Writing songs is just about my favourite thing to do.
I’ve written or co-written numerous songs for The Swingles, including this one, this one and this one. I’m incredibly honoured that the Grammy-winning jazz vocalist Kurt Elling sings one of my songs, The Thaw, on The Swingles’ album Yule Songs vol. II. And I recently 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 new film Downsizing.
I’ve taught a songwriting workshop, Beating The Blank Page, at festivals including SoJam (USA), Zimriya (Israel), Vocalmente (Italy), Domaine Forget Vocal Jazz Camp (Canada) and the London A Cappella International Summer School (UK).
