The Grand Tour

I’m very excited to have spent the past few months scoring some of Clarkson, Hammond & May’s new Amazon show The Grand Tour with Rage Music. As a long-standing fan of the trio, it’s been a blast to write for.

The opening episode set the record as Amazon Prime's most streamed programme, and new episodes are being made available every Friday (three episodes out so far) - trust me, there are plenty more hilarious antics and amazing films to come.

Famous Grouse

I've joined forces once again with Rage Music and The Leith Agency to score two commercials for The Famous Grouse. The first ad ('Perfectly Balanced') features an orchestral score from me, complete with cello from Peter Gregson. The second ('Smooth') features a much sparser track with Andrew Smith on violin & viola.

You can watch both ads now by heading over to the Work page.

Funky Jazzy Beats

My first production music album for Soho Production Music 'Funky Jazz Beats' is being released shortly. Had a great time writing and recording this last year - the album features Tom Walsh on trumpet as well as guitars from Aaron Steinberg. You can take a listen to a couple of tracks by clicking the 'listen' button on the right of this page.
