Writing with Kristina Lao

Kristina Lao is a very talented singer/songwriter. She paid me a visit a couple of weeks ago and somehow, we just drifted into writing a song called ‘I’m Here’ (visit the music page to hear).

I’ve know Kris since her days in musical theatre in Brighton, then a move to Hong Kong and study Music and her move to London. Her next stop is world domination and she can do it! She is energetic, enthusiastic, creative and funny and a way with lyrics that make them drip off your tongue like honey!

We intend to write together in the near future

The Piano Player Does Not Do Requests

I wrote the music for a radio play by Chris Paling, Music and Words; The Piano Player Does Not Do Requests. It’s a charming story about a man who returns to his home town after a decade, to see if there is a future for him and the girl he left behind.

The pub had a mysterious pianist who played these pieces throughout in the background. It’s nice to do something diegetic for a change…
It was directed by Celia de Wolff for Pier Productions.

Check my music page to hear the two pieces.
