As the head of the family run band management/booking agency, Ruthless Artistes Ltd I get to see the hard working talent present in the music scene at the coal face. I have a passion for music which knows no boundaries, although my musical preferences are deeply ensconced in the 60s, Mod, Ska, punk and Northern Soul genres I have a liking for all genres as my record collection would suggest.
