Described as a Slide Stomp Blues Machine he has been nominated in the finals of the British Blues Awards eleven times in the last four years. Not one to rest on his laurels, his new album ‘The Macabre Blues’ was released on Halloween this year and has already been critically acclaimed by the worldwide blues music press.
