Who would’ve thought that such a big project as creating a Portfolio of A Cappella Arrangements would have stemmed from an idea beginning with the creation of this arrangement?! It was a no brainer for me that I would arrange this folk song, with Bear McCreary’s version capturing me from the moment I heard it. I know that I have grown a lot since arranging The Skyeboat Song, but when I look back at it I still feel very proud of what I was able to achieve, and how I successfully executed the delivery of the expression, harmony and dynamics. This arrangement will always hold a special place in my heart. Please enjoy my version of ‘The Skyeboat Song’.

The Way You Look Tonight

The jazz standard written by Dorothy Fields and Jerome Kern was only the second song I arranged for my Portfolio of A Cappella Arrangements, and given the harmonic structure of this piece, I must’ve been mad to tackle this so soon! I think I’ve done a decent job with the arrangement though and I’m proud […]

Polaroid

Polaroid, written by Imagine Dragons, is the final addition to my Portfolio of A Cappella Arrangements. While I am proud of all my arrangements, I have to say that this one takes the cake for me. My aims for Polaroid were to; Work with more male vocalists since I have arranged mostly for women in […]
