Great vocal writing and production is just as specialist an area as orchestration. My vocal and A Cappella arrangements have been performed on prestigious stages around the world from New York to Hong Kong, and even the Sydney Opera House. They’ve been featured on BBC One, BBC Two, Channel 4, BBC Radio 2 and in international feature films. From classical choirs to Beatbox-driven vocal bands, I know this area like the back of my larynx. I was an Arranger and Vocal Coach on BBC1’s Pitch Battle, and I am the Arranger and Music Supervisor of Gobsmacked! and The Choir of Man, the critically acclaimed singing shows currently touring internationally. 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 7 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 was also been MC of the Voice Festival UK’s University Final for two years, alongside running workshops and masterclasses at the festival weekend.
