BioIt all started in 1997 at the intimate 12 Bar Club in London. My first CD came out in 2000 (UK) & I recorded a solo session for John Peel that year. My first album was quietly released in 2002 (UK) & since then I've done a CD in Italy (2003), a compilation CD in the UK (2004), a CD recorded in Italy (2006) and a CD in 2009 (Spain) as well as various vinyl singles. I have 2 new albums planned for 2011/2012. I have toured in England, Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and China, where I recently celebrated my 100th solo performance.
