a thin 30 year old Glaswegian man, touch giddy in the head, sometimes poet of mangled form and dirty prose, sporadic drummer, drunk grammarian, waffler, painter using crayons, lover, hater, learner, teacher, pedestrian, provocateur, wanderer, confronter of shadows, irritating whine. He mines the darker regions of Scottish Culture and Psychology. He has read widely in Scotland and England. Produced a collection of poetry and short stories – Riddle With Errors – and is currently writing another for release with Red Squirrel Press in late 2013.

“A veritable masterclass in dark-hued yet uplifting, catchily literate roots-pop” (The Herald)
“So good, so dark, so beautiful” (Daniel P. Carter, BBC Radio 1)
