More Information

Hi, I was born in North Wales in Wrexham in the mid 50’s and was brought up on country music. In the 80’s I started singing semi-pro as part of a duo called “Gibson Country” and we performed in most of the country music clubs in and around North Wales. When work commitment forced the duo to disband, I then joined a Country band called “Sounds Country” when their lead singer/rhythm guitarist left, taking his place and we renamed the band “Silver Wings”. We played most of the holiday and caravan parks around the North Wales coastal area and clubs in and around Merseyside and Cheshire. I stayed with the band for about 2½ years before leaving to take up a solo professional career. I moved to Blackpool on the Lancashire coast and sang at many of the resorts hotels and clubs. Once in Blackpool, I changed my repertoire, adding a lot of new material to my act. This now gives me a much more varied selection of music and I can now cater for most people’s tastes, with a choice of music from classics, ballads, Irish, oldies, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, rock ‘n’ roll etc. and of course, still my favourite, country music. In 2003 I went to live in Spain and moved to a little fishing village called Sabinillas on the Costa Del Sol, performing in many of the bars, hotels and golf clubs in and around that area in the 2 year period I lived there. I also worked at the 5 star Lanzarote Beach Club in the Canary Islands back in the nineties. I make most of my own backing tracks, so I am continuously updating my repertoire and adding to my collection of tracks, which already totals over 350 tracks.
