about

Set for release on 6th July 2018 through Village Green Recordings, ‘Staccato Signals’ is a bolder and more ambitious record than anything he has written before, largely the result of relinquishing different levels of control over the musical process.

What emerges is a daring, vivid and emotionally-charged music unshackled from a traditional sense of structure and genre. It’s an album that smoulders with darkness, yet is laced with melodic glimmers of light.
