He has toured all over the world and recorded with his own bands, The Tickets, The Fabulous Brothers, The Kevin Flynn Band and as guitarist for many artists, Rob Strong, David Bowie etc. etc.
He began gigging in Dublin's Folk Clubs with teenage pal, Tony Curtis, before the creation of a more electric band called Easy Street. Then he joined and gigged regularly with The Rob Strong Band. Rob was, and still is, Ireland's top R'n'B and Soul singer. Upon moving to England he gigged with several bands in London and then in the north of England.
Then came a move to Switzerland where he formed The Tickets, with whom he recorded two well-received albums and several successful singles and toured all over Europe. After The Tickets he had some success with Scarlet Fever and worked regularly as session guitarist at Montreux's Mountain Studios.
There then followed a move back to Ireland for a few years where he worked as a sound engineer and producer for Owl Records, released his well-received Dublin Town and once again teamed up with Rob Strong, playing all over Ireland and Northern Ireland. He also produced Rob's successful single, You've Lost That Loving Feeling and his live album, Hollywood Nights.
