When and where were you born?

Wolverhampton sometime in the 60's (hush hush) :-)

When did you start to play?

I started singing professionally at the age of 14.

Tell us about some of your previous projects.

I have performed backing vocals for musicians such as Michael Buble, Martin Fry, Jason Donovan, Thelma Houston, Richard Derbyshire (Living in a Box), Tony Christie, Blue, Kim Sledge (Sister Sledge), Ultravox, Edwin Starr, and many others.  In addition I have solo releases with EMI/Sony/Logic, and dance hits with "Deconstruction", "Release", "Lies" and "Feel the Love".  I also wrote a song that reached the UK chart position no. 6 in 2005 for US Diva Kathy Brown with a song called "Stronger on my Own", oh the list goes on...  :-)

If you had to take one album to your desert island, what would it be and why?

I couldn't pick just an album.  Because my album would contain a lot of songs by many artists. But if I had to pick a song, it would be "Waiting in Vain" by Bob Marley, because it marks a part of my life that conjures up happy times and memories...innocence.

What gear do you tour with?

My voice and my very faithful in-ear monitors :-)  and a bit of slap is always good!  Not that I need it :-)

For vocals I use an AKG D7 microphone and Ultimate Ears UE11 in-ear monitors.

One obscure interesting fact about yourself.

Here's three, you decide!!!  I sang the theme tune for the game show "The Gladiators" in 90's.  My family won on Family Fortunes and Les Dennis asked me to sing live.  Also I was a live model for a Christian Dior range of tights and leggings.
