Born in Sydney NSW Australia, I picked up my first guitar when I was 16. My parents paid for some lessons and my love affair with the guitar began. Some school friends and I started a band and we played the Sydney pub circuit for some years under the band names 'Phase Boogey Band' and later 'Interface'. We became runners-up in the 'Battle of the Bands' in 1981, playing in the finals against bands called 'The Cockroaches' and 'The Little Heroes'. I started my solo career in 1995, working out of my home in Katoomba in The Blue Mountains, west of Sydney. I was performing at private parties and corporate functions, playing guitar and singing songs by artists like Pete Murray, Eagles, Pink Floyd, Crowded House, Cat Stevens, etc. In 2006 I moved to Queensland to live by the sea. This move was to be the most influential on my musical career. I started out playing around my town, playing the same style as I had in NSW. Then I met a Classical Guitarist and was encapsulated by the technique and sound of the classical guitar. I started playing my own Classical/Spanish Instrumental style and became inspired by my lifestyle and environment to write my own compositions. Since changing to this genre I have not looked back. I now play at local cafes, various corporate functions and local festivals. I decided to create this relaxation CD to capture a unique niche in the marketplace. I am presently writing more up-tempo compositions to record on my next CD, which will be much more the meantime I am enjoying my popularity as a live performer in my home town in Queensland.
