Formed by Dominic Canning and Sam Ouissellat, Project Karnak has been gracing the London jazz scene with its high-energy electronic frenzy since Summer 2017. With me on bass and Alex Blake on guitar, this four-piece has performed twice with Jazz Re:Freshed, headlined at the Jazz Café and featured at several festivals during the summer of 2018, including Bestival and Manchester Jazz Festival.
Jahméne Douglas first came to the public’s attention when he finished runner-up to James Arthur on the ninth series of The X Factor in 2012. I have been performing as part of his live band since Summer 2018, including headline shows at Hideaway and Pizza Express in London.
Jaz rose to prominence as an advanced finalist on the first series of The Voice UK. I have been performing with Jaz for much of 2018, including his appearance at SoFar Sounds in London.
A band I have written and performed with since my time at university, Helix Solkun features throughout my portfolio. The group has been writing several exciting new tracks for a second record, a follow-up to 2015’s ‘Every Walk’.
I frequently perform with London-based singer-songwriter Ellie Hall. Whether as bassist in a full band or trio, or just as a voice and keys duo, Ellie is an emerging talent, not to be missed.
I have been a performer for two of Toni Castell’s modern operatic shows, blending current production approaches with classical music stylings. Life From Light was my first show with Toni in 2012, which also appeared at London’s Tête a Tête opera festival in 2014. In 2016, Toni returned with ‘2045’, a new show for two nights in the UK.
