My grandfather was a master builder. He once said to me that he looked on everything he built as a monument to himself. I know that was his way of saying “If a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well” and it really struck a chord with me.
It's important to me, when I’m writing and recording, that every recording of every performance of every note is the best it can be ... after all, once it’s out there there’s no going back, no tweaking and when I’m lucky enough to hear something I’ve produced being used in a new context, then I want to be proud that I’ve done a good job!
I feel honoured and humbled that my music has been used in such a wide diversity of situations, from local radio adverts here in the UK to election campaigns in the USA; in television documentaries and dramas from South America to the Middle East, and including our own BBC and ITV.
