Whose records are in your collection...?
Blondie, Robbie Williams, The Corrs, Moloko, Toploader, The Doors, Kraftwerk.

And what about you, what do you like and what are your aspirations...?

I just love music, any kind of music, and Spinal Tap's Nigel Tufnell. I want to be happy and healthy and playing music. In my wildest dreams I'd love to play alongside an orchestra and also gig at Glastonbury.
I'd also like to set up a workshop for other musicians and help them.

What would you say are the best and worst things about being based in Devon..?
Devon is beautiful, atmospheric and a lovely place to live. With the invention of the internetno musician needs to be cut off from the chances of furthering their career, especially with MP3 technology.

Does the track you've chosen to demo sum up your musical style...?

I have a diverse style, I write and compose dance, pop, blues and indie... anything really!!
I hope you like the song.
