Biography

This guitarist started playing the guitar at the age of 15 and his early influences include Clapton & bands ranging from Huey Lewis to Bon Jovi and Kiss. His more recent influences have ranged from Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Paul Gilbert and Jennifer Battern to John Williams, Adrian Legg and Albert Lee.
He took lessons for around 8 months mainly reading music & folk/country basicsand then moved to rock guitar lessons for around one year. His interests then expanded to other styles - Classical, Funk, Jazz and Heavy Metal.

He practiced daily for at least 6 hours and soon improved his skills and joined his first group at 18 years old and played a few pub gigs doing cover tunes. He then started teaching after 3 years - whilst also developing his own skill playing in various local bands followed by joining the newly-formed group "Goodfellas" and played with top quality musicians for 5 years or so. During this time with "The Fellas", he formed a duo with the vocalist and played acoustic covers in various styles.

After taking singing lessons, he began performing solo gigs on an acoustic guitar, also playing at various functions with a classical guitar. In 1996/97 he entered the "National Guitarist of the Year" competition run by "Guitarist" magazine (electric guitar) and reached the final six and played an original entry piece "Big Brother" at the Wembley Conference Centre at the National Music Show.
In 1998/99 he entered the "Acoustic Guitarist of the Year" competition and again reached the final 6 and played at the show. Although he didn't win he was told that no one had ever reached finals of both categories and that it showed versatility. He is now pursuing a better career in music whilst writing his own material.
