Professional Sax and EWI (Electronic Wind Instrument) player with over a decade's worth of experience - e.g. Andrew Farriss (INXS).
I have performed & recorded in NYC, Nashvile, LA, Chicago, Berlin, London, Edinburgh, Melbourne and Sydney.
As well as producing my own records, I love collaborating with other artists and hope to work on your project!
Trained in both Jazz (ANU/UIUC) and Classical (AMusA), my music draws from a myriad of influences and the output ranges from Fusion, Funk, Blues, Jazz and World through to Pop/Rock, Folk, Reggae and Hip Hop.
I have extensive recording & performing experience through the plethora of session work conducted in the past as well as producing 5 of my own albums.
My services can be as simple as playing over an EDM track for you to chop up as you wish, producing funky horn arrangements for an R&B tune or the good old wailing Pop/Rock Sax solo that makes you shiver inside.
My portable setup means that I can track my parts from anywhere in the world, but face-to-face work can also be arranged.
I have journeyed through the USA, Europe and Australia, performing in clubs and doing session work with bands, songwriters, producers and DJs from all walks of musical life.
Inspired by this, I constantly explore new musical avenues to discover original sounds and styles.
My maturity as a session player means that if you know exactly what you want I can help you realize that dream, taking criticism (without egos getting in the way!) until you are satisfied. And if you don't know what you want, I am also more than happy to workshop ideas both with or without your input.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you with your project.
