Fuelled by a love of improvisation and a growing obsession for effects pedals, I have embarked on a solo project, blending acoustic sounds with interweaving electronic textures and moody soundscapes.
In 2019 I had the opportunity to perform this project at the Vortex in July, East London Jazz Festival in October and London Jazz Festival in November. During lockdown I had the opportunity to experiment extensively and made a few videos (below). In 2022 a run of solo gigs has seen me perform at Daylight Music in Bethnal Green, LUME at Hundred Years Gallery, Hoxton and Cafe Oto, Dalston.
The performance at Cafe Oto on 11th June was recorded, and on 18th July I released the whole live set on Luminous label:
