Rarely am I as pleased to announce a new release as I am now – this is such a beautiful record. Excited for it to meet the world.
I’m very pleased to be featured on this compilation from The Wire. It’s a previously-unreleased solo guitar track from quite early on the the Scene Memory II recording process.
Also, here’s an interview with Ben Hogwood for the wonderful Arcana. We went quite deep into compositional stuff, and happy memories of my teacher Steve Martland.
I’m delighted to announce the release of Scene Memory II.
Thanks to Figureight for releasing it, and to Buzz for the feature.
The record can be heard in all the usual places, and bought here.
There’s a new track out from my forthcoming record ‘Scene Memory II’. Thanks to Backseat Mafia for featuring it, here:
I am in the late stages of mixing the new record by the composer and qanun virtuoso Maya Youssef. It’s some of the most beautiful music I’ve ever heard, let alone worked on, so I feel very lucky!
There is a Kickstarter campaign to support her in touring the release – an endeavour that will encompass workshops with refugees across Europe. It is very worthy of support, so please visit here.
Anisa Sabiri’s documentary about musical traditions in Tajikistan, in which I make a brief appearance, is featured in The Calvert Journal.
And here is the new single from Palace:
Back in 2006 I made an electric guitar record called Scene Memory. Plenty of water under the bridge since then, but in the months after my solo tour of Siberia at the end of 2019 the follow-up gradually emerged. It’s coming out through Phantom Limb, who also worked on my duo record with Shahzad Ismaily last year, Visitations.
Thanks to Backseat Mafia for hosting the premiere.
