Dayenu (Suite)

Uplifting piano and strings build. Two soothing piano lines playing broken chords, joined by gently plucked harmonising acoustic guitar. Bass guitar and drums add depth and a sense of anticipation. The pace builds on drums, orchestral strings enter subtly before a quiet piano break. Strings re-enter, guitar, then piano, drums signal a change, then into the song full throttle, ending on a curious triumphant horn note. Gentle but excited, happy, hopeful and positive, perfect for a advert for health matters, a trustworthy or ambitious service doing good for your family.

Solo piano version available.

Version with no piano available.

1 min and 30 sec ad length versions available.

Not My Ask

Romantic jazz instrumental. Breathy saxophone melody, softly strummed guitar and gentle piano chords, joined by a selection of strings playing the undulating melodic idea in canon. Saxophone plays out before melting away to sultry breathiness again for the wistful mid-section. Strings wail, clarinet cuts through as the track builds in intensity before a quiet, reduced ending. Beautiful, sensual, intense and thoughtful, like the soulful East African jazz of Étiopiques. Would suit a highly charged, tender, romantic moment on TV/Film, or a reflective advert for something very special.

Bat Milk

Chilled jazzy reggae track. Slow piano skank and tip-toeing bass guitar intro with surf-style guitar effects and laid back drums. Brass plays a lyrical melody that sounds like a raised eyebrow, joined by subtle sustained keyboard chords. Saxophone takes a solo, accompanied by jazz drums and skanking guitar keeping the relaxed, mid-tempo beat. Back to melody on brass, before a keyboard solo like The Specials’ Ghost Town and a fade out. Thoughtful and searching, yet relaxed and easy-going, perfect for a Film/TV scene where the protagonist is on a solo journey of discovery in a new place or a strange, intriguing situation. Would also suit an advert for a new, exotic and surprisingly tasty food or beverage.

Vagabond Instrumental

Ambient Electronic track. Subtle electronics, delicate bubbly beats, synth vocal samples, orchestral strings and warm reverb, strings build with percussive electronics, back to quiet reverb section. Tranquil, romantic, uplifting, suitable for hopeful adverts or film/TV sequences, the sound of a future world where robots turn out to be friendly and caring.

Desert Robes

Exotic dub track. Bubbling dub bass guitar lurches around like a ghost from Scooby Doo, wistful piano, surfy slide-style electric guitar, mysterious, exotic brass and reverb-laden electric guitar and drums all plod purposefully and carefully across the track. Saxophone solos smoothly, then duets, twangy electric guitar plays Tinariwen, desert rock-style, all in to finish. Thoughtful, exotic, mysterious and suspenseful, would suit a quiet Film/TV scene set in an intriguing, new place, our character immersed in a new and curious world.

Playtime

Playful woodwind track. Busy orchestral strings, lyrical woodwind and jaunty, tinkling piano. Pastoral, fun and light-hearted, evoking the British countryside, would suit a cheerful advert or TV/Film scene about the beauty and wonder of the natural world.

Tallinn Episode

Instrumental jazz/pop track. Psychedelic synths, catchy Nintendo music keys, syncopated jazz/bossa nova rhythms, warm acoustic guitar, soaring synth strings and easy drums with percussive effects and bell samples. Romantic, smooth, sentimental and cheesy in a good way, like a trip on the Love Boat to Koopa Island, suitable for TV/Film or adverts evoking a warm, fuzzy tropical paradise, or for bobbing on a sun-kissed sea at sunset.

In Response

A warm jazz-influenced piano instrumental. A simple call and answer piano introduces the main melodic motif. This theme is developed through the piece into fuller jazz chords and improvised jazzy melodic fills. Slight change in tone then returns to the original motif. Warm, comfortable, secure and wholesome, made for a film/tv soundtrack to an emotional reunion or a goodbye-for-now-, set in a east coast US town as the leaves turn shades of red and gold.

Nylon Tower

Percussive Spanish guitar track. Washboard percussion, shimmering effects, percussive plucked strings and soaring strings accompany Spanish guitar melodies. Serious, romantic and intense, perfect for a hot summer’s night, on TV/Film, or an advert for a sensual product or experience.

Summer Jam

Electric guitar track with R ‘n’ B beats. Summery guitar riff, shimmering percussion, fun cowbell, laid back trap beats, fuller drums, then piano outro. Positive, hopeful, young and cool, a retro teen-film vibe with an urban update, perfect for cool summer adverts or a modern coming-of-age road movie.
