I started off my professional life as a musician. I used to busk as a kid, then when I was at University I met Paul Heaton and we formed a band called The Housemartins.

After a few years of that, I took a break from music – retiring gracefully. This lasted approx 25 years – until Spring 2013 when I was invited into a garden shed to play a session. So I wrote 3 songs and played them with a couple of mates. Here is the ‘songs from the shed’ session.

During my musical retirement, I had the opportunity to write and produce quite a few songs for various childrens TV shows and broadcasters.

A couple of years ago I had fun writing some songs for a preschool children’s TV show called The Bopps.
