Growing up in Poole I immersed myself in music, performing my own songs on the local gig scene and singing in various choirs. I read Music at Cambridge University as the first choral scholar at Downing College and began singing as a freelance singer and teacher after working at PRS for Music. I’ve been teaching online over the past year and started posting my singing and theory tips onto TikTok, Twitter and YouTube. My recent Top 10 videos have amassed over 5 million views over various platforms.
As a freelance singer I regularly perform around the UK and internationally with Truly Medley Deeply at a huge number of events ranging from high-end weddings to large corporate functions. Following a nationwide search, I was a member of Gareth Malone’s Voices and performed at the Royal Variety Show, Classic Brit Awards, multiple TV appearances and a sold-out UK tour. With my own group, The Harbour, we appeared live on BBC’s The One Show as well as many festivals around the UK, recording our EP at Air Studios. My session singing work has been featured on adverts for Waitrose, Sky Movies, Clydesdale Bank and GoCompare with recording taking place at many top London studios including Abbey Road and Angel studios. I have sung on recordings ranging from Sir Paul McCartney, Tom Chaplin to Katherine Jenkins. Some of the high profile artists I have provided backing vocals for include The Rolling Stones at their 50th anniversary concert and for Electric Light Orchestra’s reunion at Hammersmith Apollo.
I’m in high demand as a singing, piano and Music Theory teacher for ABRSM and Trinity as well as an accompanist for performances and festivals. This freelance tutoring work extends to preparing singers for auditions and hosting many Peak Productions musical theatre galas. As an arranger I worked with The Gala Ensemble on their debut album for SONY BMG which reached #1 on the Classical chart. Other composing/arrangement work includes a choral arranging for the film Kingsman: The Golden Circle, writing instrumental music for At Home with Sarah‘s meditation series, and composing the soundtrack to an award winning play ‘Dandelion Heart’. My songwriting garnered acclaim when I was named a BBC Young Songwriter of the Year and I have been writing with many up and coming artists based at PowerStudio London.
