Bio

Began a classical training in piano and trumpet from an early age which I continued to past grade 8 ABRSM. Took a liking to jazz in my mid teens which I nurtured with self teaching and experience playing in different band settings. This has now become my main musical field and moreover main love. Around the same time as discovering jazz I started teaching myself guitar - and instrument which i am now more than competent with. I started playing guitar with rock in mind, more recently my main ventures with the guitar have been in blues music; tuis complementing the jazz. I have played in many different band settings as well as being a solo performer and composer. I have played in a regional orchestra and jazz big band both in Staffordshire, a church worship band there also, and have since set up my own piano trio/jazz quartet as a student in Bristol. I appreciate all music as a means to communicate emotion but find the best music is that which has some soul or passion... and naturally some jazzy flair!
