From an early age I have always been driven by the goal to achieve as much as I possibly could, during that same time my granddaddy was a huge influence in my life. He was obsessed with the blues coming from the Caribbean he was soaked in Calypso, Mento, Blues and Reggae.
I have been singing in various blues bands since the age of 20 building my confidence, listening and exploring different styles of blues whilst finding my own voice and style. I am now at the grand old age of 35 and have been running my own blues band projects for the last 6 years with my biggest achievement to date performing at the legendry Glastonbury Music Festival last year and being asked to sing again this year.
As a singer all thoughts and emotions have to be portrayed, I live and breathe the blues and always feel my childhood links when I sing it. Some of my main influences so far have been Muddy Waters, Albert King, BB King and Buddy Guy to name just a few! The dream is to make a living as a Blues Artist and to be able to contribute to having the blues listened to by modern ears so the next generation can keep it alive and growing.
