I'm very lucky to be able to earn my living as a musician.
I'm a violinist, composer and improviser. I also play piano and viola and am interested in exploring different soundworlds in whatever music I am playing. I am classically trained, but began improvising as a child. This mix has always fuelled my playing and composing. It is also the inspiration behind the teaching sessions I offer and the workshops that I occasionally organise.
I've worked with many musicians, playing music of different genres, both as a band member and as a session player here in Brighton and in London. This has included playing in string sections for for bands, orchestras, folk rock bands, string quartets, singer songwriter duos, in a barn dance band, in improv groups and in lots of situations from Christenings and memorial services to busking on street corners, playing at parties, exhibition openings and studio work.
- Soundcloud - This is a newish venture. I like how easy it is to use, both for me and for those of you who might want to listen, just by clicking on soundcloud. I'm using my page as a kind of sketchbook for solo projects and also work I'm exploring with other musicians.
- Myspace - You can read more about my music projects, find out about gigs and listen to tracks of me playing my own work by visiting my myspace page.
- Last FM - You can also listen to my album "Wood and wire" on my last.fm page. (There's a famous Hawaiian musician listed there called Annie Kerr, but she's not me!)
Please check out my show list as well. Be great to see you there.
