Research interests

Most of my published work has engaged with the study of hip-hop music and culture, but have also written on jazz, crowdfunding and the figure of the singer-songwriter. I am currently writing on a book on UK hip-hop in the 21st century. 
 
Other research interests include:
  • Popular music studies (especially hip-hop)
  • Musical borrowing
  • Film music and other forms of audio-visual intermediality (e.g. YouTube)
  • Jazz (history, arranging, analysis and composition)
  • The singer-songwriter
  • Intersections between progressive rock and jazz 'fusion' in the 1970s
  • Digital patronage
  • Music and geography
  • Mobility and sound studies
  • The analysis of record production
