My journey to music began in the (ahem) very early eighties with the band; The Incurable. I then formed Blow by Blow with two other members of The Incurable, and released an EP. We were quarter finalists in Search for a Star in the late eighties and attracted attention from various music producers before disbanding in the early nineties with life pressures forcing us to get full time jobs!
