I grew up in a musical family on the island of Anglesey, North Wales. At the age of 5, I began piano lessons and picked up the drums at about 6 years old. Bass, guitar and vocals all followed in my teens and I've worked as a professional multi-instrumentalist, writer, producer and arranger ever since. My early musical experiences consisted of playing in brass bands, orchestras and Jazz ensembles along with various rock and pop bands at school. I considered drums to be my first instrument up until the age of 22 and played for various artists in Wales. In 2003, I competed in the Guitar Center 'Drum Off' (but was disqualified after a number of rounds for being British!). Work as a bass player became more regular as a result of moving to London in my early twenties. I have recently found myself working more and more often as a keyboard player too. My general musical goals revolve around writing and producing for artists I'm inspired by and feel I have a musical connection with.
