Biography: I’m a guitarist, bassist, drummer, and producer from Glastonbury, Somerset. My main musical interests are all things funky and I currently reside in a ska-punk band called Duvet. Over the years I have played in many musical projects ranging from a 3 piece rock trio to a 24 piece jazz swing band! I studied music at GCSE, BTEC, A Level, and degree level so consider myself to be pretty well educated when it comes to music! I have had the opportunity to support some great acts in Leeds, and to play some of its most prolific venues such as Brudenell, Verve, and The Lending Room. I have worked with bands of all different genres and am always excited to explore new musical opportunities.
