Next Gig: 7pm Friday 21st Sept,  The Bistro @ Lympne Castle 

Hello!

Thanks for clicking,

 

I'm a singer/songwriter and acoustic covers artist based in Faversham, Kent. Have a look around and see some footage and pics from previous dates and sessions.  I welcome your comments, enquiries (and bookings!)  I am equally at home playing intimate restaurant gigs,  sing-along pub gigs and/or private parties and weddings.  Please use the contact form to get in touch...

I try to gig a few times a month.  My gig gallery features several pictures from the last couple of years both promo and live.  Have a look around...
