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.
