Welcome. I'm a classically-trained composer living in London. The links below take you to some of my music as a composer, performer, arranger or a combination of those. Watch this space for more. I hope you find something you enjoy.

I've included a YouTube link to my arrangement/re-arrangement of a Finnish tango song under the 'Watch My Videos' link above.

Listen to a live recording of Jonathan Powell playing 10.10.10 at St Anne's College, Oxford, on 17 January 2014:

As a vocalist, I have worked with Keith Johnson on several songs. He uses my voice/voices in his version of the Gershwin classic But Not For Me here:

And here, I sing backing vocals on his Helpless/March to the Scaffold:

I previously used MySpace for older work and will upload some of it elsewhere soon.

SOME PAST PERFORMANCES:

Richard Black played two of my piano pieces on 7 February 2015 at Schott Music's Recital Room, 48 Great Marlborough Street, London, including the first concert performance of When Autumn is Over.

Pianist Jonathan Powell played my piece 10.10.10 in New York (Spectrum) and Chicago (Columbia College) in November 2014.

Waka Hasegawa gave the London premiere and two other performances of 10.10.10 in the latter part of 2013.
