I divide my time between singing groups and community choirs, and regular gigging, composing and touring work – enjoying the varied musical life that this offers.
I run singing groups, community choirs and singing for health groups around East Kent – working for many respected charities and organisations such as The Sidney de Haan Research Centre, The Canterbury Cantata Trust, Living Lively and Music 4 Wellbeing whilst also gigging, travelling and touring. I play regularly with several bands and artists, including Yndi Halda, Will Varley, Molly’s Lips, Cocos Lovers and The Hellfire Orchestra. I am a member of The Montrose Composers Club a group set up to share, create, improvise and perform new musical works. The MCC have performed regularly at the Folkestone Profound Sound Festival and continue to develop interesting collaborations with local creatives such as visual artist Matt Rowe and the Sacconi Quartet who have performed some of their works. My solo project ‘DAU’ allows me the opportunity to explore soundscape and drone-based music.
I studied Music Technology and Media, Communications and Cultural Studies at Keele University where I started to develop my sound and creative music production skills focusing heavily on creative applications of technology such as electro-acoustic composition and video production.
