After a long period of inactivity, the music business seems to be opening up again.

Eric Clapton contacted me and asked me to score strings for three new tracks that will be included on a new album – and the session went well with Eric playing along with the orchestra.

Four years ago there was a mass shooting in Las Vegas where a lone gunman killed dozens of party goers. A friend of one of the victims who survived the shooting, has a written a very moving song about his friend and asked Michael Grimm, a winner of USA’s Got Talent, to record it and asked me to add some strings which we did at Abbey Road

Meanwhile in North West India a humanitarian and philanthropist
Neil Nongkynrih, started a children’s choir – The Shillong Gospel Choir some years ago and they are now highly regarded all over the country. Neil is in the process of making a new album, the proceeds of which will go to help the victims of the raging pandemic in India, and asked me to arrange ten titles. We recorded the orchestra in Prague with the Czech Symphony Orchestra which I conducted remotely

In the autumn, Italian singer/songwriter Cesare Cremonini is coming to London to record strings and choir on some new tiles which he has asked me to score and conduct
