"I began playing at age 11. My brother, Chris, was already getting pretty good on lead guitar so I picked up bass. I started my first band, Breakdown, when I was 12 with 2 friends & we did OK until the bass player position came available in my brother's band, Fury UK, & I joined in August 2008 making my debut at Bloodstock Open Air. With Fury UK I released 2 full length albums & a DVD. I was lucky enough to tour many parts of the world, also sharing a stage with some great bands - Saxon, Y&T, Michael Schenker Group, Blaze Bayley & of course Iced Earth in the winter of 2011. I was proud to be announced as new bassist with Iced Earth on 10th April 2012. We are currently on the MTV Headbangers Ball Tour sporting my new CORT GB 5 CUSTOM BASS
