I came out of the Australian regular army a bit worse for wear. Constantly wondering what I was to do for the rest of my life, enter my talented musician/singer brother Freddie. He convinced me, I was a born entertainer.
How good was that? At that stage, I was a fair piano player, with a yearning desire to play guitar, and so I did. Following some sound advice, I joined a versatile band and performed with them for five great years. We played the fifties and sixties and a good mix of whatever was popular on air, plus, American country. I fell in love with the latter. The band experience developed my vocals, giving me a much broader singing range.
Floor shows, television and package shows allowed me to stay fulltime with my music. I was fortunate enough to hit the number one slot with my version of the Eddy Rabbit song “Room at the top of the stairs”. I have always been aware, that “one never stops learning the business”.
Over the past six years, I have developed a passion for song writing. I feel I have much to offer and to learn. It is an exciting and frustrating road to follow, but I intend to travel it.
