Musical Biography
I was heavily into Hip Hop in the late 80's but started to play alto saxophone as soon as I heard the first few notes from a Bird LP. I played in various bands in various styles including Temple Twist a covers band whom I can safely mention this as not many people would have come to watch! Also by osmosis I took on the role of lead singer in a band called Bone Structure. We performed in West London and the Home Counties and had original material played on the radio. The style went from a kind of Acid Jazz sound turning into Rock/Pop outfit. I joined the Guv'nors during this period after featuring on ‘A Funky Spanking of The Blues' as backing vocalist, as a member of the horn section with Sue Hutchinson on trumpet. After moving to North London I completed a Degree in Music (Jazz Studies). I studied under members of Loose Tubes including Eddie Parker, Chris Batchelor and Stuart Hall and graduated in 2000. I currently teach music in a secondary school in Kent after completing a PGCE in Music and continue to play with the Guv'nors.
