HI all, and happy new year!

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.

At the King’s Cross Square opening carnival..

Imperial Wharf Jazz Festival

Last week played at the Imperial Wharf Jazz Festival in Chelsea. I did 3 short sets and thoroughly enjoyed it. Good to catch the other bands and the audience was very friendly. Thanks for inviting me!


The standard of the finalists was incredibly high, making it a Herculean task for the judges to select the young winner. It underlines the amazing talent there is in London and I wish big success to Sam and everyone that took part.
