Biography

Reflecting upon 23 years of performing to children

There's you, a guitar and 300 kids in the school hall and you have to entertain them for 55 minutes - Scary? You bet your life it is!

Whereas adults will put up with being bored for quite some time without making it OBVIOUS that they being are bored, children won't - so, if you're going to sing to 300 kids aged 5-8 for up to an hour, you'd better know what you're doing.
I've decided after all these years that a good children's CD is one which adults play when there are NO KIDS AROUND AT ALL! For example, adults have been known to sing along with my songs while waiting for the traffic lights to change. The look on their faces when they get 'sprung' is worth getting up in the morning for. My all time favourite example of this 'phenomenon' is 50 guys doing aerobics to Spaghetti Bolognaise at 6.30am in a park in Perth many years ago. My brother-in-law witnessed this - all I can say is I wish I'd been there.

Writing, recording and producing high quality music for kids has and always will be for me a labour of love, a hard slog, exhilarating, frustrating, time consuming, expensive, thought provoking, incredibly satisfying and much more...a bit like life really!
