He is described as not just an artist but also a cultural anthropologist and dub-griot.  He uses his skills as a singer/songwriter and a dub-poet to capture his audience, whilst taking them on a cultural, spiritual and political journey.  His multi-disciplinary skills as a performer have landed him roles in plays at the Royal Shakespeare Company and The Birmingham Rep. Theatre; and his work is currently being studied by Dr. Eric Doumerc, a French academic who is conducting ongoing research on Black British Performance Poets with Caribbean heritage.  On top of that he is featured in a recently published poetry anthology; RED: Peepal Tree Press.
