As a composer, lyricist and keyboard player, the main locus of my activity is Schwa, a collaboration with multi-instrumentalist Richard Ormrod. Our work together began in 2012 with Scriptophilia and has so far resulted in a host of performances and three albums, BOUND AWAY (2013), NOW WE ARE SCHWA (2016), and THRESHOLD (with Jacqui Wicks, 2016). As a lyricist, I have worked with composers writing texts for operas, oratorios, musicals, and musical theatre. I have worked extensively with MUSIC IN PRISONS and with composer Hugh Nankivell leading songwriting workshops and courses for Opera North.
