I was borne in Wolverhampton England in 1944. I had a happy childhood with an early interest in music. I loved to sing and perform as a child. I began drum lessons when I was twelve and was performing in a band at 15. I now live in Abbotsford British Columbia Canada with my wife Jessica.
My first claim to fame was in the 1960’s. If you were enjoying the music of the day and lived in the Midlands or the south of England you may remember a band called ‘Steve Bret and the Mavericks. We had our own TV show ‘For Teenagers Only’ featuring guests like ‘The Dave Clark Five’ and Denny Laine and the Diplomats’. In the band were Steve Bret, Johnny Millington, the now world famous jazz bass player Dave Holland and myself on the drums. I now live in British Columbia Canada where I play in the folk band ‘1066’, a blues band ‘Deception’ , A swing jazzband with me sing the standards and a nameless classic rock band. I co write music for a childrens theatre group called ‘Theatrix’ visit https://www.tradebit.com with my friend, childrens entertainer and educator, Mr.I. Visit https://www.tradebit.com
Together we also produce a series of childrens educational CDs called ‘Facts and Fun’. In the fun part of our CDs I take on the character of a crazy Englishman who’s always up to something silly. We recently wrote songs for a CD on teaching children how to multiply (soon to be DVD) calledGoogol Power. This particular effort won an INDIE, the juno equivalent for independent https://www.tradebit.comit https://www.tradebit.com
I share the same goals as Mr I. The desire to help create a peaceful world and I see doing that through our song writing and being active in writing letters to the newspapers on social issues
