"My first professional gig at age 16 was playing support for the great Jack Bruce in a packed, sweaty night club in Scotland - Jack was fronting a high powered, rocking 5 piece... Lord knows how we got the gig, I think the promoter was desperate haha. It was a small club so we all had to share the kitchen as a makeshift dressing room - quite an experience in itself. Our 20 minute set went down surprisingly well thankfully ie. we made it out alive, and the whole experience was seminal in defining my commitment to music.
I played all over Northern Germany with a 4 piece, moved back to Scotland and played with different bands and eclectic styles including, 70's rare groove, Washington Funk, Reggae, Pop rock, Indie Rock - you name it, the genre - I've played it, or at least given it a try..
Then in Australia - I played, recorded and toured with Aussie luminaries from the 70's & 80's ... - Black Sorrows, Mondo Rock, Australian Crawl, the Skyhooks, Chain...
to be honest I still don't get the Australian "Home" music scene - it seems like a 'Great Divide' between ultra cool contemporary and very staid baby boomer rock with a side of the best dance culture on the planet...
some of the world's best jazz, blues and concept music...
- it's a very strange but highly engaging microcosmic mix.
Recently I shared a studio with "The Veronicas" and "Small Mercies" in Brisbane, Australia.
My music has subsequently been Licensed on MTV shows in the U.S.A. , I have licensing deals currently in the U.K., India, Europe, America, South Korea & Japan...
