On the afternoon of Friday 22nd May 2015 at precisely 2.30pm I stood in front of 17 string players in studio 1 Air Lyndhurst London.
Today was about recording my music for my album SEVEN DAYS, and it felt like a new beginning.
Before I transitioned full time into composing for film and television I spent about 10 years working in recording studios all over London.
In 1998 I spent time working with the extremely talented Beverley Knight on her second studio album ‘Prodigal Sista’ at Battery Studios in Willesden Green, London.
In 2000 I was asked to pitch for a Saturday night BBC1 prime time drama called Sunburn staring Michelle Collins that followed the lives of a group of British holiday reps living and working in Portugal. The pitch involved taking the vocals (sung by Michelle Collins and written by Steve Levine, Paul Meehan and Chris Offen) from the opening titles of Sunburn series 1 and doing an updated remix for series 2.
