Hello. I am a a violinist from Scotland, currently living in France. I started playing violin at the age of 10 and at 14 won a scholarship to the Royal Scottish Academy of Music. After completing my studies and winning first prize in many competitions I toured with most of the major orchestras in Scotland. I then left for Germany, where I was leader of the Passau State Opera Orchestra. After that I joined the world famous Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra where I played and toured for over 3 years.
I have played in many bands, from jazz to rock, including my own Bill Stewart Quintet, and love being pushed in at the deep end. It is there where real music lives.
I am now working on and playing my own music and released my 4th solo album in September 2013. This is highly emotional music, mixing soundtrack/classical and world, and I play and record all the instruments and compose all the music myself. 🙂
Some say this is sad music – I prefer to think of it as beautiful!
I also play jazz violin, jazz manouche, standards and everything in between!
I also work as an online session violinist, so if you need some professional violin on your tracks please contact me.
Thank you for visiting my site and I hope you enjoy the music!
