In 2003 my interest started with music, I joined Youth Jazz & Big Bands as a saxophonist and ended up performing across the UK and Europe playing pieces like Chameleon, Street Life & Shining Star to name a few. 2005 was when I started working in the duo “Alternate Perceptions” performing as a saxophonist with the singer songwriter Si Cliff performing original material and covers across Northwest England at restaurants, pubs and private functions. 2007 I read Music at Salford University and found myself performing with Wedding Bands, Jazz Bands, Big Bands and in Theatre Shows across England, performing in shows such as "Rent" & "Westside Story" to name a couple. In 2008 I started composing for TV and film projects and “One on One” tuition around Manchester. Since graduating from University in 2010 I have been performing regularly with Wedding Bands, Original & Tribute Acts, and working as a session musician for styles from Drum & Bass to Jazz across the UK and am currently working as a freelance contractor for other bands and as the director of "Rusty Keys"
