CDs in my time; the first - titled"Winterskin" (which I sold out of my guitar case from 98-2000 whilst travelling around Europe, and then "Tall Poppy", a self-titled debut for a band I worked with in the states for a year in 2001.



I started learning guitar when I was 14 (what is it about that age and guitar players?). Whilst subliminally absorbing Simon & Garfunkel & The Beatles via late night hifi sessions conducted by my Mother during my early childhood (bless her..), I slowly came to develop a musical hankering for the likes of Rickie Lee Jones, Fleetwood Mac, Crowded House, The Police, Ani Di Franco and Fiona Apple. I have always done well on a stage in a crowded venue via what most who have seen me, have termed as a raw honesty, and an almost self-deprecating 'style' in my performance. However, pre-performance nerves have always been somewhat of an issue for me, and my energy comes from feeling a packed house. As it stands, though, I'm not that great at playing to no energy in a nearly empty room, but pulling a crowd is always a relative test, in that I tend to lead a somewhat socially isolated existence, due to a slightly insular nature, but I guess that's what a publicist / agent is for. In the end, the songs I write will have to speak for themselves. In 1998 I played a Spiegel Marquee event for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and won a songwriting competition event there, sponsored by BBC.
