Music isn’t about fame and fortune or being on telly, nor can it be quantified:
some things are simply art for art’s sake
Having never felt the need to be current, follow a trend or fit in, I’m just getting on with my own gig; life’s a very short gig.
If you hail from Liverpool we’ve a saying, ‘You’ll either become a comedian, a footballer or a musician.’
Having lost my musical virginity to Elvis at the unfashionable age of ten, my next musical epiphany was at sixteen. Mesmerized by the spine-tingling songs of a motley crew of drop-out hippy Christians, I determined to possess that goose-bump magic too.
On my seventeen birthday, I joined a commune and was to spend the next ten years travelling the world with guitar in hand and like any self-respecting troubadour, sang for my daily bread and a place to rest my weary head. I’ve been singing the songs ever since.
As well as performing solo. you can also catch me performing with The Frantastics.
