Nice Music If You Like Smiling

Together with the amazing Ben Castle and Dan Teper I’ve recently written and produced a new Library music album for Universal Music entitled The Bizarre Bazaar.

It’s an eccentric assortment of daft and catchy tunes. Ocarinas, penny whistles, jaw-harps, ukuleles, melodicas, recorders and clarinets, accompanied by toy pianos, farfisas, accordions, mouth trumpets and actual bells and whistles all blend together to stir up a brew of tasty idiocy.

Taking Spike Jones and His City Slickers and Carl Stalling’s music from the Looney Tunes cartoons as our starting points, we jam-packed it with unusual and memorable melodies with plenty of unexpected detours thrown in along the way.

Developing Your Creative Practice

I’ve been awarded a DYCP grant from the Arts Council to help further my musical adventures. I’m extremely grateful for this award and looking forward to learning new skills and producing interesting new work. Rock on!

Killer Turtles

Ali and I thought Adamski’s ‘Killer’ had a peculiar similarity to The Turtles’ ‘Happy Together’, so now they are. Happy together.

It’s Christmaaaas!

Ali and I were asked to perform at the Marie Curie Christmas Carol concert (lots of nice pictures HERE). It was a lovely evening in Southwark Cathedral and we serenaded them with versions of Last Christmas and Merry Xmas. I even crow-barred a nose flute solo in there. Ho ho ho!

Merry Xmas (with Canticum)
