Born on April Fools Day in 1967, I started my singing career some hours later! That seems to be my recollection - singing is something I have been doing and focussing on for as long as I can remember. I became a chorister at St. Paul's Cathedral when I was nine under Barry Rose. Life was both challenging and rewarding, and I was lucky enough to make several successful recordings, including the theme music for the TV drama, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Being honest, though, my real love was soccer, and I lived for the moment, twice a week when we would travel to South London for a hard fought physical game.
After St. Paul's I finished my education back in Cheshire, and then went on to the Royal Northern College of Music where I spent another five hard fought years. Life as a freelance singer after college has been very kind to me, but the chance to sing with The King's Singers is for me the ultimate job (especially for someone who is not a great fan of opera). I spend most of my time adapting to a demanding but extremely exciting way of life. With my "new" career, beautiful wife Helena and young sons William and Edward, I must be the luckiest man alive. Just one more dream to fulfil now - my first sports car!
