Following on from my recent sold out launch gig in London, I’m delighted to present my new live set to celebrate the release of my LP “Consequential”, out via Scottish label Blackford Hill. My gigs to date have covered a broad range, including jazz festivals, club / electronic nights, live studio streams and acoustic / intimate shows.
Here is a YouTube playlist with a selection of recent videos:

The live set primarily includes works from my new album “Consquential”, alongside tracks from my debut album “Patterns Various”. These works are for solo sax and electronics, and blur the lines between minimalist classical, jazz and electronic music.

The live set features a nice selection of tracks from my released works – a range of atmospheric, energetic and cyclical compositions with plenty of improvisation thrown in for good measure. In between each work I tell the stories behind the music, making things more intimate and personal – this aspect which has gone down really well with audiences so far. The full-length show lasts up to 60 minutes including chat, but I’m also very happy with a shorter sets to fit in as a support act or at festivals, anything from 25 mins upwards is fine with me.
My live show consists of just me, my sax and one pedal board. Tech wise it’s just 2 simple ¼ inch jacks out that can be plugged straight into your house desk / PA system. Sound check is quick and simple, I use a clip-on mic through my own mini mixer, and don’t even need any monitors as I perform with headphones.
My music has been well received across press and radio (BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 3, Radio X, Jazz FM, etc), featured in several playlists and has been found on the front page of bandcamp no less than 3 times! In addition, a track was recently licensed for a compilation on the respected Nonclassical label. Please contact me if you need any more information including press pack, photos, campaign summary and biography.
