Thank you for visiting my website.
What a crazy year it has been!
Needless to say I have missed performing so much but I am grateful for the few gigs I did have back in the Autumn before the second lock down.
It’s been challenging to stay creative, however, I am releasing my 2018 album Waters of March on bandcamp very soon, better late than never. I also have a new album coming out soon with my latin jazz project Orpheus which I run together with keys wizard Martin Jenkins.
I hope to see you all at a live gig as soon as we are able to, in the meantime, if you haven’t already bought a copy of my 2018 album, it’s available to purchase in both digital or physical form, simply click on this link Shop page.
You can also follow me on social media and subscribe to my mailing list on my Contact page to keep up to date with my performances, any music videos and collaborations.
Thank you so much for your continuing support. I am sure things will only improve from hereon and that this year will be a much better one.
See you soon!
