It is so good when you stumble across amazing talent living not too far away. I met Angelo at a gig back in 2014 and we have been in touch ever since, discussing how I might record some saxophone and horn arrangements on some of his new material.
We got together with two other accomplished musicians, Jake Miller (bass) and Jacob Riley (drums) and together we are The Street Hawks.
The band folded in late 2017 when Angelo decided to go back to been a solo artist. We are still in touch…..
One of my favourite tracks of Angelo’s is Midnight – here’s a version recorded at Sofar Sounds, Leeds.

the album due came out in November 2015 – Street Hawk Diaries (Part 1)
Here’s a quick look into the rehearsal room
