About

The feedback of people having a good time, singing, dancing and tapping their feet gives me enormous pleasure and satisfaction and that's what makes my job all the more enjoyable.

Since I began Piano lessons at the age of 6, I've gained vast experience as a professional musician/entertainer, playing venues in Scotland, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, Spain and all over the UK.

I've also had the privilege of playing in bands as a keyboard/vocalist and Musical director, working with well known names including the late great Johnny Cash, big band drummer Eric Delaney, Joe Pasquale, Roy Chubby Brown, Duncan Norvelle and Irish Singer Rose Marie.

I've performed at well over 250 Wedding's and events and recent clients include Heineken and Schlumberger.
Recent and current residencies include Gleneagles, The Grand Cafe Scotsman Hotel Edinburgh, Brewhemia Edinburgh, Badabing Edinburgh, The Living Room (Edinburgh and Glasgow) Gusto (Edinburgh) The Balmoral Hotel (Edinburgh) Corinthian (Glasgow)
