Profile Bio Text
He had planned to be a musician after he saw an older boy playing the electric guitar it inspired him to become one too.
He was in the army for four and a half years. He spent six months in Kosovo as part of the peace keeping force. He recorded his memories of his time in the army in `No Bravery, the closing track of his album, `Back To Bedlam`.
He attended Harrow, a large, well-known public school for boys. His music was never appreciated in school as it was too emotional for the teenage boys in his class. Despite these set backs, he continued to practice everyday.
He plays the Guitar and the Piano. He also writes all of his own lyrics and music.
