Biography

Updated Jan 2017
Greetings, my name is Roger and I live in the UK near Coventry.
I am originally from Jamaica and played in bands throughout school and university before doing a 5 year stint with a Reggae band in the 80’s. This was followed by many years teaching in the UK but I left all of that some years ago and began playing keyboards with local bands and drumming with the Coventry Samba Band


Last year brought in lots of new kit to the studio including a Nord piano, a new computer and new recording software. Recordings have continued while I sort everything out so I hope to post more on icompositions during 2017.


Here is my SoundCloud page

I am also on YouTube
