RPS Instrument Purchase Grant 2021 | £750 towards a saxophone
I have performed with Tomorrow’s Warriors Soon Come Orchestra (directed by Binker Golding) at Union Chapel, and The South Bank Centre; Tomorrow’s Warriors also partly sponsored me to attend the American summer school ‘Jazz House Kids’. I have written music for and run my own quartet, playing live gigs before the pandemic and a few after restrictions recently lifted. I showcased original compositions in 2020 in the Jazznewblood showcase at the EFG London Jazz festival, and I will be playing again in the 2021 live version. I have also played some duo performances with Jazz guitarist Tara Cunningham, where we arranged standards for sax and guitar. I am currently studying Jazz at trinity Laban Conservatoire of music and dance. I play in multiple other projects around London ranging from straight ahead jazz to experimental rock.
