I am a songwriter, musician, singer and performer.
When playing under my own name I am a leading UK folk singer of original self-penned songs.
My story telling style makes me ideal for folk clubs, folk festivals, house gigs, commemorative events, campaign nights, conferences, and social history events.
I also do restaurant and covers work, delivering laid back versions of popular songs that creates the perfect class and ambience for your establishment.
I am an experienced business mentor, and I have occupied most roles within the music industry from musician, promoter, festival organiser through to running my own record label.
I love to use my experience and skills to help other musicians like you find a path to where you want to be in your musical career.
I have an extensive network, and lots of experience to guide you with and help you reach your goals as a musician and performer.
Songwriting Courses & Workshops
I am a critically acclaimed songwriter and have developed songwriting courses and workshops to share how I write.
They are a great addition to a festival booking. They are also a fantastic way of teaching people to express themselves, or as a novel approach to professional team building.
Songwriting workshops are also a thoughtful, engaging way of getting groups to work with a particular issue or topic.
My standard price is £150 per night.
My standard fee for my original folk work is £350.
However, I also do a discounted price for certain smaller promoters, house gig organisers and others that I particularly want to play for.
So even if £350 is too much for you, get in touch anyhow as there’s a chance you qualify for the discount which is significantly lower.
My standard fee is £35 per hour for music mentoring.
Fortnightly or monthly sessions are recommended depending on your goals.
This gives you enough time to reflect and act on the outcomes of each session while staying affordable for you.
