Photo of Surrey based classical guitaristThis young and very talented guitarist studied Classical Guitar at the Royal College of Music under both Carlos Bonell and Gary Ryan achieving a Diploma of Higher Education. In 2001 he put his formal music studies on hold in order to join the 8-piece classical crossover group called ‘The Planets’ as lead guitarist playing classical, electric and flamenco guitars. After their debut concert at The Royal Festival Hall in London, they released their first album entitled ‘Classical Graffiti’ which shot immediately to number one in the UK classical charts where it remained for over 3 months selling over 200,000 records worldwide. Beyond UK shores, the group played in Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Germany, Paris, Monaco and the East Coast of America. They also toured with and supported rock legends ‘Deep Purple’ on the UK and Germany legs of their 2002-2003 world tour. They performed at the Classical Brit Awards at the Royal Albert Hall, The Queens Golden Jubilee classical concert held at Buckingham Palace and on many TV and radio programmes in the UK and abroad. After two highly successful years the band decided to go their own ways in order to pursue their individual careers. Since then he has released an album entitled Sat Where the Castle Stood, continued his solo performance career and completed a four year degree course in Spanish and European Studies at Royal Holloway University, London and the Universidad de Córdoba, Spain. As a solo artist this classical guitarist continues to play at numerous prestigious events and venues – highlights have included the American Ambassador’s London Residence, The Ritz, Leeds Castle, Farnham Castle, Jesus College Cambridge, The Guildhall Windsor, the Natural History Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
