About Me

Immersed in a stinking mire of dense guitar treacle, I'll tremble across the bedsit floorboards to rifle through a curvatured stack of gleaming laptoppery, picking up a mould-speckled avant jazz platter on the way, all the while attempting to translate these worrying eardrum vibrations into semi-coherent sentences. Right now I'm also writing for Downbeat, Jazzwise, Songlines, London Jazz News & The Brooklyn Rail. I've also contributed regularly to The Independent, the BBC Music website, Mojo, Q, The Gramophone, The Wire, The Quietus, The Arts Desk and Amazon.co.uk.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
