Dominic also composes Production Library music (background music for TV & Radio/Theme tunes/Adverts) for the likes of Universal, EMI & the BBC.

As Bluey puts it… “In Dominic you don’t just get an amazing trumpeter, but someone who is more informed about Soul Jazz and Funk than most. An avid collector of rare vinyl singles and albums, Dom does not keep all these treasures to himself, he shares his discoveries with us all on YouTube and the web.

His knowledge serves him well in the studio as he can at any moment embellish his on creativity with references from his wide reaching collection. His arranging skills are incredible and has served many bands and artists very well over the years. His great sense of style goes way beyond the sharp cool exterior to the soulful heart at the core of his music”.
