I started to learn the guitar when I went up to senior school and although I was quite interested in stuff like maths and geography I always guessed that music would play a significant part in my life.

After a few school bands I managed to pick up some session work and the occasional paid gig doing cover versions. I enjoy playing both acoustic and electric guitar.

I've seen a lot more of the world since I joined the band. I like the way Nigel's wide experience of travel is brought into the subject matter of our songs wihtout losing the essential Englishness of the group.

I also like the way our material stretches me to develop my skills as a guitarist and makes me draw on a variety of styles to create the signature sound of Sharp Practise.
