Finding an initial interest in singing through my primary school days, I went on to develop my early years as a performer with great persuasion from my music teacher through high school musicals and productions. That addictive adrenaline rush I felt from performing then was something I knew that I would not let go of in years to come.
I’ve been a full time musician since 2009, racking up over 2000+ gigs so far, working with venues and agents alike. Now you can usually find me playing in some venue, quiet or crazy busy, any given Thursday to Sunday!
I have also been fortunate enough to have been offered repeat Hamilton Island Residencies through the summer period every year since 2009.
Corporate and private functions, cocktail parties, weddings, pubs and clubs…I’ve done it all. If you want a cruisy, chilled background set no problem, or I can rock it up nice and loud, full of showmanship.
A little help from some gadgetry and a wall of sound is built live, to give you an awesome spin on your favourite classics and music of today. You won’t need a band!
I love what I do, which you will experience live and can take home as a memory!
Hats off to my beautiful wife, stepfather, two brothers, sister and niece who have given me valuable support over the years which has helped me to develop into a proud musician with my own style and unique sound that comes out in every breath and strum.
