Hello Folks,

By far the most asked question at gigs and in interviews is: Who is your favourite blues artist?

It’s not a question I relish answering. It’s overwhelming to try and process a lifetime of inspiration by so many amazing artists. These artists have collectively formed my style.

Now that I have a place and the time to address the question I plan on letting you know what I’m listening to, what I’m watching and what songs I’m writing. There will also be a few stories thrown in.

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask!

The first time I heard blues music was on my small crystal radio when I was ten years old. I was listening to BBC radio in 1956 and I heard three songs by the piano player Memphis Slim. I didn’t know what it was but I was stricken, I can even remember the songs which were El Capitan, Four Walls and Going Down Slow.

Later, when I was a teenager I got to see Memphis Slim live at the Marquee Club in Soho, London, my home town.

More news soon!!!
