I play trumpet in a variety of bands and groups .. studied at Welsh College of Music and Drama (now “Royal” WCMD), then a Post Grad teaching qualification at Cardiff Uni and then a spell as a Peripatetic Brass Teacher for South Devon before getting my BBC job in sound.


I am lucky enough to know some very talented composers and occasionally they have flattered me by getting me to play for theme tunes, albums, TV scores …

Jebo – A Bristol band, I play on their album “Sinking Without You”

Sarah Class – A Bristol based composer/singer/songwriter, I play on her soundtrack for David Attenborough’s Africa series (2 episodes “Kalahari” – the Giraffe stand-off sequence and “Cape” – Pelicans sequence … musical biodiversity!)

England’s Roar! SO ASHAMED! >>> as a Welshman to end up on Steve Yabsley’s England Football anthem .. very crazy u-tube video! (I’m Welsh and the Trombonist Savio is half Welsh, half Italian!)

The Bands

Gee Baby I Love You

A high octane soul/funk band, heavy on the horns

The Regz

Started out as a “works band” and has blossomed, by public demand, into an exciting function band playing some of the great classics.

Bristol Brass Consort

A classical brass ensemble that crews-up to a 20+ piece band to tackle some spectacular brass repertoire including new commissions.

Dave Salt Big Band

A 17 piece big band playing the music of Buddy Rich, Duke Ellington, Sammy Nestico and many others (including Glenn Miller of course!)

The Non-Commitments (Liverpool)

This is a “works band” with a difference. The players are predominantly drawn from the ranks of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra with invited guests. I feel very privilaged to have been invited to play with this band on various occasions.
