Have been touring with Theo Travis and Dylan Howe.

Have done several columns for the lovely people at Guitarist Magazine

I helped produce a new CD by composer extraordinaire Laura Rossi. It’s called ‘The Battle of the Somme’. Here’s some info about it…

The score was a commission from The Imperial War Museum in 2006 to mark the 90th anniversary of The Battle of the Somme as a soundtrack for the digitally restored film to be released on DVD on November 3rd 2008. In 1916 this film was viewed by over 20 million people, making it one of the most successful British films ever made. Laura’s score was recorded in London by the Philharmonia Orchestra and mixed at Abbey Road Studios and was recently inscribed into UNESCO’s Memory of the World register in recognition of its importance – the first British document of any kind to be included.

We just got back from a successful promotional screening at Pordenone Film Festival and the CD will be available to purchase from www.virtuosarecords.co.uk on November 3rd 2008.

I’ve a few gigs coming up, check the gigs page of my site and hopefully the site will be getting a full overhaul soon. With the addition of some new content…
