Karl Morgan – www.karlmorgan.net

is currently recording his debut album. I have been co- writing tracks with Karl and producing tracks for his forthcoming album.

Katy Lied – www.katylied.com

I have co-written two tracks on the forthcoming Katy Lied album ‘Winter Lightning’

Musical

I am still working on the musical with Allyson Summerhayes, it’s taking longer than expected, due to the variety of other current projects, but should be finished soon!

Summertime

I wrote the track ‘Runaway’ which was featured in the film ‘Summertime’ produced by Tornado films. Summertime is a new, modern film musical with a wholly original screen story, songs and musical score that captures the spirit and updates the traditions of folk-operas such as Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess fusing it with the grit and substance of contemporary fables such as Dancer in the Dark.

Light Films – www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXsW36vhDnE

Allyson Summerhayes and I co-wrote the title track, ‘Stay’ for the short film ‘Potential’.

I will post some more news soon,

Take Care x
