Hello friends,
    I’ve been getting somme inquiries and people have been asking about my upcoming shows, I won’t have many of my own shows this year as I am very busy with other projects at the moment. I am currently working on arrangements for a string quartet for the new Harry Manx album that I am co-producing with Harry. The album will be ready early next year to coincide with a run of shows in Canada with the string quartet. Closer to home, I will be touring in August on the Jimmy Barnes ‘Soul Searching’ Tour with a huge band of superb musicians playing some of the best soul songs ever written. Then in September and October I will be touring again with Harry Manx in duo mode, playing over 30 shows around Australia. And finally as some of you may be aware, I recently played piano with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the Opera House playing tribute to the late, great David Bowie. Due to the success of that show, we will now be touring around Australia playing with all the major Symphony Orchestra’s throughout the rest of 2016.
    I have also been writing some new songs for my next solo album that I am very excited about, so I can’t wait to get back in the studio with my band again. Fingers crossed I will have the new album out next year. Stay tuned.

'BAYOU BILLABONG' Featuring amazing musicians from three countries and recorded across two continents, BAYOU BILLABONG captures the essence of the New Orleans blues piano tradition while fusing contemporary Australiana and Americana.
