Updates

Soundcloud updated

I have just updated my soundcloud with as many decently-recorded pop choir arrangements of mine that I can find on my computer to give examples of what kind of material I have available, both at www.onlinesheetmusic.com and on this website.

Jay Norton @ Pheasantry

I’m about 3 months behind, posting this, but just saw it while perusing Jase Tebble‘s website.

Post ‘The Voice UK’, Jay Norton did an intimate gig at Pizza Express’ ‘The Pheasantry’ venue in Kings Road, Chelsea, backed by myself on piano and Jase on guitar. It was a lovely gig, and Pizza Express have documented it. Enjoy!

Charley McCartan

One of the singers Jase and I have been working with over the past year is stepping up a gear and is beginning to get out there and promote her work. Here is her most recent cover that she put up on youtube a couple of weeks ago, backed by Jase and Anya. See her project page on this website for more info…

wgs austria tour

On 15th July 2012, Wirral Grammar Schools’ swing band, samba band and Together Pop Choir set off for a week-long tour in Salzburg, Austria. It was the most fantastic week. The Head of Music, Mrs Townsend, said at the end of it: ‘we went away with three groups and came back as one’, and this sums the whole week up for me.

It was my final involvement with the school and my beloved Together Pop Choir, as I am moving on in September; in this light, it was an extremely emotional trip and I am filled with fabulous memories. I established the choir 5 years ago in 2007, and since then we have enjoyed some fantastic experiences together: we reached X Factor Bootcamp in 2008, sang at the Liverpool Echo Arena with Sense Of Sound Singers at Star Wars Live in 2010 and sang at the Hollyoaks Annual Ball in 2011, amongst many other amazing feats. It has been awesome, and I am very sad to be moving on. Together Pop Choir, I salute you and will never forget you.

The attached video is a beautifully-put-together piece that sums up the tour. Thanks to Mhairi Stewart.
