Welcome to my website...

...whether you're looking for a composer, a producer, a co-writer or a session musician I'm confident that my broad musical experience can help.

Children's Music

Greg writes, arranges, records, mixes and masters audio projects to a professional standard from his home studio in Oxfordshire for a range of clients including Egmont, Hachette and Barthosport B.V. He often works in collaboration with best selling author, Adam Guillain as Snazzy Badgers Music Productions, and is also happy to collaborate creatively with clients, creating music for apps, games and videos.

Versatile Vocalist

Greg is more than happy to record vocals in a wide range of serious and comical vocal styles. At the serious end this can be pop/rock, soul/blues, classical or imitation female vocals, and at the silly end he's very happy to have a pop at anything - martians, computer voices, yodelling pirates... banana and potato impressions...? Even if clients would rather use a different vocal (eg. an actual female vocal) Greg can create a track mock up with his own voice first, collaborating with other sessions singers to create the perfect finished product once the draft is signed off.

Piano

Following 4 years of study with William Howard [The Schubert Ensemble] and graduating from The University of York with a BA in Music, Greg has performed contemporary and classical piano repertoire in prestigious venues around the country including The Jacqueline Du Pre Music Room, Cheltenham Town Hall & Trinity College London. Greg derives much of his interpretative skill & theoretical knowledge from his time spent at the keyboard.

 
 

Guitar & Bass

Greg loves playing guitar, electric guitar and bass and is happy to jam along to any style of music. His quick ear, fluent understanding of notation and musical structure, and ability to see the bigger picture when recording lines for a track, make him a very easy session musician to work with. Greg's wedding/function band - The Counterfeit Hit - are also available for hire.

Educationalist
