The emergence of Punk and New Wave in the late 1970's prompted him to learn to play guitar, write songs and form a band.
Playing in pubs and the university circuit he forged a path of songwriting and performing- gaining much experience along the way.
He has been influenced by a wide range of music : blues, soul, gospel and country are in his musical DNA.
Buck Owens ,Roy Buchanan , Muddy Waters , Clarence Gatemouth Brown ,Pee Wee Crayton , Aretha Franklin and Sister Rosetta Tharpe are all in there.
There is also a jazz and swing feel in there with Cab Calloway , Les Paul and Bobby Darin.
For vocal inspiration Perry Como and Bobby Darin are paramount.
In summary : if you like the smoothness of Bobby Darin with the blues shuffles of Howling Wolf and a little gospel, tinged with jazz overtones - this is for you - an all original genre!
Working in the recording industry selling equipment for many years would eventually bring him to the USA.
Now living in Memphis, he performs live every week - and still writes songs and releases albums.
He is planning a follow up book to “Writings-Volume One” (available on Amazon)
-an examination of his songwriting and song lyrics.
