AUGUST-OCtober Update - WHAT'S been happening? - @benbulletmort

Hi guys! Lots has happened and since I am now mostly traveling on the go, I have begun new ways of communicating with you all through my iPad. So without further ado- here's what's been going on...



This month from the 26th of November to 27th of December, I shall be heading out for my first UK tour with a musical, alongside a whole host of West End actors and musicians. I have currently been preparing for this with rehearsals beginning in a few weeks. I shall be blogging throughout this process, mostly video blogs but I'm also contemplating offering Skype guitar tuition and live streaming using the app periscope. The tour shall be hitting the following cities: York, St Albans, Woking, Torquay, Manchester, Basingstoke, Northampton, Oxford, Cheltenham, Edinburgh, Dundee, Birmingham, Croydon, Folkstone, Eastbourne, Sage.

August - Present

Tutor for The ACAdemy of coNtemporary music & dk music academy

Since finishing my degree at the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford, I was offered the position as a new tutor, working as a personal mentor for all students. Having just finished my degree but also been working as freelance musician, educator, journalist and photographer in music for the past two years. I wanted to help guide students to the next level in their careers, alongside me on this journey.

Around this time I was also approached by the DK Music Academy after having been recommended as a guitar tutor by a management agency I had audition for. I have since been providing 1-1 guitar tuition for this term at their establishment in Godalming, Surrey.

August - presENt

New band with Dk Music managment

In late August I auditioned for DK Music Management, a music agency that puts together bands for corporate events and weddings. After the audition going successfully and having been offered a position with my own band, we began all the necessary start up work such as rehearsals and photo/video shoots all in time for the first of our dates booked this month. Our calendar is so far booked right through to July next year.


Tommy The Musical - GReenwhich Theatre london

In August I was hired as a dep guitarist for the musical Tommy. As a rock opera featuring music by The Who, this was the first production of Tommy in London in 15 years. This job had me performing on stage with all the cast and closing the show with a pretend guitar smash. With such a positive response from fans, the show shall be seeing its concert tour throughout the United Kingdom next year with me along for the ride.

"I hope to strengthen to musical community one musician at a time and share with the world the developing of my career as it happens"


Doll duncan

In September I began working with London based artist, Doll Duncan. Having developed her sound over the past few years, Doll was looking for a guitarist to perform alongside her acoustically. Our first show was at The Jazz Servant Quarters supporting Albert Gold, who was accompanied by Steven G Legend on drums (Rihanna, Rita Ora, Conor Maynard, Kwabs) and Mathew Waters on guitar (Diversity).
