I started playing guitar at age 7 and a few years after that tried my hand at keyboards, then played keyboards in a 5 piece band at age 13,a year after that I crawled my way back to guitar and became the lead singer for the band Ladds, my passion for gigging has never subsided and hence I still try my best to gig 3 to 4 times per week.I gigged for 15 years with my bass guitarist, Riaan Truter, 7 years in Ladds and 8 years as Nightshift. I packed it in at age 29 as family demands took priority then, played again in 96 and 97 with the rock band Cannon, packed it up AGAIN after 2 years. I played solo from 1998 to August 2011 when Andy D'Alton joined me on lead guitar, so most of the lead work on my tracks is done by Andy except for on "Sugar Coated" and "Lied Vir Die Wind" where I did all the guitars. I started writing my own material 3 years ago,hence the few humble attempts that you can now listen to and hopefully you'll enjoy them! I now have a duo "Slip-Jam" with the "Fender Bender" Andy D'Alton and we have a 6 piece band named "Slip-Jam" the Band. More than anything else this is our drug of choice, and we do it as often as we possibly can, we love our work and it truly is a blessing for us to be able to work this as often as we do!
