Musician

I am a trumpet and keyboard player based in North Staffordshire and happy to travel throughout the UK for live gigs, theatre work and recording sessions. I have recording equipment enabling me to create parts for your music remotely and I'm happy to collaborate on tracks for royalties. I have more trumpets than could ever be useful and can travel with a rather retro Roland RD-170 Stage Piano.

Since taking the decision to work in music full time in 2009, I've enjoyed a fantastic variety of gigs and projects, ranging from both Indian and traditional church weddings, to large scale outdoor events performing with a ten piece tribute to "The Specials", and a smaller line up taking on the music of "Madness". I've also been involved with the big band backing the fabulous" Rat Pack Boys" at their theatre shows and private events, and have worked with the "Manchester Sing Out Choir". I run and perform with an exciting new self contained horn section act "Funky Motown Horns", and I have enjoyed writing and recording brass parts for the Dodson and Fogg albums, and with producer Krissi B and others.

Whilst I love playing the trumpet and keyboard live with a band or small group, I am also available to play solo keyboards as a background act tinkering away through dinner, or backing a singer.

I really enjoy creating and recording horn parts for other peoples songs and I welcome all approaches. For projects of this nature I'm usually happy to work for a royalty share.

I have transport and professional instruments and equipment and I approach all work with absolute professionalism - I love what I do and if the music isn't for me then I will stand down.
