You probably know me from my appearances on TV and radio talking about music and how it works when it's telling stories. I am a freelance composer, writer and musician and after forty years in the business, I still earn my living from what I produce and where I play. I am touring more than I was, but big projects are much harder to come by, and the one thing I don't have is time to move forward as a composer by writing new music and music projects in fields I haven't tried before. I have embarked on a musical, which I hope to have written within the year, I am writing a new album and have a big new orchestral piece introducing the instruments of the orchestra which I hope to launch next year. If you fancy helping me to have the time to complete these major projects please consider slipping a few quid my way, and I promise that I will be beavering away to get these projects written and in front of an audience within the next two years. And I might add, I'm just one of thousands of freelance creatives who could use your help, so if you fancy putting your money behind somebody else, that's absolutely fine with me!!
