I am Jack and I’m a solo and collaborative pianist and a composer.
As a pianist, my mission is to play with integrity and honesty, and communicate the music with as much lyricism, atmosphere and emotion as necessary. I like to mix performances with spoken introductions, to help audiences appreciate the influences and stories behind the music.
I regularly collaborate with singers and have had success in RCM competitions for voice and piano. I’ve also played with my brother George in a piano duo.
One day on Brighton pier, a shy teenager makes an unlikely friend – the consequences of which haunt him for the rest of his life. I'm proud to be music director and pianist for '1936: Fishing', a cutting-edge LGBTQ+ chamber opera. It's one of an epic cycle of 17 operas, 'A Gay Century,' by Robert Ely and Peter Scott–Presland. The opera is produced by Homo Promos UK, one of the UK's oldest LGBTQ+ theatre companies.
