I've been a busy professional bass player for all of my working life, firstly with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, and then with every orchestra and TV company in Scotland, as well as conducting choirs, bands, and theatre shows. I've also written music for radio, television, and for many album recordings. Recently I decided to devote all my time to writing music: a short opera of mine was recently performed at Carnegie Hall, New York, and some of my choral pieces are to be premiered in Scotland in April, 2014.
I am currently developing some new music theatre shows, two of which are under consideration for performance in Scotland and New York, and a third, tango based opera, which is scheduling for Carnegie Hall, New York for autumn 2014.
I have my own distinctive voice as a composer, and write in many different styles: classical, contemporary classical, rock, and jazz.
Unique traits: professionalism, experience, and determination...
