                                                 I was trained Classically on piano, spent a lot of my youth listening to some of the greatest keyboard players on earth, enjoyed touring the country in a transit van packed with gear and I've loved travelling the world with my work and great friends.

I also play Accordion (Yes I know all the jokes), a little guitar, a little bass and some drums. I can also played tuned percussion, but not to concert level...purely for recording. I sing a little, enjoy playing percussion and am in possession of some recorders and whistles, though these are only brought out for humour purposes.

I've toured playing keyboards and piano with various artists over the years, having worked with artists such as Elvis Costello, Chris de Burgh, Deep Purple, Mica Paris, Bonnie Tyler, Alfie Boe, Glenn Hughes and Bruce Dickinson, Lulu, Jon Lord, The Blow Monkeys, Lenny Henry and many more.

After working with Jon Lord,I was asked in 2014, to perform at the Royal Albert Hall for the 'Celebrating Jon Lord' concert, with Deep Purple, Rick Wakeman, Paul Weller, Bruce Dickinson, Glenn Hughes, 2 thirds of Whitesnake ( Bernie Marsden,Micky Moody, Neil Murray and Ian Paice), Steve Balsamo, Sandy Thoms and the Orion Orchestra..all conducted by maestro Paul Mann. What was originally meant to be one song for me to play on,  ended up with me playing most of the classical set of Jon's compositions on piano and one piece 'Durham Awakes' from his Durham Concerto on Hammond Organ. An event which I am really honoured to have been asked to perform.

The second set was the rock set, where I got to perform other songs including 'Burn' on Hammond and Moog...a song I've loved since I was a kid.

I continue to perform as Musical Director with Chris de Burgh and various other artists. I MD a few different shows including the BASF show in Ludwigshafen, Germany  every year for Publicwork where there are a collection of great acts from all walks of the entertainment industry.

 

I have designed sounds for Moog and Roland, and was involved on the team for the design of the Moog Little Phatty.

I have a great collections of keyboards and synthesisers, software and recording equipment

 

My journey through music has allowed me to meet some amazing musicians and people along the way.....

A journey that has given me the opportunity to travel the world and enjoy some of the most wonderful music imaginable.
