Geoff originally South Manchester born,but spent most of his youth brought up in Carlisle started out on the Cumbrian pub & club circuit as a guitar player at age 18 years having been trained by local blues guitarist Olly Alcock (Known for his band ‘England’ in London featuring John Waite (Missing You)  in the 70’s).

After a couple years he started songwriting and formed an original material band ‘Tel Aviv’ in the pop/rock genre advancing to Vocals & Guitar.Following the break-up of the band he sold his then home to finance 2 solo singles (‘Stand Up’ and ‘London Life’) and moved to London in June of 1987.With only indie acclaim he then joined/formed West London Rockers “Dream State City” where he met present drummer Mick Hatz on the tour circuit until they split in late  1991.

After a 2 year break fighting off glandular fever a solo CD release featuring a cover of the Otis Redding classic ‘Dock Of The Bay’ in 1994 took Geoff back on the road on the UK’s acoustic circuit.

While recording some demo material with producer Paul Mex in 1996 the two teamed up to song write some dance material which became the ‘Saved By Zero’ project (see website in links section).

In September of 2013 Geoff then started to return to his musical roots of Rock and Blues including the likes of Whitesnake/Free/Bad Company/the Faces along with the Americana influences of Don Henley/Eagles/ZZTop and found his own direction which resulted in the album release called “One to One” in the Autumn of 2014.

Teaming up with Mick again they produced the  ‘Get Close’ Album released in April 2016 along with building their ‘Live’ act and then with the release of  ‘4 Play E.P’ in 2018,The ‘Kids (Robbie & Kylie) E.P.’ & the seasonal ‘Christmas Time’ E.P. in 2019 were well received that year.Mick announced his retirement with the ‘Caught On The Outside’ single early 2020.Geoff now embracing his solo acoustic work with 3 E.P. outings along with the next album which has now been released for 2020 called ‘Big Town’ with ‘The Raw Rox Band’.
