As a kid his time was split between his native Liverpool and Florence, Italy, after his parents’ divorce. Liverpool has a musical heritage that is impossible to escape but it was during the summers, whilst devouring his Dad’s amazingly eclectic record collection , that his musical education began, taking in everything from Talking Heads and Penguin Cafe Orchestra to The Band and David Bowie.
He lost his twenties to bad decisions and train-wreck relationships and it was only after meeting his future wife, and then struggling through some kind of nervous breakdown, that he started to take songwriting seriously. They moved out of London into the “wilds” of the Cambridgeshire countryside and got into village life.
He has so far released three albums to wide acclaim.
He dances for money but only privately.
