Over the course of 2017 I shot 9 different music videos, all of which were original arrangements of songs that really mean something to me.
Each track has a unique and different line up of musicians specially put together for this project. Just as the songs chosen have a personal meaning for their inclusion on the album, all of the musicians I have handpicked to collaborate on this project have been an influential part of my musical journey to date!
Once all the videos were released I re-mixed and produced the tracks and on the 17th March ZIO was launched.
In 2016 I became an Uncle for the first time. The album is called 'ZIO' (Italian for uncle) in honour of my beautiful niece.

"Man, the videos on your website! Session #3 with the keys players!!!! I watched that SO many times now and I genuinely mean it when I say, that’s one of the most enjoyable artist videos I’ve seen in a long time. Everything sounds killer and the solo aint that bad either 😉
Martin Potts (Paiste/Korg)
"Dis donc la vidéo, pfffff, génial ! Puis alors le passage de ta « batterie jouet » à ta « batterie normale », magique. La baffe qu’on se prend ! Très chouette ce projet ZIO."
