Welcome, take a look around!

Oh hey there! Welcome! Take a look around!

Katoomba goes OFF 

What an amazing Saturday just gone! 

The very first ever Katoomba Live and Local micro festival set the CBD of Katoomba awash with incredible music of every genre and age. What a total pleasure to be a part of such a ground breaking event, there was such a sense of excitement, community and passion for music and culture it made my heart sing! 

Big thanks to Aunty Jack's for hosting a bit of blues! And MASSIVE thanks to Meg Benson for organising it along with Chris Cannell and countless other valuable and passionate souls that put in a lot of time and effort to make this event the success that it was. 

Cheers Brad Diedrich and Brigitte Grant for the happy snaps too! 

New original vid 

It's heeere! I recently went to a workshop organised and run Meg Benson and Mountains Youth Services to learn a little more about this wild and wonderful music business as well as getting a photoshoot from the amazing Lona Logan from Inertia Photography. Oh! And this little video chestnut from the folks at KFM Media, Jackson and Tyson. There's a groovy micro festival coming up Katoomba Live and Local on the 7th of April run by Meg as well - check it out!

I'll be playing as a part of the festival at Aunty Jack's from 3:40pm.

This is a new original I wrote about self preservation from the folks that push and pull and play you. Hope you enjoy Draw The Line!

Things to come... 

Saturday. Oh Saturday! 

Hotel Blue was happening 3 days ago! That beautiful room was packed with so many wonderful people I was quite overwhelmed. Bass Daddy, Frank Corby and I all bluesed up the joint something fierce... and the best thing? Bailey from KFM media recorded THE WHOLE THING!! Stay tuned my lovelies, some groovy moving pictures are in the pipeline!

To give you a bit of a taste -  here's a bit of Bailey's work from last Hotel Blue gig.... enjoy!

Avalon jazz man.... 

What a doozy of a weekend! 

Friday I had the honour of playing 2 hours of jazz with Bruce Cale at the gorgeous Avalon in Katoomba, such a buzz! The uber talented Vanessa Leigh took some swell pics 

New recordings 

Got something cool cooking folks. With this little gadget I'm planning on recording a whole bunch of honest, FREE songs for you. 

Stay tuned...

 

Happy Hippy Hoedown 

What a night! The Baroque Room in Katoomba was absolutely packed last Saturday for an awesome fundraiser for Radio Blue Mountains and Toolo. So much dancing, so much sweat, so much groooovy music! I had the absolute pleasure of performing with Oliver and Johnson from Paperhill before kicking back and listening to Swanee and the Mountaineers. So sooo good! Check out these swell pics courtesy of Lona Logan

Hot three piece at Hotel Blue 

Oh man was Saturday night fun! 

I had the absolute pleasure of playing to a full room of beautiful appreciative souls alongside two incredible musicians and great guys. Frank Corby on drums and David Valaisa/Dave Javu on bass guitar. 

What a joy!

Momentum Launch 

Well, it's done! Finished! Momentum is finally out there in the big, wide world and quite frankly, I couldn't be more relieved. 
18 months of recording, mixing, blood, sweat and tears conveniently condensed into a handy dandy disc. Beautiful.
November 18 was the album launch up at Hotel Blue, the coolest of venues. Such a buzz playing with Bruce Cale, Frank Corby, Rob Weule and of course, Bass Daddy!
Full house and the night went off! Can't thank all the beautiful, generous people that came out to support and bring the music to life. 
I'm one lucky guy!

The most glorious weekend 

Still buzzing in a big way from the weekend just gone. So many beautiful experiences, so little time!
Friday night was a concert I've been waiting on for 6 months or so...Joe Bonamassa live at the Sydney Opera House. It. was. the. best. thing. I've. ever. seen.
Totally blew me away! Joe's performance was utterly inspiring not to mention the band of world class musicians he had working alongside him. Anton Figg on drums, Michael Rhodes on bass, Reese Wynans on organ and piano, Lee Thornberg on trumpet, Paulie Cera on sax plus three amazing Australian singers, Juanita Tippins, Gary Pinto and Mahalia Barnes. Stunning!

Mixing & Design for Momentum 

Well, it's all happening!
As I type this the tracks for Momentum are being mixed to sonic gloriousness and the graphic design is in the final stages and mock ups are being printed either today or tomorrow. It's all starting to come together and I'm feeling rather overwhelmingly grateful to be surrounded by such skilled people that have made and are making this all possible.
I have a printer & replicator all good to go once the music and artwork are finished and everything is on track for the album launch on November 18 at Hotel Blue....yeeeewwww!!!! :D
In other news, I've just had a few photoshoots done by my endlessly talented sister in law Danielle...behold!
Crazy good. I'll be posting some more of her photos on my website soon...stay tuned :)
