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.



Monday 15th December

A few cool gigs I’m involved in this week:
Tonight :: with Mingus Amongst Us at New Hampton
Tuesday :: Old School Funk & Groove Night at 505
Wednesday :: Gazele Live Recording at Gingers

It’s been a busy few weeks but I’ll be uploading some new videos and links to new albums I’ve played on.




Random Acts of Instruments

On Wednesday I had the pleasure of heading into the 2dayFM studios in Sydney to collaborate with the amazing beatboxer and multi-instrumentalist Vanessa Caspersz. We got together and made our own version of “Riptide” by Vance Joy.

It was a really fun experience taking the original song, re-arranging it for Beatbox, Ukelele, voice, handclaps and trumpet. We spoke at length about trying to be as creative sonically as we could with lots of extra instruments but also serve the story behind the song.

Below is the link to the video:




Thanks for stopping by….like most people experience, time escapes me and the first thing neglected is my own website. However thanks to the christmas period I’ve had a bit more time to focus on getting a few things done like the site you see before your eyes.

I’ll slowly add more content and try to keep a tour journal happening. I spend quite a lot of time on the road with Caravana Sun which is really the experience I read of my heroes of driving town to town playing shows to as many people as possible and developing a band sound by playing 4 nights or more a week. So far theres some exercises for improvisation/trumpet that I’ve developed for my own routine and a few transcriptions of my favourite trumpet solos that I’ve done over the years.

During 2013 I was involved in several recordings that I’m very excited about. The first is AYA by Caravana Sun. Also The Dilworths recorded a new album in May due out later in 2014 and December saw myself and Paul Derricott create Double D productions which alongside supporting The Dilworths and DerroDerro has been recording low-budget sessions with Dave Theak & Ben Hauptman. More news on those soon!

Here’s a little soundbite of a new solo track i recorded this week! Only trumpet, electronics, loops and voice.
