As a performer I lead The Blow-Up, translating the sounds of my head into live filmic jazz with my musical comrades and cohorts.
I also perform with the King Tut Trio, creating unlikely interpretations of songs with spoken word and electric energy.

A LITTLE MORE DETAIL…
Trained from an early age in classical music, I’m adept in all styles of jazz through soul into pop music and I’ve performed widely for many years, taking in the Glastonbury and Edinburgh Festivals, theatre productions, big bands and small groups.
Along the way I’ve played with Django Bates and Scott Stroman (jazz composers), Mark Nightingale (top British trombonist), and appeared with David Tennant and Martin Freeman at the Northcott Theatre, Exeter.
A personal highlight for me has been the invitation and opportunity to play twice with the legendary Pee Wee Ellis, the man who practically invented funk as James Brown’s bandleader.
I’ve recorded and written soundtracks for film and TV, including scoring for groundbreaking documentaries on divorce and mental health for RTE Television in Ireland. I’ve worked as an MD and arranger for others.
I’m currently writing a musical!
