Songwriter | Guitarist | Producer | Mixer
Originally from the rolling green hills of permanent precipitation that is northern England. Topher's songwriting yields more towards an American flavor. "I take inspiration from just about any kind of music I hear. I like to create different sound worlds. But hopefully, at the end it still comes out sounding like me." With the amalgamation of different sound worlds, there's no escaping his guitar sensibilities are deeply rooted in the blues. Combine this with compelling story telling, whimisical word play and a knack for painting some finely crafted pop songs. Topher's new single 'Telephone' is available everywhere now. He is currently working on his 4th studio album to be released late 2020, which takes some heavy flavors from his time in New Orleans. Topher is also busy writing, producing, mixing and being a general session musician for other various, talented artists around the world.

New album 'The Courtroom Sketch Artist' is out today! It's taken longer than I thought to get this ready, but hopefully you will agree it's been worth it. It's out on streaming platforms now.
The new music video for 'Josette' is out now folks! Themed on the old 60's television soap, Dark Shadows. We had a lot of fun making this one. Head over to my You Tube channel now to see it!
Jackson Lake has a new song out everywhere called 'Country To Me'. It's a great country pop track that talks about having an affinity for a place and culture you have never really experienced, but can draw paralles to it from your own life. I had the honor of playing guitars on this so please, go check it out!
My new song about Telephone anxiety is out today on Spotify. I created a deep, lush chord progression on the piano for this and built up the song around that. When the chorus kicks in we are introduced to up front drums and moog synth bass lines. Featuring my good friend Nii on backing vocals. We also created a call and response bridge section with our super clean "Mayer-esque" guitars. Go check it out now!
