A bit about me 😁

New York, Washington, Baltimore

BIO

I was born in the Victoria Infirmary Glasgow, Scotland.

I have been a resort concert act in Swiss ski resorts, community halls, and hotels in Londons west end. I perform lyric based song with a bit of chat. I took classical voice lessons for three years with Lidea De Rosa, and piano with Jim McDowall in Glasgow

 

I dream music, probably because my subconscious is exposed a lot, I then take the melodies and shape song structures and evolve them. I love the process.

 

My influences include: Bob Dylan, Miles Davis, Billy Joel, Mahler, Frank Sinatra, Pavarotti, Elton John, and of course The Beatles.

My favourite is Billy Joel,

my second favourite is The Beatles

I like to connect with people with my art. But I do not see myself as someone who is paid to entertain.

I’m paid to let people watch and share in, if they choose, my therapy session at the piano.

 

I prefer performing story songs*. 

My favourite is Billy Joel, my second favourites are The Beatles and Prince, and I do a little bit of my own and some others for variety (Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan and some light Opera- see song menu) - and I have written book on performance.

I am currently doing the rounds for my book promotion. I will be making the same concert / performances that I usually do, just mentioning that I have a book published and hopefully selling a few copies at the shows.

*STORY SONGS

e.g.: Hotel California, Tangled Up in Blue, Shelter From the Storm, The Wind Beneath My Wings, The Gambler, Tiny Dancer, Rocket Man, Jailhouse Rock, Mr Bojangles, My Way, One For the Road, When I'm 64, Norwegian Wood, My Life, A Day in The Life, The Fool On The Hill, Goodnight Saigon, Piano Man, I Go To Extremes, Scenes from an Italian Restaurant, Minnie The Moocher, Mary Poppins, Suzanne, PLUS a couple of my own (which sometimes go down the best of all).
