Australian Artist, Musician, Songwriter and Music Producer

Hi all

Hoping all is well in your world, wherever that may be.

The year began with the Tamworth Country Music Festival. The festival culminates in the Country Music Association of Australia’s Golden Guitar Awards and it was once again such a privilege to be trusted to lead the band backing so many gifted performers and musicians. Special thanks to the brilliant Golden Guitars House Band of Bill Risby, Mitch Farmer, Duncan Toombs, Michael Muchow, Clare O’Meara, Michel Rose and James Gillard for such beautiful playing; you make my job easy! Extra congratulations to Duncan who took away Golden Guitars for Video of the Year and Heritage Song of the Year.

I am still working on that elusive second album and I did manage to get an instrumental released and nominated in the Golden Guitars Top 5 for Instrumental of the Year. It’s called Betoota Stomp and you can check it out here. Congratulations to all the finalists and my friends Liam and Gaby – Wicker Suite, who were deserved winners.

Keep an eye out as I’m putting the finishing touches on a new single and I will be progressively releasing more new music throughout 2024.

There were a lot of highlights in 2023.

Touring and recording with John Williamson throughout the year.

Being invited to accompany Sara Storer on Song Circle, playing alongside some of my musical heroes.

Playing music for many of my favourite artists and friends on Cruising Country in December.

Playing and singing on Brain Cadd’s new album .

I’m looking forward to what 2024 will bring. All the best and I look forward to catching up with you in the near future.
