I am available for gigs locally and sometimes farther afield – or even IN a field! From campfires to festivals, small clubs to larger venues, I will bring a warm and easy unity with original singalong songs that you can’t help joining in with.

A Little History
From starting out playing double bass in orchestras, I gained a Performance Arts degree at Middlesex University, where I found, and began carving my niche in musical comedy.
In the ’90s you could find me performing comedy songs solo as part of my set as a stand-up on the London’s comedy circuit, or at Glastonbury as the double bassist for the band “The Wise Wound”, which played numerous festivals, pubs and clubs.
Spanning the millennium I was one half of a musical comedy duo with Mark Bowden (now a well known body language expert ).
I have co-run many comedy workshops with comedian Tony Allen and taught comedy on a few university degree courses, and provided live improvisational music for Physical Theatre and Commedia classes at Middlesex University.
In 2012 I discovered FAWM.org – February Album Writing Month – an online global community of songwriters and the key to unlocking my songwriting at that time, when I had felt stuck and that my gigs only contained old songs. Most of my songs are written for that and its sister challenge 50/90. More on those in a post soon!
