I was brought up in a small country town in New Zealand, a small town where there was always music around.

 My father played sax and loved the blues. My mother played guitar and sang in church every Sunday. My family was absorbed in music and got involved with a lot of heart and soul. There was always jamming at home, and as kids we were encouraged by the grown-ups to have a go, and get the feel for music.

I started playing in a home town pub band which played soul and funk. 

I moved across the ditch in 1979. I didn't get back into music until the late 80's, playing sax in a Blues Rock band on the North Shore of Sydney, but that didn't really go anywhere. 

 In 2004 I got the urge to start playing again. I always had an interest in playing delta blues so a new journey began.

In 2005 I moved to the beautiful Bega valley. In 2007 I bought a Resonator guitar, joined the Southern Valley Folk Club, and started jamming with musicians of different styles. That was a great learning experience. 

In 2015 I met up with the PBGB Family and was warmly welcomed to The Shed. 

The Shed has a good feel about it.


So here I am, at a new beginning.  Peace.
