​With 20 years experience of professional music work, a degree in Music from Bristol University and an Advanced Certificate from the Associated Board (equivalent to today's DipABRSM), I can provide music for any occasion in Bristol, Somerset, Gloucestershire, South Wales or further afield.

I have a repertoire of hundreds of songs from the last hundred years or so, from swinging jazz classics by the likes of Gershwin and Duke Ellington, through the master rock and soul songwriters of the sixties and seventies like the Beatles and Stevie Wonder, right down to modern classics by John Legend and The Weeknd. An accomplished classical pianist, I can play advanced repertoire at short notice.

From this vast array I can craft a set for any situation, whether it be gentle ballads for candlelight, or something more lively for post-wedding ceremony drinks. With my indefatigable stride left-hand technique, I can be a self-contained rhythm section creating the atmosphere of the prohibition era!

As an excellent sight reader and gifted improviser with an ability to transpose (without using the button on the keyboard!)  I am also an ideal accompanist for singers or other performers.

I play in several traditional jazz bands, so if an authentic 'hot' sound is required for your occasion, that can be arranged! Likewise, with my extensive network of contacts, I can create a small jazz ensemble of any size tailored to the event.

Alternately, if you want to combine ancient and modern, please consider my Postmodern Jukebox-inspired band Trip For Biscuits.
