About Me

Originally from Wakefield, West Yorkshire, I have been playing guitar for around 19 years, first picking it up at the age of 12 and instantly falling in love. In 2005 I graduated from Salford University with a First Class Honours Degree in Popular Music and Recording. Since then I went on to become both head of guitar tuition at Life Music in Chester, as well as a free-lance professional record producer. I also teach in colleges in the Greater Manchester area.

I am currently vocalist, guitarist and songwriter for Manchester based Progressive Metal outfit Spires. We have so far released two full length albums (the latest on Eulogy Media) and an acoustic EP, both to widespread international critical acclaim.

I have played in bands all around England, and even into Europe since I was sixteen, playing in venues such as Manchester Academy, The Cavern in Liverpool and Bloodstock Festival in Derby. I listen to a wide range of music, from Metal and Rock right through to Jazz and Classical, and I believe a wide base of inspiration is essential to produce a well rounded player. It is my passion and enthusiasm for playing and writing that I believe will rub off on my students. After all, if its not fun for you, why bother!
