I'm a pianist, writer, producer and performer - happy to work on projects with singers, songwriters, video/film makers, choreographers and artists.
Based in East Sussex and London, I'm interested in a great variety of music from baroque, classical, jazz, blues and folk, through Bach, Bartok, Benjamin Britten, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Randy Newman, Eminem, free-form jazz, Aphex Twin, Rap and Electronica. I use many influences and can write for film, theatre performance and radio. I'm also comfortable with most styles for session work and keen to collaborate on songwriting and performance with new (or not so new) artists. I sometimes perform live (piano/keyboards/organ and electronics)
I play piano, under the pseudonym of 'DR ASPALLS' for the internationally famous alt-drag jazz cabaret eco show phenomenon 'TIMBERLINA' (www.timberlina.co.uk). A lot of fun on the cabaret circuit - he's also one of the nicest people on the planet: charismatic and kind - what's not to like: I just accompany his amazing songs.
I also play with my pal FRANCES CHANTEUSE,
(www.thefrantastics.com) famed and iconic on the London music scene with her band 'The Frantastics'. This is our new duo project: rock & roll, folk, country and strange americana ...
