Happy Accidents

My latest EP is now available on all streaming services and on my Bandcamp page.

Happy Accidents was born in a Facebook group dedicated to a wonderful comunity of musicians. We met virtually every two weeks to chat, listen and offer support. The goal was to release an ep on the 1st of December 2022. We kept a diary using one of the posts and this is where the EP title originated.

It was a fantastically freeing experience with a wonderfully supportive bunch of people.

I’d do it again in a heartbeat!

My latest EP is now available on all streaming services and on my Bandcamp page.

Below are links to my music on streaming platforms. If you want to listen to my showreel, the Soundcloud link takes you straight there.


I grew up in the North but live in the South. I’ve been in bands since I was fourteen and have toured and recorded since then.

I’ve written music for film, tv, advertising, theatre and the web in all kinds of styles and different production types from drama, animation and sports to documentaries, game and cookery shows. I even wrote a theme for a toy bionic bear for the soap Emmerdale but I’m probably best known for my work on the Doctor Who spin-off series The Sarah Jane Adventures and the CBBC show Wizards vs Aliens.

Over the past couple of years I've written the score to the feature film Seagull,  two animations for BBC New Creatives (including the award winning Intensive) two videos for The Guardian newspaper, the documentary My Life: On The Fast Track for CBBC, released an album and an EP of original material and most recently worked with my brother Sam on the BBC One reality game show The Traitors.

As well as composing I also do production, synth programming, session guitar work and mixing for other musicians.
