New Album: VIATA

Viata is the new self-release by Sydney trumpeter Eamon Dilworth (Tijuana Cartel, Ed Kuepper, Low Down Riders). A pensive soundtrack capturing the mood to life experiences.
The album concept stems from a trip to Romania encountering a new city with a different way of life, morales and stories. Viata means “Life” in Romanian, in terms of how we continue to exist and simply be. Learning to live with ourselves as we are.
“The trip opened me up to consider who I am, where I come from & how I deal with experiences and challenges.. My musical output changed from this day to seek a deeper connection through my music and performance leading me to attempt to create soundtracks for my challenges in coming into adulthood.”

Live in Christchurch

March was an exciting time for me full of travels. Following a trip to Wellington and a rejuvenation trip to Bali I was invited to Christchurch to partake in a big band recording session with Ali Harper at Orange Studio.
Whilst there I did a solo show with Daniel Hayles and Reuben Bradley performing compositions that are becoming a sort of “life song cycles” – each song representing a difference viewpoint on life events from the spiritual to the physical places I visit.

This song “Milano” I wrote in the Italian city in 2010 whilst I was living there. Previously I was composing frequently but this year was one of searching and somewhat of an identity crisis and as a result was the only composition I wrote on these travels. I’ve performed this song with The Dilworths, Tiny Hearts and now this group – each time trying to get closer to capturing the feeling of loneliness I experienced living in a foreign city and also identity, being comfortable in your own skin.


I was digging through my old Iphone recordings yesterday and discovered a little thing of me blowing over the standard “East of the Sun”. It’s amazing that how easy it is to record things but then forget them straight away due to the over abundance of recordings. As a result I’m not 100% who is in the rhythm section as it was Feb 2015. None the less they are killing and it’s been a nice trip for me to rediscover some music that I love but don’t play so much anymore.

Introducing the Low Down Riders

Recently I joined a new band – “The Low Down Riders” which is a foray into Dixieland & New Orleans music. For those in Sydney you can catch the band fairly regularly at The Lord Wolseley, Gasoline Pony, White Horse hotel and various other places we pop up.
The band also marks my debut into lead vocals and here is a clip singing and playing my very first instrument – a B & H Cornet purchased in 1995.
