‘The Launch’, from ‘Pinnacle’, used as the music backing to build inspiring tension at the most critical moment of MasterChef Italia 2019 Final on Sky Uno, announcing Valeria as this years winner. A suitably epic moment for this track! You can check out the official MasterChef Facebook video via this link.
‘Pitch Side’, from my sport inspired TV Production Album ‘The Beautiful Game‘, aired today as part of BBC News ‘Sportsday’ coverage.
Currently in progress – a nine track album (with alternatives and stings) of beautiful, haunting fluid themes, composed to especially support emotionally charged storylines. Several of the tracks will feature Emma Harvey-Lawrence, who also performed on my video game soundtrack ‘Into Light’.

It’s December PRS distribution day & always enjoy seeing the worldwide TV syncs. This time including continued use on Married At First Sight Australia, NBC’s reality show The Riveras, Israeli thriller Hamidrasha & Portugese fantasy series Ministério do Tempo. All the way from the rural East Anglia!
Nice to hear several of my piano based pieces from ‘In Slow E-Motion’ are having frequent airtime across Sat. 1 in Germany. Sombre, atmospheric, beautifully sad themes, making them ideal for emotional based shows. Documentary series ‘Auf Streife – Die Spezialisten’ (‘On Patrol – The Specialists’) and ‘Klinik am Südring – Krankenhaus-Serie, D 2018’ (‘Clinics – The Hospital 2018’), are two such examples where my music is regularly heard as part of their soundtracks.
‘In Slow E-Motion’ is part of Adrenalin Sounds, and Warner/ Chappell Production Music in America.
Based in the UK its always nice to hear about my production music being used on TV series worldwide. Great to hear my work is proving popular on travel show Échappées Belles on France5, most recently on shows Chamonix & Colombia.
It was great to recently be invited by The Imaginarium for an extended interview, running through my game audio background and processes on ‘Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier’. Part one, which is around 45mins in length, was streamed live on Mixer on 15th October 2018, and is also available to watch on Youtube. Part two will follow later this week too.
Announcing a brand new epic and emotional album this is being written, track by track, in collaboration with Marcus Warner known for his ‘Africa’, ‘If Elephants Can Fly’ and ‘A Tale of Sea Dragons’ tracks; and albums Liberation, Oceans and 39 Seconds. We are aiming for a tentative album release of Christmas 2018, followed by a bespoke production music version in 2019. Check out our announcement trailer below:
