The day has finally arrived. I am so excited to announce the release of my signed debut album ‘Memories. The album has been a labour of love and a long time coming. The album consists of my own arrangements of popular and classic songs, all of which are cello with piano accompaniment.
Sometimes I have to pinch myself, how lucky am I to be doing what I love. Bringing so much pleasure and joy to people through my music. This is why I have decided to name my album ‘Memories’. Memories for many amazing couples I have had the pleasure in performing for on the biggest day of their lives. Memories of my journey as a cellist and artist, and memories that are yet to come. I am so proud of this and hope that it will bring many of you comfort, joy and happy tears.
I would like to thank Tim Hamill from Sonic One Studios for being the wizard that he is. To Graham Harries Photography for the fabulous images. Thank you all for your continued support and I really hope you love the album as much as I do. This is a memory I’d like to treasure forever. If you would like to order a copy of my album (available digitally or as a signed CD) please get in touch via my contact form below.
