I am a British cellist, composer, and singer / songwriter with three solo CDs, Spirit (produced by William Orbit), Brilliant Midnight, and A Distant Bell.

My new solo album The Raven produced by John Reynolds will be released in July.

I have made many collaborations over my career including with Vangelis and Massive Attack, and am a longtime member of Loreena McKennitt's band.

I have recently released a new  Secret Sky album Opium, with my bandmate Brian Hughes.
