I'm 16 years old, I live in London, and I play guitar.

I've been playing since just after my 6th birthday, and I played my first gig four years ago, aged 7, at The Railway Hotel, Bromley.

 

Most of all I like playing rock music and heavy blues and bands like Guns n Roses, ACDC, Free, The Black Crowes, ZZ Top, Led Zeppelin, The Dead Daisies, The Black Keys, Foo Fighters, Bon Jovi and U2… and I love slide guitar too! 

 

I've been lucky enough to play with a number of amazingly talented local London bands and musicians of all ages, including The Little Devils, Jim McAllister, Rythme Futur, Sina and Emma Marie and Victoria K.

Particularly awesome stuff includes:

  • In Sept 2017 I was one of 3 young musicians who won the Performance Category of London GIGS 2017 busking competition, after competing against hundreds of other musicians aged 11-25 years

  • In Sept 2016 I was cast for Little Big Shots UK, to perform alongside Colorado singer Emma Marie. The episode was broadcast on Wed 5th Apr 2017 on ITV in the UK and is available on YouTube here.

  • From Mar-July 2016 I auditioned for the part of Katie the Bass Player in Andrew Lloyd Webber's London production of School of Rock The Musical. Even though I only made it to the last 8, I'm still including this in my list of most awesome experiences ever because it was SOOOO amazing an experience to go through, so... no hard feelings, Andrew.

  • In May 2015 I was invited to play with George Trebor and Rythme Futur at the London residence of US Ambassador Matthew Burzon.

  • In May 2013, after coming 2nd place at a talent show in Woolwich, London, I was asked to perform in The Painted Hall Greenwich for the Inauguration of The Mayor of Greenwich.

  • In February 2013 I performed at The O2 London with Lewisham Muisc Service's Junior Guitar Ensemble, at The Jack Petchey Gateway to Music Concert.

 

  • I was lead guitarist of kid rock band The Riff Pygmies until Aug 2014, when I left to concentrate on school work, busking and music recording projects. Over the previous three years the band played at dozens of festivals, open mic nights and outdoor events, including Lewisham Peoples Day in London, The Cray Festival and The Beaverwood Club.

 

  • In April 2015 I was interviewed by KRFC radio station in Colorado USA and my cover recordings have since played on radio stations around the world.

 

  • In Sept 2015 I received two offers of music scholarships to London secondary schools - for one of them I was ranked second place out of over 500 applicants who auditioned for music scholarships at the school. I turned them both down to go to my current local school!
