The pianist and keyboard player studied at Blackheath Conservatoire, Keele University and at the Guildhall School Of Music And Drama. His credits include Live at Royal Albert Hall with The Cinematic Orchestra and The Sir Tom Jones Band on 'Later with Jools Holland'.

Solo piano

His solo piano set ranges from boogie-woogie, cool jazz, bossanova through to contemporary pop songs. He plays songbook classics by Rogers 'n Hammerstein, Gershwin, Cole Porter, Billy Strayhorn and by Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock, Tom Jobim, Elton John and David Bowie. He plays classical music by Debussy, Chopin, Rimsky Korsakov and some classic European covers of Serge Gainsbourg, Marlena Deitrich and Edith Piaf.
"..It was just what we were looking for with a varied and entertaining repertoire...I am still impressed how Nick played for so long without sheet music!" - Jarvis Woodhouse Events
