A former concert pianist now playing chilled-out clouds of minimal piano beauty. Known for combining intricate songwriting with a variety of unconventional add-ons to the piano including blue tack, one-handed drumming and metronome-as-percussion, Larkhall performs with a sparkling tintinnabulation that has earned comparisons to Nils Frahm and Yann Tiersen.

Eponymous debut album released March 2016 & available from all your favourite bit-merchants.


"Exceptional… Very powerful, something you need to experience. Top Album ☆☆☆☆+”

—Jamie Funk, No More Division

“A wonderful change of pace… spoke directly to the Nils Frahm fan in me… glorious, heartfelt melody… No words needed. Emotional cinematic moment; a coming-of-age for the lead character on the big screen of my mind”

—Sunny Stuart Winter, Fresh on the Net


—Richard Wagenaar, The Next Gig

“A great success… Impressive… demonstrates a virtuosity that deserves a very large audience”
