About me

My beginnings

I have performed since a very young age being a member of the choir at junior school. I have vivid memories of singing “Kum Ba Yah” and my music teacher (and my inspiration) Miss Whitham being suitably impressed. I passed the audition and began what was to become one of the most memorable times in my life.

Some of the children in the choir joked about me joining the choir so that I was able to go on a trip to Alton Towers. For me, the sheer joy of performing in front of an audience gave me such a thrill and made me feel a part of something special and the choir was certainly that. We performed all over the North West from Martin Mere to Radio Lancashire on a number of occasions.

I had a friend who was out on the circuit who went by the name of ‘Big Gary’, he took me under his wing in the early days and showed me the ropes. I have a lot to thank Gary for and will always be eternally grateful. It wasn’t long before I was chomping at the bit to get my first gig under my belt when it came I can’t tell you how nervous I was, once it was done I never looked back!

Initially, I worked full-time alongside the singing but when the time was right, I left my job and set off on a journey that would take me to the other side of the world many times over.
