"It takes 10 to 15 years to become an overnight success..."

 

'A week spent around a campfire will tell you more about a person than a decade spent living next door to them.'

'Rhythmic Soul-Singer Songwriter, Storytelling Poet, harmonica-playing, tap-dancing, Guitar picking, one-man-rhythmic-dance-band'


'Rhythmic storyteller, multi-instrumentalist,
…telling unpalatable truths about broken hearts…social injustice…in songs, that are percussive, bold, lyrical, deeply personal …and have an unexpected edge to them, accompanied by
spoons, harmonica, guitar, trombone and-tap-dancing shoes.'
