I have illustrated educational books for young people and have helped to develop community radio in Calderdale, Phoenix FM hosting The Soul City Show every Thursday, 8pm til 10pm which has included interviews with Geno Washington, Marvin Junior of The Dells and Melvin Davis. As a writer I have written over 20 sets of sleeve notes for CD compilations as well as contributing to magazines such as Blues & Soul, Soul Express and MOJO.
A history of Holland Dozier Holland, “Love Factory” was published by New Haven in July, 2021.
Sections of the work have been serialised by the Soul Up North fanzine who also publish a regular Funk column, These have included a tribute to Ray ‘Stingray’ Davis. This aspect of my work has also allowed me the opportunity to write about such artists as Roger Troutman, Larry Graham and Sly & The Family Stone and to interview some more of my musical heroes such as Melvin Davis, Steve Mancha, General Johnson and Harrison Kennedy.
