Played regularly in the Bristol area for many years and also regularly in Italy more recently. One gig I'll always remember is a charity gig at the Farrington Inn in Somerset in 1997. People used to hearing the gentler, acoustic side of my music were blown away by me belting out rock and blues numbers!
I've been mainly inspired by artists who write great lyrics like Dylan, Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Al Stewart, Elvis Costello and of course The Beatles and The Kinks, two bands who, in my opinion, have never been surpassed in terms of marrying great tunes to great words. I was very disappointed a few years ago when, having purchased a ticket for a Ray Davies concert at Bristol's Colston Hall, I had to miss it because of illness!
