I am a professional artist with a diverse background in professional music. Over the past 15 years, my career in music has taken me to stages across North America, Europe and Africa engaging in a wide variety of dynamic performances in countries across the globe including appearances on BBC1 The Voice UK.
As well as working on original projects I have had the privilege of collaborating with top-flight songwriters such as seasoned professionals with 35+ years of industry experience like Jeff Franzel (20 top 10 singles worldwide) as well as up and coming artists like Able Faces (circa. 5M streams) and Christian Burrows (circa. 12M streams). These collaborations include writing on publishing briefs for international artists like Stray Kids - South Korea, Rachael Fahim - Australia, VICTORIA - Bulgaria, and Vsion - China.
FOLK & COUNTRY
Academically, I hold both a bachelors degree (BMus (Hons) First Class) and a masters degree (MMus) in popular music from the Royal Northern College of Music. I have conducted research on the transatlantic migration of music and culture and its impact on the presentation of Irish traditional music. Furthermore, I have written a research proposal for a Ph.D., focusing on Contemporary Commercial Songwriting and composing to a creative brief, exploring innovative methods of communication for achieving the desired musical outcome.
It is a great ambition of mine to help create opportunity for professional creatives and I am dedicated to nurturing future talent in the industry. I currently serve as a Lecturer and Examiner of Voice on an undergraduate degree program in performing arts at the Institute for Contemporary Theatre in Manchester and as the Managing Director of Popcast Ltd, a music services business, I oversee a range of offerings that deliver projects in Live Performance, Music Education and Recording & Production.
