I’ve been playing music since I was 10 years old – starting on the piano and trumpet, and moving on to guitars of all forms, and lately the ukulele. Singing has always been a big part of the music I do, and as guitars and ukes are ideal for this – they are the instruments I’ve focused on.
I recorded my first EP in 2005 (“First Light of Dawn”), and then a full album with the band Laughter of the Crowd – “No-one told me why”, in 2006. I recorded a solo album as Nikko Fir called ‘Walking Free’ in 2008.
I’ve been teaching music since 2006, and have taken it up as a part-time career since 2011.
In 2018-2019 I collaborated with old band member Meilyr Wyn to produce a new Nikko Fir EP – Cold Shock, and we started producing videos for Youtube in 2019.
In 2020 I started livestreaming tutorial videos on youtube during the COVID-19 lockdown.
