I have had a busy and exciting summer travelling to India to perform at a wedding with Entourage, to Zurich and Athens with High on Heels and on two European cruises as part of Elektra. I was featured in an advert for the new Sony Experia phone thanks to the London String Group - I had to play in a perspex box whilst paint was dropped on cymbals! I took part in several performances for 'Classic Ibiza' with the Urban Soul Orchestra and Ministry of Sound playing to crowds of up to 6000! Other performances have included the launch for the new perfume hall at Harrods, Wimbledon Ball with the Urban Soul Orchestra, a sunset brunch at the Hilton on Park Lane, Neighbourhood Liverpool with Six15 and a residency at Maddison Restaurant with High on Heels. Summer 2017 also saw the launch of an exciting new project with Sophie Adams with LED violinists and ballerinas called Fireflies. You might have also spotted me on Britain's Got Talent again!
The most fun gig in the last couple of months had to be performing at a night of club classics with a 40 piece orchestra under DJ Judge Jules to thousands of people! I also had the pleasure of performing with the lovely Samantha Harvey at an intimate gig for her fans at London's YouTube Space. Travels have taken me to both Brussels and Zurich with the High on Heels gang where we met Nicole Scherzinger! I played at The Ritz Hotel for London Modest Fashion Week and again for the City Life boys at Mule Bar. Other highlights have included USO performances at the Joe Macari car showroom and Somerset House for Peroni.
I have had an incredible couple of months travelling to Bermuda with Elektra violins and Las Vegas as Lumina the Laser Violinist. I performed for Deloitte at The Brewery in London with Organic Jam and for rugby's Wooden Spoon charity at the Hilton Park Lane with the Urban Soul Orchestra. You may have also spotted me playing for The Secret Brunch at Merchant Taylor's Hall.
I spent most of December working with handstand artist, Andrea Felipe Salas Rodriguez for a string of performances at Ascot Racecourse which was certainly a first! I also performed once again at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year after party with the Urban Soul Orchestra. Another highlight was playing at the BBC Music Awards with John Legend and Lukas Graham. Ooh and I also achieved a hug from Lady Gaga!
I also have a violin for sale. It is Italian, made by Lorenzo Bergonzi of Mantova in 1996. Please do get in touch if interested.
This month I have performed at venues such as The Arts Club, Quaglino's, the Savoy and Hilton Metropole. I also made another fleeting appearance on the X Factor as well as the Michael McIntyre show. The real highlight however was performing at the Royal Academy of Art for the opening of shoe designer Stuart Weitzman's new flagship store on Regent Street co-hosted by Gigi Hadid. Sadly they wouldn't let me keep the boots!
The DVD from Bring me the Horizon's concert with the Parallax Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall was also premiered and is now available!
