I am a full time professional trumpet player with over 25 years of live experience in genres including Pop, Swing, Musical Theatre, Ska, 2-Tone and Reggae, as well as Folk, Classical and Indian! Working with Motown Act “The Contours”, Ken Knox's "Chairmen Of The Board" "Chris Bevington And Friends" blues band, professional tributes to Madness and The specials, and others, I have toured theatres, music venues and festivals extensively and have written and recorded on various projects both in the studio and remotely.

Whilst I am a proficient reader I am experienced in learning parts by ear and performing from memory. I am confident improvising solos and perform with sensitivity to style, detail and consistency.

Working with trusted and talented musicians means I can arrange anything from a horn section to a full band to suit your tour or recording.

I work with professional specification industry equipment including Yamaha, AKG and Roland, and have reliable transport provision.

I also play keyboards and can work with an existing band, as a solo player or with classical guitarist Steve Gardiner (Take Five Duo).


I am a Bachelor of Arts, and have a Diploma in Music, Grade 8 in trumpet performance (ABRSM), and I am a student of Portuguese Trumpeter Sergio Frade.
