Just now i’m enjoying the Sun in Valencia, Spain and the teaching here at the Berklee summer program - thanks to all those who helped with the fundraising to get me here! I’ll post more but for now enjoy some Night in Tunisia from the floating stage on Friday in the very cool City of Arts & Sciences (photos here).
Great memories from Love Supreme this year - seeing bands like Snarky Puppy, Gregory Porter, Earth, Wind & Fire and meeting DJ Nigel Williams from JazzFM who was so supportive in letting me play live on air! There’s some footage below and it was a really good festival and a great experience. Thankyou JazzFM!!!

2013 was a huge year for me with winning the Mayor of London Big Busk and lots of performing including playing on Jazz FM and happy that I got a distinction in my ABRSM Grade 8 Saxophone as well. So now i’m making music at home, working on some grooves in Ableton and playing over them using my new clip-on mic. I’ll be posting some tracks online in the future.
The Skills Show Welcome Dinner 2013 hosted by Caroline Flack in the massive Birmingham LG Arena at the NEC.
It was big, spectacular and the audience were friendly - I hope I managed to entertain them. Amazing dressing room with a chocolate selection!!
Thanks so much for the opportunity! - Sam
