In 2007 I was asked to do a session for Welsh glam metal legends Tigertailz. The result was the title track of their album ‘Thrill Pistol‘. After that I did some gigs doing backing vox for the boyz, which included a festival in Bilbao in 2008 supporting such acts as Kiss & Ronnie Dio, and a gig in Italy supporting Europe & Whitesnake.
I went back into the studio with the ‘Tailz earlier this year and did backing vox for their forthcoming EP ‘Knives’
Omega66 is a recording project of Chris ‘Krik’ Young, and I’ve done quite a bit of vocal work with Krik over the years. Check out the Omega66 website.
Canute is a Cardiff based 13 piece funk outfit that I also do some singing with. You can’t have too much funk!!
