I spent my early and formative years touring and travelling with seasoned professionals such as George Melly and John Chilton.
As pianist with George Melly and John Chilton's Feetwarmers for over 10 years, I toured extensively, both at home and abroad, playing over 250 theatre concerts a year.
Television and Radio
During that time we made numerous TV and Radio Performances (Noel's House Party, This is Your Life, The Lily Savage Show).
