Musician in the Feature Film – Dance with me

Based on a new novel, Dance With Me is a full-length feature film set in Syria in 2016, during the siege of Aleppo.
More than a love story, it shines a light on ordinary people struggling to survive the horrors of a war zone, while dealing with very real issues – cancer, radicalisation, addiction and attitudes to homosexuality in a Muslim society. The thread of light, love and ultimately hope woven throughout this tapestry of tragedy is an old dog, Basem (trans: ‘one who smiles’).

Musician for a UK TV programme called Outsiders

I played for the main theme  of a new film called Homer. Its A comedy short, about:  “The girl of your fantasies has arrived, the apartment is spotless, Champagne poured, sun setting over London. Nothing can spoil this perfect moment till Homer, a pigeon, flies in and craps all over your dreams. So begins a deadly but hilarious game of man versus bird, all for the love of the girl!”

I provided a live performance for the breakfast show at BBC West Midlands with Mollie Green for a morning game of guess the tune.


2014 – A Boy Called Bremnar – Yorkshire Films

I performed as a busker and member of a talent contest within the film.
Written Directed by Jason Lumsden the film reflects the life experiences of a young boxer growing up in a tough Northern City with a hard drinking dad who looks back to when the mighty Leeds United were the pride of England. The film combines many of the Director’s experiences of growing up in the amateur boxing world and striving to survive the mental strains of been a teenage father. Running up and down the steps facing Elland Road football ground, dreaming of glory and escaping from the struggles of life. Written with a pure Leeds spirit, combining, passion and energy. Boy Called Bremner was a remarkable achievement put together by a group of amateur boxers with no film experience. What started as a laugh involved 85 people from across Leeds. The film features local legends such as Peter Lorimer, The Grumbleweeds, World Champion Boxer Josh Warrington and Beeston’s answer to Vinnie Jones the legendary Tony Mcdevitt and Charles Hindmarsh. Made for the price of a few pints and sandwiches the film is no Hollywood Blockbuster. But it’s gritty, hilarious in parts and well worth a watch.
