September 2017

It has been a wonderfully busy September with lots of performing all over the place for various jazz gigs, weddings and functions. Lots of new primary school vocal compositions commissioned and written this month which has been great! London City Big Band blew up a storm last night at The Spice of Life in Soho, and Keith Ball’s Live Lounge at The Brickyard in Romford has been sounding great too.

Now we’re gearing up for the album and its’ imminent arrival on my doorstep which is very exciting. James Coppeard has done a fantastic job with the artwork and I can’t wait to share the design with you! Below is a little hint of all of his hard work.


So I hope to see you all at the launch gigs on 15th October and 25th October at Pizza Express Jazz Club and Queens Theatre Hornchurch respectively, links are on the big band page here.

See you there, it’s exciting!

Summer 2017

There has been some well earned recouping over the August period after the busiest Spring and Summer I’ve had since last year! Lots of fun and exciting projects came to fruition after months/years of planning and this Autumn is set to be no different.

I can announce the album launch of my Andrew Linham Jazz Orchestra big band record entitled ‘Weapons of Mass Distraction’. Below is a lovely photo of the band from the recording session!

Wind In The Willows 2017


I had an absolutely amazing weekend last week premiering my new adaption of Wind In The Willows at Queens Theatre Hornchurch. It was a pleasure having my nine piece band in the pit with a cast of 120 young people from the Queens Theatre Youth Company ‘Q Youth’ performing this original musical for the first time.

We had three sold out shows and standing ovations and it completely exceeded all my expectations; the young people were so incredible. I am very proud of the hard work they put it and the fantastic production they created.

Here is a lovely review of the show included in the Romford Recorder:


Here’s a review of the show in Hornchurch Life too!

Below is a selection of pictures taken mostly by me (hence why they are not of a high standard!) of various occurrences throughout the weekend. Enjoy!

Opening night from E Row!

I feel so genuinely lucky to have had the opportunity to write and perform my first musical. It has been an incredible experience and I have learnt so much from the process of doing this and I hope it is an opportunity I get to repeat! Thanks again to the Queens Theatre for taking a gamble on our show and thanks also to James Watson who wrote the amazing book and script to go with all my silly tunes. Bring on the next show!
