beautiful bespoke compositions
London UK composer & arranger
For the last twenty years I've been a session musician, touring and recording with many UK and international artists:
Luther Vandross, Michael Jackson, M People, Kylie Minogue, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Bono, Beverley Knight, Allsaints, Sugababes,
Jeff Lynne's ELO, Heather Small, Jocelyn Brown, Rita Ora, Anastacia, Tom Jones, will.i.am, Emeli Sandé, Pixie Lott……
Although my career has mostly been in the pop domain I was classically trained up to age 18 on piano and violin.
When, about 15 years ago, I was asked to write a string section arrangement I found not only did it come naturally to me but it was increadibly rewarding, and with a head for both pop and classical I was able to achieve a uniquely fresh sound.
I make my compositions and orchestrations a vibrant part of the track, innovative, contemporary and distinctive yet unobtrusive. I achieve this with melodic counterpoint and distinctive harmony to make the strings sing out whilst sitting comfortably in the mix.
I've arranged for styles ranging from pop and soul, R&B and gospel to country and folk, urban and rock, even african. Stylistically versatile, I've written for films, animations, TV, advertising and commercial music media. I love all music!!
The whole job can be completed online using mp3 for demos, pdf for finished parts and AIFF or WAV for audio. There'll be plenty of opportunity for you to tailor the arrangement until you're completely happy.
I can recommend musicians & studio, and supervise or conduct at the recording using some of the world's best session players who bring flair and character (and their treasured expensive instruments) to the recordings.
If your budget is restricted I'm also a skilled keyboard player and using samples, recorded part-by-part with human emotion, amazingly realistic results can be achieved at a much lower cost. It's down to the depth of your pocket!
