Booking Agent, Manager & Host of Jazzfuel.com
I’ve worked an an agent & manager for jazz musicians for more than 8 years now,
after first studying as a jazz musician at the Guildhall School of Music in London.
Alongside this, I run the website www.jazzfuel.com which posts articles, interviews
and tips aimed at helping jazz musicians build their career and get more gigs.
After graduating from music college I started managing a good friend of mine
(Anthony Strong, who I still represent today) and eventually took on a job as a
booking agent at Air Artist Agency – part of AirMTM which is also a top UK PR
agency and management for Jamie Cullum.
In 6 years at Air I booked more than 1,000 shows in Europe, Asia & North America
and represented around 20 artists including Kyle Eastwood, Marius Neset, Anthony
Strong, Get The Blessing, Natalie Williams, Empirical, Troyka, China Moses, Tim
Garland, Food (Iain Ballamy & Thomas Strønen), Hailey Tuck & Michael Wollny.
Today my main work is looking after worldwide bookings and management for a
small roster of brilliant artists. Alongside this though, I spend time each day
reading, writing and sharing ideas on this website about how jazz musicians can
build a career faster and more efficiently.
My Jazz Story
The best show I ever attended was Wayne Shorter at the Barbican in London. After
so many years of studying his records, it was magic to hear him live.
