This very late-November morning I'm off to record further material for Biomutant which has been in the computer game pipeline for three years now. Sunday February 7th 2021 is the new date on which we are to perform Andrew Lloyd-Webber's Sunset Boulevard in concert format at Alexandra Palace produced and conducted by the wonderful Alex Parker who is grappling with all kinds of restrictions to make this happen. He has asked me to play the part of Cecil B. DeMille. Mazz Murray is singing Norma Desmond.

This year I've been lucky enough to have been recording for audiobook internet radio, voicing several computer games [Tropico 6 and Vermintide], dubbing the role of Uncle Pedro in Netflix's Spanish TV series Alta Mar [High Seas] and Hache [also for Netflix] with a little bit of filming thrown in. These are terrible times for my companions in the entertainment industry and I'm very fortunate to have been working.

My music CD of original solo jazz guitar compositions Moonbathing is now available on both iTunes, CDBaby and Spotify and I am currently at home in London taking studio bookings for the immediate future
