Biography

This Leicestershire classical guitarist is available for weddings and functions and has been playing the guitar for over 18 years. He has spent the past 7 of those gigging and performing around the midlands from his base in Leicester. He has played numerous solo-residencies in many bars/restaurants and clubs; two of the longest were weekly residencies playing solo guitar which both lasted two years.

He has also played on 5-star cruise ships, in theatres and on live radio as well as a wealth of experience playing at corporate events, weddings and private functions. A self-contained, smart and professional player for any occasion, he moved to London to pursue a full time career in performing. As well as the traditional side of Classical/Spanish guitar, his repertoire also includes some more contemporary pieces such as Layla (Clapton), Yesterday (Beatles), Vincent (Donn McClean), Fly Me to the Moon (Sinatra), Merry Xmas Mr. Lawrence, The Mash theme tune (played in rag-time) and many more.

Apart from the smooth and well polished solo pieces, he can also utilize modern technology where appropriate, using a live-sampling pedal to record and loop live guitar to create new textures and add a more blues/jazzy edge if the situation requires.
