I have performed mostly as keyboardist, either as soloist or accompanist performing classical recitals or with bands including: Druidspear, Mooncoin, Ill Eagle Raven, Jolt, Monkhouse, Terminus and The Solar Flares.
I have composed for film, games and drama. I like working with a visual or dramatic focus and being free to respond to these creatively, and creating the most appropriate sounds and structures from a solo improvised instrument to a symphonic, electric, eclectic score.
I worked as a producer and engineer in Anew Music in Birmingham - working with bands and solo artists. I think I have a sensitive touch with production, to which I bring all of my experience and skills, always aiming to realise an artist's vision while at the same time bringing new insights into how a song or track can be developed.
I have taught piano and keyboard one-to-one privately and in music centres around Birmingham since 1999. I have also run singing for pleasure classes in adult education centres and been involved with directing songwriting workshops.
I play piano, keyboards, synths, pipe organ, guitar, bass, whistle, percussion and other instruments.
I am familiar with Logic, Ableton and MainStage.
