He has played with every major orchestra in London as well as with the Bolshoi Theatre Soloists, the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Canadian Ballet.

He has also played solo support sets for artists such as Moby, Vinicio Caposella, Murcoff and Tomasz Stanko. He leads and writes for the Charming Transport Band, bringing together top musicians from Ghana and Nigeria and players from London’s jazz and improv scenes.
