I grew up in a musical household in Victoria, with my father John playing in pioneering rock bands in Melbourne during the 70s. Band practice and musical visitors were a feature of my upbringing.
I released my first EP 'Don't ask me' in 2012. 'Don't ask me' contains a cover of the classic Stones track 'No Expectations'. The EP received radio airplay on a number of community radio stations including Triple R, FBI and PBS and the opening track 'Why didn't you want me?' was a finalist in the Rock category of the 2013 'MusicOz Awards'.
I released my second EP 'Heart' in 2016. 'Heart' also received airplay on many community radio stations across Australia and as well as on radio overseas and was featured in the top 100 Triple J Unearthed Charts. Three of the four tracks were also shortlisted in the 'Songsalive' song competition.
My music is largely pop rock but rooted in the authentic blues and rock of my upbringing. Songs range from upbeat pop rock, to soulful ballads, country twang and blues. The tracks emphasise the use of instruments, particularly the electric guitar, and I have been very lucky to perform and record with highly talented musicians. My influences include The Rolling Stones, Powderfinger and The Divinyls.
In 2018 and 2019 I was playing with a band Cassady Southern and the Band of Mercy around Sydney. This year have completed a Diploma of Music Production at SAE Creative Media Institute and am working on new music with the band to be released in December 2020.
