About A Bee

A musician and writer, so far he’s spent half his life in the UK and half in Asia.

Bee grew up in England but is now based in Bangkok. He left school at 16 to form the Danse Society with Steve Rawlings.

He moved down to London to join a band which became Panache. During his time in London as well as hanging out in clubs, he also did the door at London’s first fetish club SKIN2 .  When Panache became ‘big in Japan’ he spent a lot of time there doing tours and recording.

After Panache he worked on his first solo project and went into the studio with artists like Bill Nelson and Blancmange.  Bee also hooked up with Psychic TV and later teamed up with the remnants of Southern Death Cult to form Getting the Fear.  He would later emerge with his own indie outfit, Into A Circle.

At the start of the nineties he had a brief stint in NYC then moved to Asia permanently and settled in Bangkok.  

After a couple of crazy years travelling around the country, picking up both good and bad habits, he went back to music but this time as a radio DJ.  For over seven years, Bee produced and presented his ‘In the Hive’ radio show on Bangkok’s leading international radio station and interviewed artists like Radiohead, Bjork and The Manic Street Preachers, he also wrote a music column in The Nation newspaper. In 2003 he formed Thailand’s first electroclash band, Futon, and did gigs all over the world from Vietnam to Dublin, Tokyo to Berlin. For his next band Goo he went back to doing the lead vocals.

Bee also worked for five years as the editor of a lifestyle magazine in Bangkok for the Bed Supperclub group.

After Bed Supperclub closed its doors for the last time in 2013,  He spent a year managing publishing projects at The Andrew Biggs Academy and then began working on freelance writing projects for companies like the Beat Hotel, Apex Profound Beauty and Bangkok Liposuction.

At the beginning of 2015  he left Bangkok, headed west and spent his time hopping between London and New York, reacquainting himeself with both cities.

A year later, he set up his own copywrighting company www.wordsmith.company
