In recent years, as a newcomer to the jazz vocal scene, I have had the good fortune to accompany some wonderful, seasoned musicians.
Performing in EXASSIBON! - (as a duo and a trio), and as a guest vocalist with the fabulous Peter Walters Trio, I've had the pleasure of doing regular local gigs on the Qld Sunshine Coast, including New Year's Eve 2019/20 at the Buderim Tavern - and in Brisbane, at the Doo Bop Jazz Club.
Here are a few excerpts and samples...
(Apologies for the quality of audio and picture in the video clips. They are what I had to work with in editing these vids, so they just are as they are.)
Some longer excerpts of songs with the Exassibon Trio, featuring the great Peter Walters on Electric and Double Bass, and talented Paul Henderson on Guitar.
Mucking around in the delirium of lockdown 2020, trying out my impersonations of other voices.
Pretty awful, but just a bit of fun :)
Have been 'in the studio' as they say, recording some songs for a compilation.
As chance would have it, two of those songs were used (in part) in a recent feature film entitled BRUNO SAMMARTINO. The film is a historical biography with recollections by and about about the great World Wrestling Federation legend. It played for one week in late 2020 in theatres in New York and Santa Monica, Ca. - I was of course thrilled to have had the serendiptious opportunity to have my work included in this film, produced and screened in the USA and which featuried (amongst others) Arnold Schwartzennegger. Haha who'd have thought!
Stay tuned for some song releases, if I ever get the rest finished! :)
