I have been a regular lecturer to BA and MA students teaching music management, royalty collection and copyright at The University of West London. Also for The Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford and at Metropolis Studios, London. I run The Insiders Guide to the Music Industry with Rita Campbell. www.theinsidersguide.co.uk. I’m a founding mentor at The Songwriting Academy. www.thesongwritingacademy.co.uk. I am also a mentor and judge for Busk in London through the Mayor of London. Amongst many things we judge buskers for spots on the London Underground and main railway stations, (you can blame me).
I have been a main board member of The British Academy of Composers and Authors (BASCA) for some years and was the Vice Chair of the Songwriters’ Executive. I have been an Ivor Novello Award judge during that time. I’m the UK V.P. of the Indie Music Channel based in Los Angeles. www.indiemusicchannel.com. I was made a member of Hollywood Elite Composers in Los Angeles last year, (go figure). www.hollywoodelitecomposers.com. A little while ago I was given the Freedom of the City of London. That makes me a Freeman of the City of London and yes, I am allowed to drive my sheep across London Bridge.

I am currently working with Louise Setara, Malo and represent and write with an amazing band from Nashville called Lost Hollow. My first musical career was songwriting for pop artists of the early 70’s such as New Seekers, Capricorn etc.

I left the industry in my early 20s and started a specialist printing company and also commercial property. When I sold the business I had a staff of over 25 people plus 5 salesmen.
In the early noughties I returned to music.

Since that time I have had my songs recorded by artists such as Lulu, Tina Turner, Billy Myers, Louise Setara, Lost Hollow, Steve Brookstein, Ricky Lee, Tammy Weis, German artists such as Kai Wingelfelder, Yvonne Catterfeld and Joana Zimmer and many more. My songs have been used in TV series such as CSI Las Vegas and Smallville as well as Xbox games.
