I am a singer-songwriter based in southern England. I’ve been lucky enough to perform in major slots at festivals such as Carfest South, The Vintage Nostalgia Festival, Hampshire’s Oktoberfest. Music is my passion, so when choosing my repertoire and writing my own music, it has to be perfect! I mainly find myself following the styles of funk, Blues, Soul and many more! Specialising in the genre of Indie singer-songwriter pop with elements of Modern Jazz and Electronica. I differ from many artists as I specialise in live looping which allows me to record multiple layers in front of a live audience and perform as more of a live producer and create the illusion of a full band when it’s just me on stage. It’s something you have to see to believe.
Come and join me for open mic and jammin sessions.
