In the early 1960s, he was active in the local R & B group The Renegades in Neath, South Wales. He soon joined the group The Mustangs in his hometown and changed the group name to Eyes Of Blue in October 1964. He gained local popularity and made his single debut in 1966 with a contract with Decca. In 1968, he won the contest sponsored by Melody Maker magazine and signed a new contract with Mercury, released two psychedelic contemporary albums, and played an active role as a central figure. In 1970, the group produced an album under the name of Big Sleep, but soon disbanded. In 1971, he also worked with the members of Big Sleep at Pete Brown & Piblokto!. After the group was disbanded, he turned solo and released the only album «Song Bird» from Pegasus. With the same Lou Reizner as the Eyes Of Blue era as the producer, it was produced in collaboration with Wil Malone of Orange Bicycle and fellow Taff Williams of the Eyes Of Blue era, and was highly acclaimed as a fine work of the SSW album later.
