'The best thing about being a musician
is that every day is different to the last and every gig takes me to a new place. I feel really lucky to get about in life spending my time playing great music with really talented and creative folk while we explore new cities and venues.
From festivals and theatres , concert halls and cathedrals, galleries and bars, i's always a pleasure to be in a new space to make music and be part of the history of that venue.
I love being a cog in the wheel. It's all part of the job and that job is just my favourite!'
