Bespoke Music

About

I am a Liverpool-based composer writing both bespoke and library music. My library music is published by leading labels such as Ninja Tune, Intervox, Gothic Storm's Toolworks and Cute Music, and regularly heard worldwide on BBC, Channel 4, Channel 5, Disney Channel, ESPN, Fox Network, REELZ and in TV and radio commercials. My musical education began as a Chorister at the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, where I studied piano and music theory from the age of 7, going on to tour in Spain and Japan, performing in the première of Paul McCartney’s first classical work ‘The Liverpool Oratorio’ in 1991.

I also play guitar, mandolin and violin, and have composed, arranged and performed original music for theatre productions, as well as composing the score and sound design for several short films, and contributed music to the score of the feature film 'Eyes Wide Open in 2018. I am currently the musical director and composer for the independent feature musical film 'Perfectly Frank'. In 2016, I completed an MA in Professional Media Composition at ThinkSpace Education (University of Chichester).
