Composer, pianist and trombonist Daniel Hewson is fast making a name for himself in both the UK and Portugal. He is a multi-talented musician equally at home in the pop, classical and jazz worlds.
“Heartfelt string arrangements” (Andy Puleston, BBC)
“A young, up-and-coming British composer.” (Classic FM)
“...some sparkling piano from Hewson” (https://www.tradebit.com)
"The glorious strings that explode from Edge Hill are proof of life..."
".....driving rhythms punctuate the quartet and quintet which have influences of Bartok and Stravinsky but are resolutely Hewson''s voice with beautiful melodic structures....modern classical music as it should be - challenging yet tuneful. Highly recommended!" (Richard C, London)
"...truly electrifying. I love the way Secret Doors combines elements of jazz with the more ''classical'' sound" (Peter Bance, Cambridge Review)
