The About Bit
I’m a writer and songwriter based in the North Essex hills, near Cambridge UK.
Sometimes I can be found with a guitar in my hand, writing songs. It’s all about the songs.
Live, I perform solo, with Nick Blishen, and above all with the awesome THURSDAY'S BAND - a weird and wonderful combination of guitars and string section that can get so exciting I often forget to sing in the right place.
If you'd like a taster, there's a Spotify playlist for Thursday's Band HERE.
I’ve had that guitar in my hand since I was 12. I think I'm beginning to get the hang of it now.
I’m inclined to hop up on stage with anyone who’ll have me. Sky West
are an unpredictable cabal of good-natured men (and one woman) dedicated to giving new life to old music. I’ve performed occasionally with Daniel Nestlerode, Lizzie J Taylor, Ben Smith, John Meed, the late David Hardie, and Matti Stenroos. And just for good measure, I'm also part of the team at Royston Folk Club, looking after the Legendary ROYSTON FOLK CLUB Showcases. Don't be fooled by that word 'folk'. Nothing could be further from the truth.
'The English Guy Clark...'
(Emma Scarr, re-quoted by me with tongue firmly in cheek)
Sometimes I can also be found writing SCRIPTS for heritage projects,
business meetings, and other forms of communication.
