Hauntings

Released in time for Hallowe'en, Hauntings is a solo album created from improvisations recorded on my friend Liz Bavidge's 1925 Blüthner grand piano. 14 tracks - each based on a UK haunted location, tracks are varied and in addition to piano include drums, percussion, sax, clarinet, guitar and ambient backgrounds.

Valentines Day, Pancakes and Other News

Currently working hard on recording and mixing the next Flame Retardant Bears album, hopefully that should be out in March. In other news, Admiral Harp Duo, saxophonist Hulting-Cohen and harpist Jennifer R. Ellis, played my piece Back on the Rack in December in Amherst, Massachusetts. Back on the Rack is a piece for alto sax, harp and ambient electronic accompaniment. Also in December, Contemporary Columbus arts collective performed my setting of Thomas Campion’s poem “Now Winter Nights Enlarge” for Mezzo-soprano, Tenor, Viola and Piano at Wild Goose Creative in Columbus, OH.

Spaced Out

I've released a couple of space related pieces, first is a single 'Music from the Outer Solar System' which is a piece for piano and electronics. The second is 'Minor Planets' - an album of 14 tracks all recorded on location in Sheriff Hutton on a 1901 Blüthner grand piano. Many thanks to Sarah, Steve and more importantly Matt (whose piano it is). Both available on CD Baby and all major distribution sites, e.g. Spotify, iTunes etc.
