I come from a very musical family; it’s in our genes. I am a singer/ musician and notched up over 40 years experience entertaining audiences across the North West. Music was a constant soundtrack to family life and still is.
My musical tastes are wide-ranging, from rock, punk, metal to jazz and blues.
My absolute all-time favourites are Radiohead and Steve Harley.
A huge Radiohead fan since they started out in the 80s. I was once Thom Yorke’s pen pal and he invited me to meet him backstage at their gig in Blackpool in 1997.
Steve Harley also invited me onstage once to sing ‘Love Compared with You’ in Lytham, very impromptu and unrehearsed. So you could say I have been very lucky indeed.
