Biographical Notes

Born in London in 1963 of Jamaican parentage, I studied composition and clarinet at the Royal College of Music between 1981-85. I became the 1994 winner of the Cornelius Cardew prize for composition.

As an eclectic and musical devotee, I emerged from the confines of a rigid classical music education to become a singer of Rhythm and Blues, rock, soul, pop, jazz and contemporary opera as well as a songwriter in all aforementioned styles.


Add a sprinkling of saxophone playing, television presenting and record producing and that is pretty much my C V to date.

As can be seen from my list of selected works, I have been predominantly a woodwind composer, but am presently seeking text to set vocally. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Below are a list of Selected Works, for further information please look at my personal web site
