Excited to release the second full length album from my live electronic trio Concrete Disco and to celebrate with a launch party and at Zigfrid von Underbelly in Hoxton. The album brings original vocals to the fore, whilst lyrically grappling with the modern experience - from fake news, isolationism and selfie culture; to identity, justice and inequity. https://concretedisco.bandcamp.com/

Pleased to have revisited this work by Ambreen Razia, (which I first worked on in its theatrical incarnation) as it is released as an Audible book. Still engaging and visceral material to work with, exploring the struggle of a young muslim woman in Hounslow dealing with the pressures of conflicting cultures. https://www.audible.co.uk/pd/The-Diary-of-a-Hounslow-Girl-Audiobook/B07KWCCZFK

I am excited to be working on the soundtrack to a short film written and directed by Kathryn O'Reilly, who also plays one of the two main roles. It's a 90's throwback comedy short and great fun to write for. I just received the footage to work with today so gonna get stuck in this week!

I have started a youth band practice at My Neighbours the Dumplings restaurant in Clapton and finished up for the term with their first live performance! A set of 4 songs was well received by a rapturous audience, who demanded an encore of Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit
