This is a collaboration with the wonderful, award-winning keyboard player Tom Cawley. Old-fashioned songwriting with contemporary electronic soundscapes drawing influences from James Blake, Little Dragon and Paul Simon, these songs combine soaring melodies with emotive harmonies and and explore themes from love to millennial existential angst.
A collaboration with long time music/foodie friend, Tom Hewson; This was originally a project inspired by Salman Rushdie’s book, Midnight’s Children (which premiered at the EDF London Jazz Festival in 2015) and has since developed into a band and has branched off in other directions.
Music/video is coming soon!
