In 1983, my friend David Harries and I won a schools' road safety competition with our song "It's Better to Be Safe Than Sorry". Since then, whether it's pop, jazz or musical theatre, no-one can accuse me of shying away from a good tune!
in 2011 my love of story telling finally spilled over from lyrics into writing a full script. "Uglies Do Edinburgh" was my first musical, co-written with my pal Dereck Walker. You'll find information about it (now renamed "Here Come the Uglies") and my other musicals elsewhere on the site.
Trained at Wells Cathedral School and Queens' College Cambridge, I'm also a vocal specialist and experienced choir leader, running the Leicester Unitarians' Great Meeting Singers.
