ABOUT

Tertiary qualified music teacher out of the industry but loves to make great music with good people. Seasoned performer, tutor, band leader, and session player.

Not in it for the money, just the chance to make music we all enjoy. I'm at my best in creative, soulful, yet lighthearted ensembles with a meaningful repertoire and musical respect for each other.

Will fit in any ensemble really, but the dream is a Motown band or duet with a singer/guitarist/keyboardist and simple rhythm backing with diverse, soulful repertoire in a chilled venue.
