I am an experienced session violinist, having previously recorded for television commercials, chart hits, film soundtracks and CDs. I am happy to arrange or improvise a violin part and am able to record remotely for your project.
As a performer, I work with orchestras, often performing with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and I am solo violinist for the Moth shows in the Union Chapel and the Bridge Theatre.
I have been a part of UK and European tours including Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds, pop artist James with Orchestra of the Swan, Karl Jenkins Orchestra and the most fun of all ABBA the Show. I have performed in London’s top venues including The Shard, The O2 Arena, Wembley Arena and The Royal Albert Hall. As a chamber musician, I have worked with a string quartet onboard Saga Ruby and given solo recitals in venues including St. Martin-in-the-Fields, the Foundling Museum, Southwark Cathedral and two concert halls in Japan.
I enjoy improvising and here’s what happened at The Vortex one evening when I was paired up with a pianist. We didn’t discuss what we were going to play and neither of us knew how it would turn out!
