NEw music : Cuts hair clay advert (Unofficial)

Here is a piece of music I wrote for the We Are Cuts advert promoting their TASTY NEW HAIR CLAY.

For the OFFICIAL advert they decided to go for something more funky, but they have very kindly allowed me to share my slightly moodier version with you. 🕵🏼‍♂️ 🎷

Shout out to Pete Dowland for directing this wicked advert, which features Tien Lebon , Isla Dowland , Pippa Brooks , Duke Brooks , Joe Brooks and more..

Another year, another Christmas commission, this time Peter Christian Gentlemen's Outfitters ‘The Spirit of Christmas’. There's bells, jubilance, fanfares, and Christmas cheer.. and hopefully gives you a warm feeling inside. Good tidings to one and all.

I was recently commissioned to write music for this video by Hive Associates & Exterion Media Director, promoting Exterion's new digital buses in London. The first of the buses here is used to promote the new Google Pixel 2 phone.

This is a short film by Elms Lesters Painting Rooms in Soho, London, documenting their trip to Beijing in April 2015, with the Dimensionalist Painter, Adam Neate.

'Bugler's Holiday' being performed at Christ's Hospital Boarding School in Horsham, West Sussex, on Sunday 4th March 2012 - Milo McKinnon, Matthew Coster, Freddy Wordsworth accompanied by the Christ's Hospital Concert Band, conducted by the BandMaster - Terry Whittingham. 

Leroy Anderson (1908-1975) composed this piece in 1954, and it is considered to be one of his most enduring classics, originally scored for Trumpet Trio and Orchestra.

Back in 2013 I was invited to play Trumpet on the soundtrack to the powerful independent film 'Warriors', which documents a group of young Maasai warriors in a remote region of Kenya, who formed a remarkable cricket team that went on to compete in London for the 'Last Man Stands World Championship'. They used the power and influence that they attained from the cricket, to campaign against FGM and early marriages for young girls within the Maasai Tribes in Kenya. My trumpet was used in numerous scenes throughout the film, including the credits at the end (unfortunately not in this trailer!).

Trio gig with Ewan Moore (Drums) and Sam Ingvorsen (Bass) performing here (on Thursday 15th of March 2018), my arrangement of Autumn leaves inspired by Ahmad Jamal's version of the tune off his album, Marseille, released in 2017.

I was asked to compose some music for the first in the Peter Christian Gentlemen's Outfitters video series 'Ask Blowers' with cricket legend Henry Blofeld, to promote their Panama Hats. For this first episode I thought I'd be a fool to not use some Bossa Brazilian Beats in an attempt to transport you to Panama for 3 minutes... Hope you enjoy !
