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 The Guardian, Downbeat, Jazzwise, Songlines and London Jazz News. 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.
