Learning to Let Go

Debut EP 'learning to Let Go' out now! Debut album due for release spring 2018

available from all good record stores and online at:


I was born and raised in Glasgow. I’ve been playing in bands and song writing for most of my life.

Growing up I loved listening to my Ma’s record collection: Roy Orbison and Elvis Presley, The New seekers and even a bit of Cliff Richard. All I wanted to do was play the guitar and sing; long before I actually could. I got a nylon strung guitar when I was about 15. Thirty quid from some mail order catalogue. That was it. I thought I was Jimi Hendrix.

I escaped to the Orkney Islands in the early nineties. This was somewhere completely different; an ancient, mystical, fairytale place. You could feel it in your bones. It saved my life and woke me up. I spent a good few years there.

I came back to the west of Scotland in the late nineties, and since then life has taken me on a few travels. At the moment I'm ensconsed in the south west of England. I spend time with my family. Get outside as much as I can. Stay off the internet as much as possible. Walk my dog on the beach. Read. Work. Play some music. That’s pretty much it. I like to keep it fairly simple. Keep a good head and remind myself that today matters.

‘Learning to let go’ is my first EP. My debut album is due for release in the spring of 2018.
