build a solid reputation as a dedicated Blues & Soul man. His love for downhome blues included the likes of Jimmy Reed, Snooky Pryor, J.B. Hutto &
Muddy Waters, not to mention some of the great soul blues artists like Johnnie
Taylor, Clay Hammond & Sam Cooke. After sometime he joined forces with the
like minded & wonderful 'Big
Joe Louis & His Blues Kings' and very quickly they became well known as
being one of the toughest blues teams around. Whilst paying his dues as Big
Joe's Harp player touring all over the world, he also featured as a vocalist and
soon became known as one of the U.K.'s finest and unusual blues singers and not
suprisingly began running his own band as well as playing with Big Joe and then
went on to win the 'Blueprint' magazine "Harp Player Of The Year"

commitments of both bands and decided to make his own way after a fabulous 12
year run with Big Joe.
