As a teenager he moved to Devon and drew great inspiration from the outdoors, travel and his relationship with the sea. Growing up in a musical family, he was surrounded by records by such greats as Bob Dylan, Nina Simone and John Martyn.
At the age of 21, having fallen in love with song-writing, he made the decision to become a full-time musician and after networking and performing his way across the UK, was signed to Island Records. His first album reached #7 on the UK charts.
