Musical Directing & Consultancy

A note on the Musical Director & Live Consultancy thing...

Often I’m privileged to be asked to take on the role of Musical Director, a part of my career enjoy very much.

My approach to this, is to realise the vision of the artist, management and label, in as streamlined approach as possible. 

Particularly when it comes to combining technology with live players...

My extensive experience in this, and my increasing production work, has now developed into a kind of 3rd party consultancy service as well.

Labels, Management or indeed the Artiste or Band, might invite me in to help and advise.

Whatever level they may be at - I can help formulate the best way forward.

For example:

  1. Bullet Source the right musicians and crew if required.

  1. Bullet Assist with arranging the music and the musicians.

  1. Bullet Create backing tracks if required, liasing with Producers/Labels etc.

  1. Bullet I can advise on and source the right equipment.

  1. Bullet Pull all the required elements together and project manage throughout rehearsals and onto the stage on time and budget!

Here are a few of my clients:

                    Little Mix.

                     Neneh Cherry.

                    Gabriella Cilmi.

                    Jeremie Kisling. Sony France.

                    Paul Oakenfold.

                    Lemon Jelly.



                    Jess Mills. Island Records.

If you think I might be able to help at all don’t hesitate to get in touch for a chat, with no obligation.

(Sorry. Sounded a bit like a double glazing sales pitch there)
