New things in store for 2016

Happy New Year!

2016 is looking to be an exciting year with lots of new projects and challenges. I have a busy start to the year with Partikel. We will be playing a number of dates throughout the UK from January - May in the lead up to heading into the studio to record our 4th album. Check here for the Partikel tour schedule or below is our tour poster. 

I am also looking forward to being involved in many new projects this year including my brother Samuel's new sextet. We used to play together a lot when we were younger so I'm very much looking forward to this. We will be doing some playing around the UK and working towards recording the album this summer. I will be joining violinist David La Page's new "Diving Bell" project where we will be recording and then touring concert venues and Aquariums throughout the UK. The project will be raising money for the Marine Conservation Society. 

I've been a member of drummer Ollie Howell's band for the past few years who was awarded a grant from "Sky Arts" to record his second album which is pretty much done and due for release later this year.  We recorded this at Real World Studios about a year ago, the album has a beautiful sound and there is also a fair bit of post production that has been added to the music. 

I'm lucky to have been working in pianist Benet McLean's band for a long time now and he has just finished putting together his latest album which is also due out this year which I'm very excited about. The results are absolutely epic!

Thanks for reading!
