Born in London John began noisily busking Delta Blues on it’s busy streets competing with the steady stream of packed buses and heavy congestion to sell home made albums and perform for change in front of shop windows. Moving then towards open-mic nights, galleries, pubs and eventually getting involved in burlesque clubs as a musical interlude between acts. From there an increased curiosity in different styles of music developed from Folk to Soul and Jazz while still developing and being fascinated by the Delta Blues style.

Along the way John met and played with wonderful musicians and often performs as a duo with the excellent Harmonica player Marco Farris.
