August 2017 Newsletter

APRA PDA! Art Music Award nominations,
Five Below
 premier, Sirens Big Band,
Monday nights @ the Jazzlab, Transient Tuesday @ Uptown & more...


I'm totally thrilled to announce that I'm one of the lucky recipients of an APRA Professional Development Award. I flew up to Sydney for a total of 4 hours last week where I attended the ceremony, received a very cool trophy, gave a short speech and had my photo taken with the other winners. The cash component of the prize is incredibly generous and will go towards workshops, online courses, lessons and travel to develop my next new project, which I'm really excited about!
You can check out the full list of winners and info about the awards here.

I am also very honoured to have been nominated for two Art Music Awards!
Still Night is up for Jazz Work of the Year (alongside works by Eugene Ball, Paul Grabowsky & Tom O'Halloran), and I've been nominated for the Award for Excellence in Jazz (alongside Daniel Susnjar, Ross McHenry & Stu Hunter)
You can read more about the Art Music Awards here.

Tomorrow night, as part of my residency on Monday nights @ 'The Jazzlab', I'll be premiering my new band Five Below - not one, but two basses! guitar, drums & piano - can't wait!!

Also, in August I have the great pleasure of travelling to Sydney twice, firstly for a feature in Ellen Kirkwood's new work with the Sirens Big band, and secondly with Christopher Hale's new project Ritual Diamonds.

See below for gig details, or you can check the events guide on my website.
