Guitar / Vocals
I got my first guitar for Christmas when I was 5 years old and my first guitar teacher was one of the most inspiring people I ever met, shame I can't remember his name. I was 5 when I first performed on stage, singing Michael Jackson's 'You Are Not Alone' with my brother. That show was the first of many, and since then I've been lucky enough to travel around Europe playing at some of the most prestigious venues in the world.
I met our drummer Fred when I moved back to the UK and people have been mistaking us for brothers ever since. I've been playing and making music with him for many years and finally with The Soul Thieves we can take all of our aspirations and point them in the same direction.
