You go to my head
and many more as well as popular Soul songs on demand.
Do you have different line-up options?
I have the option of playing solo, duo, trio, quartet or quintet with any of the following: singer, guitarist, bassist, pianist/keys, DJ, drums, percussion, trombone, saxophone and more classic strings.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I'm happy to adapt within reason and am always aware that events such as weddings can go differently as planned. As long as my time commitment is respected and there are provisions that can be made anything can be sorted in my opinion.
How much time do you need to set up?
Depending on how much equipment I need to bring between 20-40 minutes.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
I'm happy to chat through any specific pieces you might want and add them to my performance beforehand.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes I do. Whether it's all acoustic or with electronics, I have it covered.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Yes I'm happy to learn specific pieces, however, if they require a lot of preparation and therefore working hours before the event I might have to adapt my fee slightly to cover the work.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
I have a unique approach to jazz and improvisation and understand the atmosphere of an event very well.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Poplar Union, Cheltenham Festival, British Embassy in Guangzhou - China, Glastonbury Festival Truth Stage, La Seine Musicale in Paris, Festsaal Kreuzberg in Berlin, Sisyphos in Berlin, Privatclub in Berlin, Monarch in Berlin and many more.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Miles Davis, Billie Holiday, Jascha Heifetz, Zbigniew Seifert, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, Charlie Mingus, Henrik Schwarz and so many more.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Susheela Raman Ghost Gamelan at the Royal Festival Hall in 2018.

Personalised Music Message
Book me to create a unique music video for you to send to a friend as a gift. This could be a birthday message, first dance song for a wedding anniversary, or just your friend's favourite song to cheer them up.
I will be able to record a 30 minute solo set of violin, voice, synth and drum machine, filmed with an HD camera and properly mixed and mastered for submission! I'm also happy to incorporate specific songs as long as they work for my instrumentation.
I can produce a highly produced and personalised birthday video for your loved one. Please see the video for details. Price negotiable if you'd like a cover of an already existing song.
