Biography:

Born in London, I have lived and travelled across the UK, Antarctica and North America when working as an earth scientistand now call Scotland home. I've had diverse musical experiences along the way, reflected my recordings In Arden (2019), Discover and Endure (2019) & Even Song (2015) which re-invent jazz, folk, rock and classical music.

My work has been received well across jazz, folk and roots genres on radio stations and in magazines. Reviewers have heard echos of Grant Green, Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell, Ralph Towner, Dean McPhee, Dick Gaughan & Steve Reich.

My challenge is to market music that crosses genres from a relatively unknown name in a solo instrument format. Agents and venues seem to be polarised into distict groupings such as folk, Americana, jazz, classical etc. Please help me connect with the right people in the right way to connect me to the right audiences beyond my home turf of Aberdeenshire. I'd like to achieve:

- Growth in live audience - to >1000 p/a
- Growth in album and tune sales - to >£10000 p/a
- Breaking even on studio and CD reproduction deficit (>£10000)
- Building a positive feedback loop of audience feedback, sales and gig bookings

Visual artist
Painting and Collage
Biography:

I am a visual artist originally from Berlin but have called Scotland home for nearly three decades. I love colour and have a strong connection with the surreal and the semi abstract. I use this approach to express ambiguous and manifold thoughts and meanings. An element of surprise is always good to lead the mind into different and new diretions. My collages and paintings are often concerned with political/societal issues and sometimes with spiritual/philosophical ones. Occasionally I venture into small sculptural projects and also enjoy experimenting with recycled/ found objects. I am currently based in Alloa.
Besides art I also love to travel.
