Great vocal writing and production is just as specialist an area as orchestration. My vocal and A Cappella arrangements have been performed in London, New York, Hong Kong, on BBC One, BBC Two, Channel 4, BBC Radio 2 (Simon Mayo Drivetime) and in international feature films. From classical choirs to Beatbox-driven vocal bands, I know this area like the back of my larynx. I am an Arranger and Vocal Coach on BBC1’s Pitch Battle. I am the Arranger and Musical Director of Gobsmacked! – the hit A Cappella stage show currently touring internationally, and have previously arranged for The Sons of Pitches and The Magnets. In 2016 I was commissioned by Nord Anglia Education to compose a ‘Virtual Choir’ piece for all 43 schools in their Global Campus.
Jack is a superbly skilled vocal arranger and composer.
I have been fully immersed in the fast-expanding world of contemporary a cappella music for 6 years, since performing in the internationally acclaimed group The Sons of Pitches. I have run numerous Vocal Percussion workshops and masterclasses for many of the best groups in the country, and in 2016 gave a TEDx talk on exploring the human voice.
I have been a judge of the ICCA semi-finals, the Scottish A Cappella Championships, and have produced two ICCA quarter-final competitions. I have also been MC of the Voice Festival UK’s University Final for the last two years, alongside running workshops and masterclasses at the festival weekend.
