Together Apart is my latest composition. It’s a simple blues song, infused with a reggae rhythm, whose lyrics reflect ‘where we are’ post 2020 – embodying a clarion call to keep the faith and stay strong in these uncertain times. If you’re interested in singing/teaching it do get in touch – firstname.lastname@example.org Click here to listen to Together Apart.
Looking for a choir to join? I’m running both of my choirs,
Hullabaloo Quire and Raise the Roof Choir, online. You can find out more about each of these by clicking the highlighted text.
If it’s an hour of soul-lifting, spine-tingling music you’re after tune in to
Sponsored by Vox Pop on Radio Reverb. Hullabaloo Quire. Vox Pop is a celebration of our glitteringly diverse and magnificent choral world, here in Brighton and Hove – and beyond!
The show explores why people sing, through the history, science, anthropology and philosophy of community song. There are special guests from the choral world, including other community choirs and fantastic a cappella music from all over the globe, live singing in the studio – and lots more!
here to listen to February’s choral cornucopia of sound. The show features an interview with song and theatre maker Helen Chadwick. Helen and I are long time collaborators and chums, and we chat about all matters choral, including Helen’s early work, the origins of Sing for Water and the Spring workshop we’ll be running next month.
March’s Vox Pop will broadcast on
Saturday March 13th
, and I would like to invite anyone with choral news to
Get In Touch and Tell Me About It!

Singing together is a great social and creative leveller, community singing is good for our mind, body and soul; it supports our respiration, releases endorphins and lowers cortisol, it strengthens bonds and forges new connections and it nurtures our creativity and opens us to rhythm, roots and resonance…singing is our birthright!
Ways you can work with me
I work with community choirs, singing groups, theatre groups and corporations, mainly in the field of a cappella harmony singing, but I also run workshops and courses in group composition, improvisation, singing with cross rhythms and percussion, stagecraft and group movement for simple performance technique.
