'Stunning vocals' BBC Wales; 'Silken' BBC 6 Music. My vocals, playing and songwriting have featured by the likes of BBC Radio 1, 2, 3, 6, Songlines and Gramophone. I'm an efficient remote session worker, with a pro studio.

I'm a keys/synth player, singer, composer and producer. MY innovative music at the boundaries of pop, sound-art, jazz and contemporary classical has been featured by the likes of Gramophone, Songlines, BBC Radio 1, 2, 3 and 6, Spotify, Apple Music and UNESCO. Mostly I'm busy fronting dream pop / sound art duo pecq, composing experimental electro-classical work and producing records for bands.

I provide session vocals, keys and synth, as well as co-writing sessions. I sing pop, electronic, jazz and folk styles. My voice is well suited to the dream pop/ indie pop world, with similar vibes to Men I Trust and Phoebe Bridgers.

I'm an efficient session worker, with access to a pro studio space and vocal chain, and the ability to engineer and comp my own recordings. I also have a lot of experience comping others' vocals, coaching singers through recording sessions and writing harmony and backing vocal parts.

I'm a pianist with Grade 8 Distinction who mainly sessions for jazz, folk and pop genres, as well as recording synth parts. I have access to a beautiful Kemble piano and a variety of synths inc: Prophet Rev 2, Juno 106, Moog Grandmother, Nord Stage 2, Bass Station, Jen SX1000 and Modular Synth array.
