Friendly composer / songwriter based in the south of England, UK. Meaningful lyrics and memorable melodies are my strongpoints, although I am able to write in almost any genre and for a range of instrumentation. I am particularly adept at working with lyricists to set their words to music, and love the task of doing so in collaboration with the writer themselves. I mostly studied classical music, achieving Grade 8 on Clarinet, but was also part of a rock band (inspired by Guns N' Roses, AC/DC, Black Sabbath etc.) who lost to Ed Sheeran in a battle-of-the-bands style competition (feel free to ask me). I've sung in numerous choirs and even appear in the backing crowd on a Saxon record. Highlights of the past year include releasing an album of original music title "K-centricity" to Spotify, Apple Music and other major streaming services, and also writing a Christmas song that was aired on the radio.
Dreams and ambitions:
My ambition is to excel in my pursuit of creating music and satisfying the ears and minds of people the entire world over. I dream to leave my mark on this world in the form of music, without seeking fame or notoriety, instead just being a known name in specific circles. In terms of musical ambitions, I have 3 goals: 1. Write a fugue (and hear it performed) - I have a love-hate relationship, it's complicated... 2. Write a musical 3. Have a song that a random passerby hums or sings as I pass, without even realising they passed the person who helped create it. Beyond *my* goals, I want to help as many artists, film producers and creative folk express themselves musically in a way that allows others to hear them at their best.
This is one of the tracks from my upcoming album "K-centricity". All writing, performance, recording and production is my own work. Fun fact: I came up with the basis of this melody whilst walking along a clifftop near my place of work (I work in IT) during a lunch break, and recorded myself singing the melody as a voicenote on my phone (wind and all).
