Composer & Arranger
Most recently I have been working on the new Dolly Parton musical "9 to 5" which has now opened at The Savoy Theatre to great reviews let alone from the Queen of Country, Dolly Parton, herself! Immediately before this I did the new 8 piece arrangements for the RSC version of "The Wizard of Oz" based on the movie of the same name.
I have been lucky enough to be working on many more shows re-arranging them which currently includes "Fame" and "Little Miss Sunshine" and have already been asked to work on a few workshops this year.
Here are some of the other professional shows I have also arranged:
Little Shop of Horrors
Sin and Salvation
The Snow Gorilla
RTT Forbidden Planet
I have been writing since I was a boy and have written for many styles from Pop to Musical Theatre and written for Film, TV, Theatre and Radio.
'The Sound of Musicals' is a TV show I was very proud to be a part of. As well as being associate MD and being principal arranger I also wrote the opening credits.
Other shows I have composed for include:
Dating Hell (Sky 1)
National Lottery (BBC 1)
Beauty and the Beast
Phantom of the P'Opera
I was asked to write all incidental music for a dating show for MTV/Channel 5 called 'Singled Out' which ran for several series.
Polka Dot Shorts and Wheels on the Bus were massive children's hits on TV and when it was decided to put it on the stage I was asked to write the music for the shows. Polka Dot Shorts did 7 tours and Wheels on the Bus did 4 tours. I really tried to be contemporary but all songs were hopefully catchy and also, very importantly had an educational element.
Please contact me if you would like to hire any of the scores listed above plus the thousands of bits of music I have, or if you have any transcribing or transposing you would like to be done.
