A creative jazz pianist, vocalist and teacher
Welcome to my website. You can find info about me and my current projects, and there are regular updates with news, recordings, and new endeavours.
I also offer bands performing Live Music for Events - including a Sinatra-style Swing Orchestra, background jazz groups and a party band.
Jazz education is front and centre of my mind for much of this month - including leading a session on jazz at Warwick School on Sunday 10th March. The more young musicians I can persuade to even just occasionally play their instrument without reading from written notes (i.e. improvise!), the happier I'll be!
I'm very much looking forward to seeing the Cheltenham Jazz Festival again in May - particularly the charismatic baritone of Gregory Porter. For fans of more contemporary jazz, I'm enjoying Gogo Penguin's album Fanfares, and they sound like a group that would be brilliant live so I'll be checking them out.
Happy New Year everybody! Looking forward to plenty of great music-making in 2013.
You can stay up to date with me on facebook and Twitter, and even SoundCloud.
I'm happy to say you can now check out the audio from my Lunchtime Concert at Warwick Arts Centre last month - have a listen on the projects page. I'd love to hear what you think about the recordings, so do send me some comments by any method you like - and criticism is as welcome as praise!
If there's any cool music out there you reckon people should hear, then send it my way - and hopefully my Twitter feed will do the same for you.
