My musical The Rise and Fall of Vinnie & Paul was a Best New Musical finalist for the MTI Mentorship Award 2023/24. One of the songs from it, Wheatfield with Crows, was nominated for the Stiles+Drewe Best New Song Prize 2022.

I have another completed musical, Force Ten Gayle, a showbiz adoption story, and another in development, The Mayfly Man, all about a boy who ages from birth to death in the space of a single day. This show is being workshopped by British Youth Music Theatre in summer 2024.

If you need a composer/lyricist, or just a lyricist, do get in touch: Happy to use Skype to work with someone abroad if need be.

I’m looking to work on an original piece, or one based on something out of copyright (i.e. no rights issues).

You can hear more songs on my YouTube channel.

As well as MMD, I’m a member of the Book Music & Lyrics workshop.

Thanks for reading!
