Currently drummer, co-writer and guitarist with Red Box. Played with The Act in the 1980s and sang with Dream Academy on first two albums. Have been playing since the early Seventies. It's all about feel. Nothing else matters. Well, apart from a good song. Obviously.

I am available for recording sessions and can bring not only rhythm to your material but a whole raft of musical ideas, riffs, licks and motifs.
