ABOUT ME


I am a singer songwriter from Godwin Beach, Queensland who writes lyrics based on the stories of life.


I have always had a passion for music and am self-taught in the areas of singing, guitar, drums, percussion and keyboard. I can’t read music and I can’t write music either, I have dyslexia so it gets confusing to me. What I can do is create tunes, lyrics and sing them.

I started writing songs shortly after I separated from my first wife. This was probably the most difficult time of my life; our children remained at home with me and music helped me to cope and heal.


I used to sit on the veranda with my neighbour Charlie, I taught him some basic chords and only a few months later he was playing them to me and I was developing tunes that created my songs.

It's a strange feeling when tunes jump around in your mind and flow from the guitar. Some of my songs were created in a few hours and some took years to build. I love to just pick up my guitar and start singing whatever is in my thoughts at the time.

Sometimes I am driving along when a saying comes to mind or I am having a conversation and just a few words of that will be the start of a song.

MY INSPIRATIONS


My Family are my inspiration, I now have a blended family with seven children, each of them inspire and amaze me in many ways.

Sometimes it is the tough parts of being a parent, never knowing if what you are doing is right or wrong but one thing I can say, I've always tried my best. They have all grown up to be amazing, with strengths and talents that I am very proud of and that continue to inspire me.

ANOTHER DAY

Making my album
My Dream was to make an album. I never thought it could actually come true however, I was inspired by other muso’s who said “you should do this”, by my wife who never gave up on the possibility and my kids who used to sing my songs around the house and at school and always say “you can do this”.


I didn’t realise how many songs I had until one day I counted them and found I had enough to make an album. My dream became a goal and then a reality when I met Rory O'Donnell. 

Rory is an amazing musician with tunes and tones that are beyond belief;  whatever I said he understood and finally my tunes were developed into songs. Along with Rory was Mark Paltridge(Sparky) who put in the beats;  whilst I knew what I wanted he perfected it. 

Sparky’s wife Bec  is a singer and she loved the songs so much that she did the back-up vocals.  I was very fortunate to be able to work with these professional musicians for the production of my album ‘Another Day’.
