Q. How long have you been playing for?
A. I've been playing guitar for around 20 years off and on now.
Q. Why did you want to get into performing?
A. I've been in bands when I was younger, and I've also performed in other areas before, this is real fun for me, it always has been.
Q. What types of music do you listen to?
A. At the moment I am really into James Taylor, Neil Young and Jack Johnson, plus I love anything that sounds good acoustically and live. I also like doing covers of songs you wouldn't normally expect to hear done acoustically, for example, I've just learnt a cover version of Rhianna's Umbrella, is sounds pretty impressive acoustically.
Q. Is performing a full time thing
A. No. I have a full time profession, I entertain as a hobby but at a professional level, and that makes it even more enjoyable.
Q. What type of gigs have you been doing recently?
A. Recently I've been doing lots of weddings and birthdays. I prefer these to pub work as they are more personal.
Q. Do you DJ also?
A. Yes, I have all the equipment for DJing, so I often find a few sets of acoustic followed up by some DJ'd tunes for dancing is very popular.
