I play guitar in YUMA:

We are a lively acoustic duo (guitar and vocal) with an extensive original discography, well established on the North East music scene. 

Veterans of the wedding scene and with a long history of event and open mic hosting, we are currently extremely busy on the North East scene and taking booking as far ahead as late 2022. Keep up to date with us on our social media pages below.

For bookings contact: yumamusicofficial@hotmail.com or message via our facebook page.

Under the Ebb moniker, I produce experimental instrumental music. Latest release 'A World Never Seen' is now available on all major streaming platforms and Bandcamp. 

This is a solo project, featuring occasional collaborations, through which I am exploring the role of the digital-native composer/producer in a post-digital creative landscape. 

The Nick Gladdish Band


I play drums in the Nick Gladdish Band, boasting an extensive catalogue of original blues, jazz and rock influenced work. Current record 'Last One Get the Lights' is now available and we are looking to tour it early 2022.


We met through playing together in wedding bands, but have now become a cohesive unit, using our experience in playing together to flesh out and breath life into Nick's compositions. We have played all around the UK and already have the next album cycle in the pipeline.

I also record, mix and co-produce the band's output. 

The Herbal Remedy

I play drums in blues band The Herbal Remedy. The band is the electric manifestation of acclaimed North East blues act Auld Man's Baccie. Also an original act, the band does occasional sell out shows around the North of England, between the more regular 'Baccie gigs. I recorded and produced latest album 'Land of the Livin''


Another group of which I am a regular member is modern folk act Elizabethtown. I play drums with this band, making appearances at UK festivals and venues such as the Cluny in Newcastle. New single 'Whiskey River' is out now on all streaming platforms.

I play all styles and fit easily into any ensemble. Working regularly with various professional wedding and function bands across the North of England, I am highly proficient and versatile and can comfortably step in at short notice to both covers and original live sets.
