I am currently working on two EMI production music commissions – Summery Americana and Indie/Country/ Folk.
For both these albums I am working with a range of male and female vocalists. I am working with the hugely talented singer Ayelle and the trusty talented bass player Dave Wademan and Dom Clare on Drums.
Both these albums are due for release in September 2015.
There are two wonderful milestones for the song Dust:
1. PRS have confirmed that the song has received in excess of 1 million plays on you tube by users across the world.
2. Dust was placed in a recent episode of the US TV Show “Secret Wedding” and was the song for the first dance, introduced by the wonderful Cat Deely.
Very happy to read that I was nominated for category of “best Bloke with Guitar” in the Consequence of Sound Worthy Awards for Glastonbury 2015.

My song “Dust” has been used for the soundtrack of the 4th Series of CTC Series “Kitchen” in Russia. My song can be heard playing in the end credits every week.
The Russian TV channel CTC, run by the group CTC Media, is investing $8 million in a 40-episode TV series, Kukhnya (Kitchen), which is to be aired this fall as part of a scheme aimed at revamping the station’s programming.
The comedy series began filming in early July and the production will continue through the end of the year, Eduard Iloyan, general producer of Yellow, Black and White, which produces the series for CTC, told The Hollywood Reporter.
