I have always had a passion for music. I am a Guitarist/Singer/ Songwriter. My inlfuences range from Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bad Company to The Eagles, Brad Paisley and various other artists. Ive played in several bands over the years. One of those bands being Straight Shooter, a Bad Company Tribute Band. It was during this time that I had the privelage of performing with Simon Kirke, original drummer and founding member of Free and Bad Company, on several occasions. After hearing some of my original material, Simon encouraged and supported me in my efforts in becoming a solo artist. Do You Believe? is the 1st track we recorded together at his studio.
