I was born in Basildon, Essex back in 1980 - I am the youngest of three children, blessed with the two best brothers anyone could ask for. I had the most wonderful upbringing with the hardest working dad and the most perfect mum.
I am still based in Essex with my beautiful fiancee.
have directed the Basildon Junior Schools Music Festival for the past 3 years and I have been the resident MD for the Chelmsford Festival for the past 10 years - this involves 1000 children singing their hearts out....
At 18, I was approached by my music teacher who asked if I would come and sing with his Function band at weekends - a great opportunity which I snapped up! 'Sunset Boulevard' was a typical Function band, playing all the standards for Weddings, parties etc.
As the band began to fold, my music teacher, now very good friend, John Stevenson asked if I wanted to be in a duo with him, so 'It takes Two' was formed in 2000. We worked up until the end of 2002 as I had now met Nikky Napier who asked me if I would like to join 'Calico'.
