Guitarist
Manchester
Guitarist/Keyboardist/Arranger

As a recent graduate of the Royal Northern College of Music I have a good grounding in the technical knowledge and understanding of music which has allowed me to gain a diverse portfolio of experience. I am a founding member and lead guitarist for the Manchester based alternative rock band Cosmo Calling, who have released 7 singles so far and amassed over 250,000 Spotify streams working with Scruff of the Neck Records. I was part of DJ Spoony's Garage Classical with the Ignition Orchestra that headlined the Friday night at Liverpool International Music Festival, playing guitar and keyboards with the project that then went on to sell out the Barbican Centre and Hammersmith Apollo in 2018, and the Royal Albert Hall in 2019.
