Bio:

I am an artist living and working in Glasgow. I graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland  (RCS) in 2019 with first class honours in violin performance where I spent a good deal of time composing, performing and showcasing the contemporary, experimental works of my peers. Studied violin with Greg Lawson, comp with Dave Fennessy and EA with Alistair MacDonald.

 

Things of note:

Releasing a DIY album of violin music written by Rufus Isabel Elliot this February, 2022. Recorded in my flat, violin played, mixed and mastered by myself. I remixed the three solo violin pieces and that is the album close.

I.Been a bad boy:- cut me loose_ is an audiovisual short film released last year, commissioned by the RCS after winning the Craig Armstrong Prize 2019 and being performed live this March with Sonica Festival 2022. 

Nevis Ensemble commissions include a solo horn and electronics work (2020) and then a string quartet and tape piece released at the end of 2021.

Album of experimental rap being finalised this year with rapper Patrick Shand, I produce the music, mixing etc and we plan to create an AV short film for the whole album.

Album of contemporary folk music being finalised with duo Josiah & Ludwig, BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Nominees 2018.

FRIENDLY BOOTS was at nonclassical Battle of the Bands and will be in Belfast for Sonorities Festival 2022.
