                         CYPRUS WEDDING  SINGER

My career in music started pretty late in life (46) to be exact. I was singing Fly me to the Moon to our new born son, to help him go to sleep, my wife taped it, put it on fb & the next day at work people started commenting on how good I sounded, so I decided to go to a studio & record a few songs that I could play to him to help him get to sleep. But with backing music it failed, however I enjoyed the experience at the studio so much that three songs became 12 and I made my own album. I put it out to a few people in the business, some family and friends, & they thought it was great. I then decided to take the next step, got some vocal coaching, and build my repertoire. From doing my first full solo gig in 2013, I've never looked back.

I went full time in 2015, performing an authentic tribute to Sinatra, blue contacts, dinner suit, the accent, gags, & even a bottle of JD on a table next to me (filled with apple juice of course). I still perform the tribute now and then, and it's very well received, some people have said I'm the nearest thing to Ole Blue Eyes that they've heard. Now this is coming from people who have seen the great man perform, so that's reassuring; although my wife thinks I sound more like Dean, I'm happy with the comparisons.

Over the last 4 years I've built a big part of my shown on greats like Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Andy Williams, Matt Monro etc etc, however I do a lot more than Swing, I cover hits from the likes of Elvis, J.Cash, Adele, Eric Clapton, Bill Withers, Sam Cook, Chris Issack & many more...

In 2016 one of my musical goals came true, I formed my own 5 piece Swing & Jazz band "Moonriver" and have toured the island performing at weddings & events.
