A b o u t m e . . .
I sing and make music in London, UK.
Having discovered the world of music through singing in my school choir, I went on to sing in a number of operas and recordings as a young boy. At the same time I also played in bands, and spent a lot of time as a teenager busking around London with my friend Patrick Milne. While studying music and singing in the choir at St John’s College, Cambridge, I focused mostly on writing about contemporary music, writing dissertations about The Magnetic Fields and Ariel Pink.
I felt like I needed a bit of a break from the world of classical singing and started making music a couple of years ago with Matt Huxley, in a duo we went on to call Strange Boy. Eventually I found myself back in the world of choral singing and founded the choir, Shards, at first for live shows at the Barbican and then for a number of recording projects with the Erased Tapes label. I am heavily involved in writing and producing the music Shards and Strange Boy make, as well as the performance too, or course.
In 2019 we will release the debut Shards album and make a new Strange Boy record with our friend Nico Muhly. I am also working on the debut record for Italian electronic duo Mind Against, and making an arrangement for The King’s Singers.
