I was brought up in the North of England and started playing the piano at the age of 11. After studying music at college and sitting exams with the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music.My first job was working in a music shop in Newcastle upon Tyne.
At the age of 22 I became a professional musician and worked as a cabaret pianist and band member in a night club in Newcastle. I then travelled the UK working as a pianist with various acts and bands including touring with the Detroit Emmeralds.
My next job took me further afield and I travelled extensively all over Europe, entertaining British and American troops.
I returned to the UK and set up my own group touring around the country.
Throughout this period of my life my knowledge and love of music has continued to grow. Mastering classical piano became a frequent challenge and my desire to compose my own pieces grew strong.
Now I am at a time in life where reflecting is at the forefront of my thoughts. In an attempt to portray my reflection of some of my own personal life experiences I have been writing and composing my own music.
My Ultimate goal is to compose music for film and tv.
I hope you enjoy listening to my first album which will be released in July 2012 and welcome any feedback you care to give.
I hope my pieces inspire you into creating some of your own.
Happy composing and listening to you all.
