I am an experienced professional singer and guitarist based in Salford. I've been performing and teaching full time for 20 years. I was based in the French alps for much of this time and have worked in places as diverse as Scandinavia, Greece, Bahrain, Italy and the Canary Islands but am now enjoying being back home!
I am available as a solo act, singing classics from the last 50 years and accompanying myself on guitar, usually using a loop pedal to add a live backing track. I play from a list of several hundred songs and try to play requested songs wherever possible. I am equally at home with a subtle quiet set or a showstopping dancefloor filling party set.
I also play in a duo with Claire Palmer, a fantastic singer: together we do a mix of pop material like Sia and Rhianna and soulful songs like Aretha and Tina Turner, plus some country and rock stuff too.
There's our "power trio" the JD3, doing Stereophonics, Strokes, Green Day and other alternative rock, with some more classic songs from Beatles and Free and some pop too.
Finally I play with a full five piece function band the Vinyl Kings, with a more diverse party set from Tears For Fears and Simple Minds to Luther Vandross via INXS and Guns'n'Roses.
I have played around 50 weddings and numerous other parties with a variety of bands over the years and have a full understanding of all the elements necessary to provide excellent entertainment for any occasion!
