Not being the usual acoustic guitar folky-singer/songwriter type, his music moves from intimate and acoustic at one point to loud and edgy in the next, blurring the genres of singer/songwriter, Indie & Post Rock.

His recorded works include the 5 track E.P Glass Heart and the recently recorded album The Ghost of Summer Last both receiving good reviews in the local media and online e-zines. Sporadic gigs in his erstwhile home of Plymouth as well as Exeter, London and Oxford have gained him new fans over the past year.

A new single Swimming was released in early 2010 as an exclusive online only single available to his mailing list subscribers. If you are not on it already then join here
