Writing songs is just about my favourite thing to do.

I recently recorded my first EP of original songs, to be released in autumn 2019.

I’ve written numerous songs for The Swingles. Grammy-winning jazz vocalist Kurt Elling performed my song The Thaw on The Swingles’ album Yule Songs vol. II. Unmade, from our album Folklore, won a CARA award for Best Folk/World Song. And in 2017 I co-wrote (with Rolfe Kent and Joanna Goldsmith-Eteson) A Little Change In The Weather for the end credits of Alexander Payne’s film Downsizing.

Zig Zag Birds is how I channel an intense love for classic sunshine pop and elaborate middle 8s. Our album Cuckoo Heart was released in 2017.

My songwriting workshop Beating The Blank Page has been a hit at festivals including the London A Cappella Festival (UK), SoJam (USA), Zimriya (Israel), Vocalmente (Italy) and Domaine Forget Vocal Jazz Camp (Canada).
