Bio

Hi, I am a songwriter from the UK, based near London. Having played in a band for over 10 years, I felt it was time to hang up my drum sticks. So, for the last 3 years I have been working in my studio, creating a number of new songs/lyrics and producing those ideas into ‘finished’ pieces. Though as Quincy reportedly said ‘it’s not that they are ever finished, they are just abandoned!’

I find it rewarding to write in many genres, so the songs range from jazz ballads to pop/rock, from chillout to MOR radio-friendly.

In 2006,the song ‘People’ was highly commended in a USA songwriting competition, and made the semis in the UK equivalent.

In 2007, I made the FINALS of the International Unisong Competition, with ‘There’s More To Life’ and 6 further songs made the semis in the UK Songwriting Competition.

Over the past two years I have been offered contracts from three publishing companies in the USA for a total of 14 songs. However sometimes you have to hold out for the right contract!
