Stand Proud

In April, I did a session of covers with my good friend and talented singer/producer Neeta Sarl (of Polaroid 85)and drummer/percussionist Steve Barnegren. This is the first track we are releasing. It’s a cover of a tune by the up-and-coming artist Jono McCleery who is certainly worth checking out. This is ‘Stand Proud’.

Recent adventures

London is very wet. This morning London is very, very wet. The inevitable conclusion of which is that I have decided to reminisce about drier times and drier places. Here are a few pictures from my trips to Combret, Bodrum and Southwold where I have been lucky enough to perform in the last few weeks.

Teardrop

Here’s the final video from the session I did at Surrey University with Clement Rooney in April. ‘Teardrop’ by Massive Attack.

Moritzburg Chamber Prize

Whilst I was on the Moritzburg Festival Academy in Gemany, it transpired that one of the chamber concerts was also a competition, with the audience as the jury! I performed the first and second movements of Shotakovich’s glorious second piano trio with the very talented Samuel Justitz (cello) from Switzerland and Ho Jeong Lee (piano) from South Korea. We beat off some really tough competition to steal first prize which was a very nice surprise! I was also interviewed before our concert at the Konzerthaus Berlin by a journalist from Deutsche Welle for a rather interesting article:
