Professional musician and teacher
I have been performing as a guitarist in various capacities for 30 years.
From entirely self-taught beginnings (and a first public performance in a Margate hotel, aged 10) I worked my way up, playing with many covers and tribute bands in clubs and at private functions all over London and the UK, and in Holland, Belgium and Germany.
It has been a varied and always interesting career; from supporting Paul Young in front of a 20,000-strong crowd, to intimate jazz performances for an audience of 20, every performance has been a new and different experience.
Recently I’ve been performing with renowned Indian classical vocalist Swati Natekar, who had great chart success with “American Dream” by Jakatta, and the platinum-selling Nitin Sawhney produced album “Beyond Skin”. Along with her fusion band I have performed at The Royal Festival Hall, Manchester’s famous The Hole in the Wall venue, and The O2 in London.
In 2006 I formed an acoustic trio of two guitars and cello called My Favourite Strings where we perform at many private functions.
