ABOUT

Professional musician, composer, and songwriter, who loves to make live and recorded music. Crazy about a good groove, some juicy harmony, and a solid hook. Studied piano, saxophone, conducting, and composition at Trinity College of Music, King's College London, and the Royal Academy of Music. I cross lots of genres, and incorporate jazz, classical, pop, and R&B in to a lot of what I do, and as a result regularly write for large orchestras, choirs, jazz groups, big bands, and pop bands.
