I was also very into the musicals as I was getting a little older. I would constantly be watching and copying the likes of Annie, Oliver twist, Grease 1 & 2. I’d sometimes dance around the house singing “It’s A Hard Knock Life” then burst into the Dodger character from Oliver Twist singing “Consider Yourself”.


When I was around 10/11 years old, I auditioned to be in a pop group that was being advertised in the NE of England. The pop group was looking for 8 members, 4 boys and 4 girls. After the process of singing and dancing auditions, they couldn’t choose from 10 of us. The pop group went on to be called 2-2-Many! Pretty cool! This lasted a couple of years where we recorded some singles and performed at some venues around the UK. Not much really came of it and I was the first member to leave the band. Overall it was an amazing experience.


Going up into high school, I felt pressure of having to play boys sports such as football, rugby and boxing. The music took a back step for a little while. Going into year 10 & 11, I realised that doing music WAS actually cool and that it was something I loved, so I started playing guitar and joined the school band. We performed in some assemblies and achievement nights. Performing songs such as David Gray Babylon, Hey There Delilah Plain White T’s, Broken Strings James Morrison, Hallelujah, Stand By Me and many more.

Leaving school at 16, always looking a little older than I actually was, meant I could start playing little gigs of my own around the Newcastle Durham Sunderland area. Just me and my guitar started playing little pubs, restaurants, charity events, doing all I could. I loved it. Shaped me into the artist I am today.

Back in 2013/2014 I auditioned and appeared on the ITV Talent Show, The X Factor. Auditioning In 2013, I went all the way through to Bootcamp, singing for a chair in the six chair challenge, unfortunately not getting a chair and being sent home from Wembley Arena. I decided to go back the following year auditioning again in 2014. Reaching Bootcamp again, the dreaded six chair challenge, this time getting a chair. Chair number 4. All chairs had been taken. There was 13 boys in our category with one boy left to perform. I think we know what’s coming. The boy left to sing, Paul Akister, went on to take my chair and unfortunately again I was sent home from Wembley Arena. At least I can say I’ve performed at Wembley eh! That dreaded train journey home to confront and be around family and friends explaining I didn’t get through once again was heartbreaking. The experience was amazing and I met some great people who are now really good friends of mine! We move!


Appearing on TV and performing all over the UK and abroad left me with great opportunities which I’m very thankful for and I will never forget.


Moving on to 2017, a music management/entertainment agency ‘I Stage Group’ reached out to organise a meeting at the Hilton Hotel in Newcastle. A few weeks later I signed with them and have been with ISG ever since. The company have provided me the opportunity to gig up and down the UK and abroad doing something I love, whilst still chasing that dream to become a recognised original artist.


Throughout my career so far, I have been very lucky to win some great music awards. These include 2 x UBEAT MUSIC AWARDS for Most Original Cover for an Elvis classic, “Can’t Help Falling In Love” and Best Single for my original Song “Better Man”. On top of these, I’ve won 2 x National Entertainment Awards for Best Male Solo Artist 2020 & 2021. I have been nominated again this year for 2022.

On top of that, I've been asked to perform at this year‘s awards night as the current award winner.


over the years I’ve played some amazing venues around the UK, including 6 successful, sold out headline shows, here in my home city of Newcastle.


Venues I’ve played such as, O2 Academy Newcastle, Cluny 1 & 2 Newcastle, The Sage Gateshead, City Hall Newcastle. The Fed Gateshead. Rainton Arena Sunderland. Sands Centre Carlisle. Wembley Arena (XF Bootcamp). I also was lucky enough to tour the UK back in 2018 / 2019 as a support / opening act, getting to play some amazing theatres.


Some gigs have included supporting the likes of Dappy, Big Country, Hue & Cry, Toyah, Scouting For Girls, Matt Cardle, various X Factor finalists at Christmas Light switch ons, organised firework displays, festivals, etc.


Radio stations have also been supportive playing some of my music over the years. These include BBC Introducing, BBC Newcastle, Metro Radio, Pride Radio, Spark FM, NE1 FM, Nova Radio, Koast Radio, etc. Also including backing from some great stations over seas in the US / online stations etc.


I am currently working on more music, working with some amazing writers and producers, which will be ready for release in the summer 2022 / early 2023. I am really excited to share what I’ve been working on these last few months.


It would be great if you could support me and follow my social media platforms. Download and stream my music on all listening platforms.
