"...a highly experienced musician, tutor & multi-instrumentalist..." As a professional musician & multi-instrumentalist who has been performing live for almost fourteen years in various successful original & cover bands, I've gained experience in many musical fields. Including composing, performing, recording & producing music with The Sub Rosas, I have spent time with bands in rehearsal & recording studios using industry standard equipment & processes while serving more of an engineer & producer role. Acting as a session player for bands has encouraged me to become a more rounded musician, a more confident performer & a more tasteful & creative player, playing to compliment each individual song. This has led to being booked to play at some prestigious venues including Dingwalls (Camden, London), Fairfield Halls (Croydon, London), Old Trafford (Manchester, Lancashire) & The Trump Tower (Istanbul, Turkey).

About Croydon

The large town of Croydon in south London, England is located in 9.5 south of Charing Cross. It is the principal settlement of the London Borough of Croydon, and is one of the largest commercial districts outside of Central London.

In the mid-19th century, Croydon was a leisure destination. Today it has become an important centre for shopping, with the main shopping street being the North End, where well-known shops such as Next, Zara, French Connection, and Waterstones can be found. Near the North End is the Croydon High Street, home to the late 17th century, Grade II listed Wrencote House. Meanwhile on Katharine Street, there is an arts and museum complex known as Croydon Clocktower. It contains the David Lean Cinema, the Museum of Croydon, the Braithwaite Hall, and the town's Central Library. Another notable art venue is the Fairfield Halls, and arts, entertainment and conference centre.

The largest and busiest railway station serving Croydon is the East Croydon station. Immediately outside the station's main entrance is a Tramlink tram stop. West Croydon and South Croydon are the other two stations operating in Croydon.
