The countless shows, fully energised and singing my heart out with Red Electrick as we entertained beautiful people, will be memories imprinted in my heart and mind forever!
And for this and all of you who supported us during these years, I am humbly grateful. I am also very pleased to know that Joe Roscoe has accepted to join Red Electrick to continue where I left off; couldn’t have been a better choice!!
