Sleepy Town – Album Preview 2020

Hi Everyone , hope you’re well in this crazy time!

Back in January this year I recorded an album of my original composition at Headgap Stuidos in Preston, Victoria.

I managed to line up a band featuring some of my Aussie jazz heroes, Julien Wilson on Sax, Sam Anning on Bass and Ben Vanderwal on drums.

I’ve just got it mixed and mastered by Dave Darlington in NY and CD’s are on the way, full album will be out July 2020, below is a link to a preview, hope you enjoy!

Studying With James Muller

In 2017 I was fortunate enough to receive a career development grant from the Australia Council for the arts. With this I undertook a 12 month mentorship with the incredible James Muller! It’s been such an incredible experience to study with one of my musical heroes. James is such an amazing musician and I have learned so much from the time spent with him. I can’t thank Australia Arts council enough for giving me this opportunity and to James for being on board for it all. I had a blast!  


Quartet gigs at The Homestead

Throughout 2016 I’ve been performing regularly at The Homestead in Hobart with my quartet. The quartet features regular trio members, Hamish Houston and Rit Coomber as well as the incredible Danny Healy on sax. These have been really fun gigs and a great opportunity to develop new material. Look out for more performances through out 2017.

The trio returned to Melbourne in October to perform as part of the Melbourne Improvisers Collective at Uptown Jazz Cafe.

Looking forward to playing again in Melbourne in 2017!
