Portrait of Graham Pike

Graham Pike is the most phenomenal musician. A jazz virtuoso in trumpet, chromatic harmonica and piano. He can also sing a fine tune too. They don’t get much better than Mr Pike!

Graham came to sit for me on Saturday. The drawing took approx 3 hours with not many breaks as such and I used pencil, graphite stick and watercolour. The hand holding the harmonica (yes, it is supposed to be a jazz harmonica), was a bit of a challenge.

I had the good fortune of playing with Graham a few years ago, when I put the ‘Stocker’ band together. His signature harmonica sound was a draw and enhanced all of the songs to a different level.

We recorded at Kevin Poree’s Berry Street Studios and also at Graham’s studio. Always eager to help musically with my projects, it really was such a pleasure and experience working with such a talented artist.

Nowadays Graham is in much demand and is busy playing gigs across the land. Find out more here:
