Bio

Born in 1991, I grew up most of my younger years in Preston, Lancashire before moving to a small fishing village on the South-West Coast of Scotland during Easter 2001 at the age of 10.

I have been into music all my life. This dates back to when I was around 5 years old, when I would record myself pretending to be the role of a DJ, introducing my favourite tracks which I recorded onto cassette for the car to play back over and over and over again. (I still have the cassette to this day!) As I look back now, I realise that that was the start of it all for me.
Because music was a passion and really took over from the whole sport hobbies that most my friends my age did, I began getting more interested in playing an instrument. I would attempt, yes attempt to play my mums violin, but soon realised the violin was not for me. A few months later I got a guitar for my birthday, I think it was my 8th Birthday at the time. I would hide away in my bedroom and strum away at the strings and try to come up with something, create a new song, something original.

I soon realised that I needed lessons, and undertook some at my Primary School I attended and feature in many assembly’s where I, along with others in the guitar class, would showcase what we had learnt for the other children and teachers. The performing ‘buddy’ was born!

During the time of moving to Scotland I didn’t have much interest in playing the guitar again due to moving and not having the passion I had for it once. Instead I began singing. Singing for me, was in the blood, I was at one with nature, something that I used to do even when living in England, performing all the musical songs to my family and friends.

It wasn’t until a karaoke session after the annual stars in their eyes concert that the village held every carnival week, that I began to perform to a larger audience. I got asked if I would sing Two out Of Three Ain’t Bad – nervously I attempted it. Everyone was quite shocked as at this time I was a quiet boy and they didn’t expect the voice I had to come out like it did. This lead me onto doing the summer show the year after where I performed another Meat Loaf classic; Paradise By The Dashboard Light, accompanied by a fellow female fan.

The summer performances lead me to getting a place in a band, in fact the same band my mother was in, and which for her 40th backed me on the same track I had performed the year before. This was held to raise money for a series of local charities, which on the night was very successful.

One thing lead to another and a friend who previously worked within the BBC, had a band at this time recording their first album at his home in the country and asked me if I would support them for their concert they were giving at a local venue as part of their Scottish Tour in May 2004. Later the band who I supported went international and got signed by Ear Candy Music, a record label which sold their albums world wide.

After a break and continuing with school work, I bought a Multi-track recorder and planned on recording a few tracks here and there. I gradually made contact with songwriters over the net and after a few months passing and recording a song called “Three Wishes”, a love ballad, I started work on my first debut album.

Six months down the line and having worked on new material, I had released a track called; “UMania!” which was written by a friend based in Cheshire and made it into the Unsigned Top20 on tourdates.co.uk.

Now 2 years on, I am currently working on the debut album. It’s an album that is taking its time but is set to be a mix of Country Pop/Rock, an album that will hopefully convey issues in everyday life via the deeply written lyrics. I may also add here, that the album will not just feature work written by myself, but by songwriters from across the globe; including Canada and Nashville.

Music is my passion and my life and currently at the age of 17, heading on 18, I have plans to work on the new album and start work with a new band and hopefully work on much more projects in the future.
