I’m delighted to present my brand new live set to celebrate the release of my upcoming LP “Consequential”, out via Scottish label Blackford Hill on June 16th. My gigs to date have covered a broad range, including jazz festivals, club / electronic nights, live studio streams and acoustic / intimate shows.
Here’s all the info you need on my new live set…
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.
“Beautiful use of the saxophone”
Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2
“I love the way he plays the saxophone… pristine, full of energy, and still very soulful as well.”
Elizabeth Alker, BBC Radio 3
“Just so good… he did an amazing session for us”
John Kennedy, Radio X
“One of the great sax innovators of our time”
Louder Than War
“Wonderful – part of my best new music this year”
Stuart Maconie, BBC 6 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.
Below is a YouTube playlist including a highlights reel and some full track performances from recent live streams:
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 recieved across press and radio (BBC 6 Music, Radio 3, Radio X, Jazz FM, etc), featured in several playlists and a track was also licensed for a recent compilation on the respected Nonclassical label. You can read more about radio and press coverage for “Patterns Various” here, and please contact me if you need any more information including press pack, photos, campaign summary and biography.
