I am a songwriter, sound artist, composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer from the Isle of Skye on the west coast of Scotland.

Over the last few years, I have worked on a broad range of projects including writing original songs for the play We Have Won The Land, creating a Yeti Museum in a shipping container with artist Kate McMorrine, collaborating with Jason Singh and David Littler through their Sampler/Cultureclash project, recording and performing with Mairearad Green, and working on Story's End, a major collaborative project exploring death in narrative, with The Dead Man's Waltz and a host of visual and literary collaborators.

Philippa Thomas and I have just completed Suspension and Disbelief, a new commission for An Lanntair in Stornoway as part of their 2016-2017 Bealach season. You can find out more about it HERE. The exhibition itself is now over but will reopen in Uist on May 6th 2017!

A new album of my songs, The Day Is Loud, is out now and you can hear it and even buy it here.

As a producer and engineer I have worked with some of the finest acts in Scotland's folk and acoustic scenes  as well as developing and producing radio drama, voice over and soundtracking. My studio is a small but sweet combination of the latest software and high end analogue processing and mixing. Get in touch or visit my production page for more info. I also manage Stiuidio Ostaig, the studio at Sabhal Mor Ostaig, and lecture as part of the Gaelic and Traditional Music degree.
