Writing songs is just about my favourite thing to do.
I’ve written or co-written numerous songs for The Swingles. I was honoured to have my song The Thaw performed by Grammy-winning jazz vocalist Kurt Elling on The Swingles’ album Yule Songs vol. II. And in 2017 I co-wrote (with Rolfe Kent and Joanna Goldsmith-Eteson) A Little Change In The Weather, which The Swingles recorded for the end titles of Alexander Payne’s film Downsizing.
My songwriting workshop Beating The Blank Page has been well-received at festivals including SoJam (USA), Zimriya (Israel), Vocalmente (Italy), Domaine Forget Vocal Jazz Camp (Canada) and the London A Cappella International Summer School (UK).
