I’m a bit of a musical chameleon and I enjoy working in a wide range of musical styles. On the commercial side, I write and record tracks for various production music companies and work as a media composer. I also work as an arranger/producer for singers and songwriters in my home studio.
I’m a music graduate of the University of Southampton (1980) and over the years I’ve performed and toured as a keyboard player with various pop/soul/funk/jazz bands including Ronnie Laws, Light Of The World, Yes/No People. I also formed my own Jazz Fusion group MT Hedz and we released an album in 2012.
Writing for the concert hall (classical) is quite another discipline and although there can be a certain amount of overlap in techniques, I feel the mindset is different. Still, as Berg said to Gershwin, “music is music!”
The videos below are of my Toccata which I wrote some time ago but have recently had published (it is a midi performance here) and an extract from a gig in 2012 with my band.
