I can sing a wide range of musical styles. Classically trained at school, my first band experience was with 'The Mighty Pledge' in 1998. Aged 18, I joined the well established 9 piece band and sang 60's Motown and Stax soul covering artists like Otis Redding, The Temptations and Wilson Pickett. Two years running, we performed to a crowd 4000 strong at the Monmouth Festival. I sang for a few other bands in Monmouth over the next 4 years and I have since put together perform a solo act with backing tracks and have gradually over the years changed my sets to focus on swing and rat pack hits by artists like Louis Prima, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Nat King Cole. I currently sing at weddings, hotels and pubs and am trying to make a full time career of my singing!
