Quite a long time before I knew what a mic pre even really was, I was a musician playing and writing in bands. Sometimes people ask me to play on their stuff, so here’s a few times that has happened.
I particularly enjoy arranging for strings and approach the process from a contemporary musical point of view, rather than a theory one. I work with several talented arrangers who can turn ideas into proper sheets. If you need strings or anything else for a project then feel free to get in touch.
Stranger Tunes – ‘AM 180’ by Grandaddy, live session
I was invited by Nick Parker to play on a couple of tracks in his ‘Stranger Tunes’ YouTube series over the UK Coronavirus lockdown. I played keys and vocals and also mixed and mastered this cover of Grandaddy’s classic ‘AM 180’.
