The Boy With The Greyhound Tattoo

a ukulele, voice, bass and looper.

2020 Greyhound vision?

I played some amazing places in 2019 & I’d like to shout a huge end of year thank you to everyone who booked me, cheered a performance or bought a CD. From the main stage at GNUF with Fake Plastic Tigers, to the AMAZING crowd in Munich, the Fatboy Slim fans of Hoylake & the wonderfully supportive folks in my own village hall. In 2020 my new EP will finally be here, I have a few shows already booked & I’m going to do some online gigging too. As ever, watch this space ratfans!

And who are you again?

I am The Boy With The Greyhound Tattoo. Hello there!

I take a vocal microphone, soprano ukulele and bass guitar and plug them into my looper to crank out an eclectic mix of my own songs and interesting cover versions. I sometimes mix a synthesizer, piano and percussion into the mix too! My instruments of choice are a Dave Morgan Soprano (MiSi), Magic Fluke Flea, a Höfner bass guitar, an AKG D5 vocal mic and a pedal board to pull it all together.

I also write a ukulele music reviews website called Uke Planet and am a regular writer for UKE Magazine. I’m actively involved in some other musical projects too including Fake Plastic Tigers, Hobbelpaard & Beige Fraggle. I even teach a little uke now and again.

In past musical lives I played bass with flippin’ fabulous Twin Hazey, sang a few backing vocals for Suggs and fluffed my way through a music degree.

I got to play The Cavern!
