Hey everyone, thanks for reading. As you may or may not know, I write neo-classical/ instrumental music. Musicians have been adversely affected the past few months. We are currently unable to record or perform due to the Covid19 Lockdown, so this funding page will be used to generate some much needed funds to...
1. Help me, not loose my house and studio
2. Keep the lights burning
3. Fund some confirmed collaborations with artist such as the international superstar cellist Tina Guo (from Hans Zimmer)” as well as recordings with the legendary classical guitarist James Grace and Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra .
So if you would like to help me, you can donate anything big or small.
Thanks for reading and helping.
