Summer 2017

2017 – I’ve been getting my mix on. It has been very gratifying shaping up 4 great works of art by some of my close friends and peers – Richard SpavenAndrew McCormack, Phil Peskett and Fini Bearman

Look out for these exceptional works from progressive uk musicians

 

Richard Spaven – The Self  out now ft. Jordan Rakei

also watch out for an upcoming Boiler room session with the Spaven Trio

 

Andrew McCormack – Graviton out now ft Eska / Shabaka Hutchings / Anton Eger and me!

 

Fini Bearman – Burn The Boat  out now

Phil’s album is pending a release date. More on that later this year

 

Steven Wilson (of Porcupine Tree) has made a great new LP, produced by Paul Stacey and with myself on Jeremy Stacey on kit! I think the results are pretty special. Listen here

This same rhythm section plus the mighty Jason Rebello have also been recording new material for the Unidentified Flying Project. Somewhere there lies a hard drive with some incredible playing that will hopefully be released soon.

I also had the honour of playing a few shows with a long-time hero of mine Nik Kershaw. Honestly – the greatest, engaging,  harmonically intricate music with a real clear sense of melody. I was over the moon.

I have also been getting stuck into some string arranging with the help of the new Dorico software which is going to radically change the way i work with notation. I’m very pleased with it so far

Look out for my upcoming gigs with the great Parisian pianist Eric LegniniJacob CollierRichard Spaven, Graviton, Soul Family and even Will Young!
