Feeling a bit camera shy


Originally trained as a classical guitarist, an interest in songwriting lead me to spent six years as a singer/guitarist/songwriter with genre-bending-goodtime-world-music-jamborie, Whiskycats. After doing one album and countless gigs all around the country we dibanded in Feb 2010 and I spent the following year reinventing my music. I returned to my classical guitar roots whilst melding a Chet Bakeresque singing style with the early 70's British folk of Nick Drake and John Martyn. This resulted in a limited edition acoustic album - 'The Man With the Anvil Hat' - which was regarded by the MEN as "standout manc music debut of 2010". I am currently engaged in recording a full studio version of this album with producer Jim Spencer (Charlatans, New Order).
