Hi, I'm a singer/songwriter from Sydney Australia that writes and plays Country, Americana, Rock, Blues and Folk music!
My musical influences were just about everything I could get my hands on throughout the 70's and 80's
My Harmonica playing has come about by listening to awesome players like John Popper, Sonny Terry, Sonny Boy Williamson, Sugar Blue, Chris Wilson, Kim Wilson, Rick Estrin and Jason Ricci.
I don’t sound like any of those artists I grew up listening to but I can say I’ve spent a lot of time with their songs so I guess little bits of some of them have rubbed off onto me naturally over the years. I consider myself most fortunate that I’ve been able to get to this point in my life – independently releasing an album of original songs I feel are worthy of another person's listening time. I am so honoured for the wonderful players on this Album ~ Lifelines ~ all of them gifted players.
Tim Gaze (Electric Guitars), John Spence (Piano, Hammond organ), Shane Reilly (Pedal Steel), Fabian Hevia (Drums and Percussion), Mitchell Welbourn (Drums), Marcus Adamson (Electric Slide), Jenny Marie Lang (Lap steel), Tania Nichamin (Guest Vocal), Kathryn Krugell (Violin), Melanie Cuthbertson (Violin), Ellie Spicer (Cello),
......more than that, it's their feel, their passion and love of music that they all have inside each of them and how they unselfishly poured all of the magic they possess into my songs that have helped me create something very special, I am so grateful!
The only thing about life I’ve learnt that has any value at all - is LOVE.
