I work both as a lyricist and songwriter, and have co-written with many writers from around the world. I am equally comfortable with toplining a finished track as with creating something new from scratch. If you have a half-finished song idea, I am skilled at finding the essence of it and working it into a fully formed song you can be proud of. I am an experienced arranger and producer, and also have a wide network of musicians that can add their talents to your project. I work in both Logic and Pro Tools, but if you have another DAW it is always possible to export to my platforms one way or the other.
As a live vocal performer, I work mainly with singer/songwriter trio My Quiet Companion and with Ocean’s Five, a quintet that explores the Great American Songbook and finds a new twist on seemingly worn-out standards. As a recording artist, my latest full length release is Sawdust & Rust. I can put together a live music act for your party/wedding etc to suit your needs and I will provide lead and/or backing vocals on your recording project if that what’s called for.

Below are a few selected videos: First a short dance film I scored, then a showreel of other music for film, then a promo video for Gingerbread Man, the single from my second solo album, and finally a lyric video for Caroline, a song with my folk-pop project Sawdust & Rust.
