BOOM at Berklee Valencia

This is my tack Boom! - the full version here with some shots of me at the Berklee Valencia campus this Summer. Special thanks to Co-writer and producer Peter John Vetesse and Fraser Kennedy. Watch out for the radio version as an online download on its way..

I had an amazing time at Valencia. I have built new friendships internationally with musicians from all over the world. I also enjoyed getting taught by some amazing teachers and faculty members from Berklee Boston and around the globe.

This teaching has definitely helped my learning and will continue to help me for a long time. Valencia was beautiful itself and I really had a great time on the beaches and eating paella everyday with my friends!

I explored the cultures and local music like Flamenco while listening to and playing with the diverse amount of word cultures from the students around me at Berklee Valencia.

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.
