I first met Sonny in the summer of 1985. I was playing a gig with my first band Another day and Sonny approached me after the gig.
He asked if I'd like to sing for his Jazz Funk outfit Scat Poeta.
We discovered we had a mutual taste in music and started writing together.
A year later Matt Johnson joined the band and we began to collaborate on a number of songs.
Sonny, Matt and I get together after Scat Poeta split to record some songs I had written and we called this project the Mirrored Shower, which derived from a silly fantasy chat-up line.
It has since gone on to reflect the many different textures and styles in our music.
Our first album, Have You Seen This Man, is a compilation of my songs spanning ten years and was produced by Matt, before he got the call to join Jamiroquai in 2001.
Sonny and I have played live as a duo, notably The Spratton Folk Festival in 2009.
We are now busy rehearsing for The Gigantic Mirrorball Show which is in aid of Macmillan Caring Locally (please see our events page for more details). This has involved putting a 12 piece band together in order to showcase our music.
