He fired first is an up and coming, acoustic, folk, punk singer songwriter with a straight talking approach..

Armed with  songs that are full of real life events, energy, morals,  activism and kindness, his style is really moving folk in another direction. His unique sound is driven along nicely with a hard playing guitar, a passionate voice and the beat of a stomp box that will have you chanting and stamping along.

His songs  have been described as powerful and thought provoking with lyrics that are designed to stir and provoke a reaction, couple that with a live show that is full of energy and honesty he really pulls no punches. The attitude and charisma with which he performs was definitely forged within the punk bands that he fronted around the south of England.   You can hear the influences of Frank Turner, Ferocious Dog, Flogging Molly, Billy Bragg, Bob Dylan and Beans on Toast within the songs but it is certainly not limited to just those artists. People who have witnessed a He fired first show have remarked on how powerful it was as well as energetic and fun, 

He prides himself on trying to touch on a broad spectrum of emotions during a show which makes him stand out on most line ups. 

He was nominated for the best newcomer award at the annual GSMC Awards and is getting a lot of radio airplay, as well as that he has  been playing all over the place from Manchester to London supporting touring acts and playing festivals with a unique show and style that sets him well apart within the folk music ranks.
