Frontman of Welsh post-hardcore band The Blackout and previously frontman for When Reason Sleeps.
He has been straight edge for several years and often cites the now defunct nu-metal genre and Limp Bizkit in particular as his biggest influences. He is close friends with the Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins with whom he has matching tattoos.
In a 2008 reader's poll for Kerrang! magazine he came third in the "Sexiest Male" category.
