These are some of the musical works I have created either by myself or in collaboration with other writers.
To Spin or to be spun
I wrote, recorded, produced and mixed this track and it was mastered by Alex Bartles at Altar studios.
I composed this score for the The Cue Tube and Metapop (Native Instruments) for the Score Relief 2022 competition. The film was produced and directed by Collette Brown and Four of Wands.
I wrote Go Peacefully while on holiday in Lanzarote. The heat of the desert-like climate influenced the thoughts in my mind of someone close who was succumbing to illness and was close to passing away. I thought about the endless cycle of life and death made real in front of me by nature and the animals I saw around me. Life is like a liquid that can be used up without thinking and we desperately try to replicate the recipe for it afterwards but can never re-create the alchemy.
Written with Michael Garvin (writer of George Benson's 'Never give up on a good thing', and Jennifer Lopez's 'Waiting for tonight'). Produced by Chris King.
Co-written with Michael Garvin (of 'Never give up on a good thing', and 'Waiting for tonight') in association with Brian Williams of Leopard music. Production by Ofer Hammerman and vocals by Orly Vardy. 2019.
Cold is a song that tells the story of a girl struggling with an eating disorder and depression whilst living in a shared house at University.
This song tells the story of someone who is struggling to leave an abusive partner and the power struggle that she feels caught up in whilst trying to find the strength to leave.
I wrote Ladies after being inspired by Downton Abbey and the story of the Ladies of Llangollen. The song tells the story of two ladies who have feelings for each other yet cannot speak about it due to societal rules. One is due to marry; an event that she feels she is carrying out due to duty rather than desire. The other is angry and hurt yet cannot do anything about her feelings. Their relationship is doomed to remain forever a secret.
Cankles was inspired by the film 'Shrek'. It's about being ashamed of our imperfections and hiding away, and as a result never letting our unique light shine.
I wrote Please Stay for an RPG created by games designer Jonny Morgan.
I wrote the topline melody and recorded the vocal for this track by Snore Hovdal.
This song was co-written with Nic Rigby and Dave Banks. The song is a fictional tale based on the battle of the Marches between Wales and England.
My song has been remixed by the wonderful Erin at Eleven.
