As a schoolboy, Ant excelled in English, enjoying stretching his imagination and creating short stories. His passion for music and drama fuelled him to make a film in 1989 with friends from the amateur dramatics group he belonged to, using his own songs and script.
His musical activity increased and he regularly performed with local bands, embracing the role of lyric writer and musical director. In 1999, he co-wrote and performed a musical.
In recent years, Ant has been lead vocalist with a semi-professional Pink Floyd tribute band and is half of the highly acclaimed alternative pop duo, 2 of a Kind.
He has written a concept album of songs to accompany The Breathing Wheel and is busy organising performances of the live show in summer 2014.
