I was taught classical piano from the age of 6 till I was twelve then I taught myself guitar and carried on learning the piano myself.
When I was 18 I was in a blues/rock band and we used to do local pubs. One thing I learnt then was, no matter how nervous you are going on stage, never have too much to drink before you do lol.
As I got older, my musical tastes grew wider so I started composing in may styles.
I have come so close to breaking into the music biz over the years but it always seemed to go wrong at the last min.
Now I just compose for fun and upload to a few platforms.
