lead/rhythm guitarIST

I picked up the guitar at around age 15. I’d seen Donnie playing with his school band - it blew my mind and I knew then what I wanted to do.

 

Scarlet City was later founded and after a few great years disbanded. After returning from university I was easily persuaded by the boys to slot into deVIence. I’d seen and heard them a few times, and it was a privilege to be asked.

 

I take my inspiration from a wide range of guitar players - from James Taylor to James Hetfield. Donnie is still a major inspiration and to have the old core of Scarlet City back together again and the riffs flowing is a terrific feeling.
