arranger

As a performing musician and musical director, I hardly ever do a performance or project without arranging something specially for it. I was responsible for most of the vocal and instrumental arrangements for my band Harvey and the Wallbangers. For many years I arranged all music for Field of Blue (with singer Jacqui Dankworth). For 15 years I worked with Jocelyn Pook, co-arranging for film and live shows. I was musical director and arranger for four years with Natacha Atlas touring band. Amongst others.

Over the years I have done hundreds of arrangements for recordings by pop, jazz, classical, folk artists. And for concerts, festivals, weddings or other public events.

String and brass arrangements for artists including: Soul II Soul, Caroline Lavelle, Jerry Dammers (Spatial AKA Orchestra), Duran Duran, D Influence, Chanté Moore, Sinitta, Maxi Priest, Spiritualized, Kitchens of Distinction, Definition of Sound, Terry Hall, Robyn Hitchcock, Telephone Bill and the Smooth Operators.
