Over the years, I've accumulated 1000s of hours of session and broadcast experience working with the likes of BBC Wales Television, BBC National Orchestra Wales, BBC Radio Wales, BBC Wales Jazz Orchestra, BBC Radio 2 Big Band, BBC Radio 3, S4C, Welsh National Opera, National Chamber Orchestra of Wales, Welsh Jazz Orchestra, Presentable Television and a long list of other notable Independent TV and Media companies.

During the course of my career I've performed extensively throughout the UK, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Mexico, Canada and the Middle East playing alongside many well known artistes such as Charlotte Church, Michael Ball, Larry Adler, Bonnie Tyler, Sacha Distel, Peter Karrie, Bryn Terfel, Katherine Jenkins, David Soul, Leo Sayer, Toyah Wilcox, Roger Whittaker, Spike Milligan, Shakin' Stevens, Jeff Wayne (War Of The Worlds) and more recently, Only Men Aloud, the winners of BBC Television's 'Last Choir Standing'.

I was invited to join Max Boyce's band in 1989 and over time took on the role of Musical Director. During my time with Max, I've performed in hundreds of concerts, international tours and television programs including the sell out 'Max Boyce Down Under' concert broadcast from the Sydney Opera House Australia.

I can now be found back at my alma mater, The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff where Ive taught Jazz Piano since 1999.

A Blast From My Past!

An early TV session with the BBC Wales Big Band recorded at BBC Llandaff in the 1980's.. it's no wonder I've lost most of my hair and what little I have left has turned grey… mis-spent youth… Great days though :)
