About Me

Based in Prague, I am an English singer, song-writer, writer, researcher, theologian and teacher with a particular passion for acoustic/jazz music. I work as a soloist as well as partnering with local musicians in various projects. One such partnership was with composer Daniel Kyzlink (as lyricist) for a work called The Rock Mass which was recently performed at the Mēstké divadlo Brno (Brno City Theatre) and previously by the Karlovy Vary Symphony Orchestra.
I love songs which have poetic and evocative lyrics, but for me, music has to groove as well - it has to move you in some way.
There are links here to some of the other projects I'm involved with, but the main purpose of this site is to encourage you to contact me and book me (or me + band) for a gig or workshop/seminar. Hope to hear from you, and thanks so much for visiting.

Great gig on Sunday - thanks!

Thanks to all who came to the gig at the Komunitni Centrum sv. Prokopa on Sunday - it was an great night. I love working with the trio because the music has lots of space and you can hear lots of detail, but at the same time there's real power when we're grooving together! What fun.
So thanks again for coming and making it a great night. The next event I'm involved with is a musicians' training day followed by a worship celebration in Prague on Saturday 9 November. There's more info on the Angel Mountain website. Hope to see you there!

If you were there, do leave a comment!
