Film / TV / Video

  • I had the great privilege of playing drums for Sam Coe on a closed video session conducted under COVID restrictions at EPIC Studios just before Christmas. The video shoot was a pre-record of a live performance for the Americana Music Association‘s January awards show night, which this year was an entirely online event.

    With the AMA Awards now having been broadcast, EPIC Studios have published the full length performance on their YouTube channel this week, and I am very excited to be able to share that with you here. I was really proud to get to be a part of this, and I think the look of the video and the sound we achieved with the drums and with the band overall is absolutely first class.

  • On Friday night I was honoured to have live versions of two of my songs included in an online streamed performance for World Stage Live. The gig was broadcast on Facebook and YouTube, and included three other artists’ performances, in the UK and in Kenya.

    The full videos of my performances are available here, for anybody who missed it.

  • The music video for the title track of my new EP, When The Autumn Comes is available in full on YouTube now. Shot at the Anteros Arts Foundation in Norwich in 2015 (shortly after the song the song was written) with photography by Boo Marshall Photography and Dynamic Dog Productions, this was a really fun video to make which captures the tone and mood of the song brilliantly – and I am extremely excited to finally get to share it with everybody ahead of the EP’s release date on 3rd October.

  • A video (and Spanish language interview!) of the Side-By-Side concert, featuring players from the Sistema Europe Youth Orchestra alongside El Sistema’s Sinfónica Juvenil de Caracas (and me) playing Ritmos Ciganos at Milan’s famous La Scala.

  • A short video clip of Willowspin playing the Burns Night céilidh at Norwich High School for Girls.

  • On a whim, I wrote a World Cup single to complain about Norwich City goalkeeper John Ruddy being left out of the England squad, called John Ruddy Would’ve Saved That.  My friend Tyler convinced me to make a very silly music video, dancing on the dunes at Great Yarmouth beach, so here it is!

    John Ruddy Would’ve Saved That is available on iTunes, or on YouTube.

  • Music video for ‘Electronic Boy’ by Flaviyake.

  • I am delighted to have been invited back to Pellafort Press this coming Wednesday (20th November) to play the piano at the opening night of a brand new exhibition – ‘Explosive‘ – by London-based Russian painter Natalia Avdeeva.

    The exhibition itself will run for two weeks (20th November – 5th December).  As well as being a showcase for Natalia’s wonderful paintings, the display will feature a short video about Natalia and her personal approach to creating her artwork.  In collaboration with Natalia and videographer Sophie Shaw, I have contributed an all-original soundtrack for this video, written to capture the energy and vitality of Natalia’s way of working, and her passion and vibrance as an artist.

    For access to the opening evening of the exhibition on 20th November, please see details here.

    Interested to know how drumsticks are made?

    This short video from the guys at Pellwood is well worth a look…

  • First video recording with the Jimmy Roe Trio, shot live at EPIC Studios in Norwich.

    As ever, many thanks to my friends at Carrera Drums, Pellwood Drumsticks and Anglia Drum Centre for supplying all the gear I am using in the shoot.
