What Goes Around - by Dodson and Fogg
Composed, performed and recorded Flugelhorn parts. From the album Derring Do (Dodson and Fogg 2013)
Keyboard ability: Expert
Trumpet ability: Expert
Since my first gig with an 11-piece Soul and Motown band at the age of 13, I've enjoyed a variety of projects, ranging from both Indian and traditional church weddings, to large scale outdoor events and festivals 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" and performed in the theatre. I perform with classical guitarist Steve Gardiner in Take Five Duo, playing flugelhorn and keyboard and I have written and recorded 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.
