I’ve just finished work on the mix for a new song written with Arcelia singer/songwriter Gavin Alexander. It’s a catchy little number with a retro feel. You can have a listen to the song which is called “Give Me A Reason” on the Production Work page of the site. This is the first of hopefully many collaborations with Gavin. Time to get some placements!
I’m very pleased to announce that Dinopaws was nominated for a kids BAFTA! The ceremony was on Sunday the 23rd of November. Unfortunately we missed out on the win but heart congratulations goto “Sarah and Duck”
I’ve done a little arranging work for my friend Dan Arnold who’s father recently passed away to cancer. He has released the track “Down by the cherry tree” on iTunes as a charity single, with all proceeds going to cancer research.
There is an article about Harry Arnold in the Mirror here

I’ve just finished mixing and mastering the live album “Brown Bear’s Pic Nic” taken from various live gigs in 2014. I’ve been a member of the band for 4 years now and it’s really a blast. Recent appearances with the include the Cambridge Rock Festival and Danfest at the musician in Leicester.

In July I finished work on Dinopaws the brand new CGI children’s animation series. I composed the incidental music for 24 episodes. The fantastic Sandy Nuttgens and Alex Parsons handled the other eps. The show is currently being shown in CBeebies on weekday mornings and also in 10 other territories worldwide. You can have a look anytime via the BBC iPlayer or have a look at the videos below.
I’ve recently returned from conducting the limelight orchestra for the third annual Nottingham rocks gig at the theatre royal.
As ever, the were four artists/bands, each performing 5 songs, all of which I had to arrange for the artists and the orchestra. In previous years I’ve worked with artists such as Indiana, Saint Raymond, Amber Run and Natalie Duncan. This year it was the turn of The Afterdark Movement, Noah, Shelter Point and Joel Baker. All very different but all great artists and songwriters.
