Art Music Award win!
more from Five Below,

Monday nights @ the Jazzlab & Transient Tuesday @ Uptown.

I'm honoured to announce that I received the Award for Excellence in Jazz at the Art Music Awards held in Sydney during August. To add to the joy, I was invited to play at the ceremony with two of my all-time favourite musicians - Gian Slater & Shannon Barnett! (Flashback to 2003 'Angels & Rascals') Thanks APRA & the Australian Music Centre! 
You can read more about the Art Music Awards here.

Other highlights from August included performing Ellen Kirkwood's fantastic new work with Sandy Evans, Gian Slater & the Sirens Big band in Sydney, Christopher Hale's Ritual Diamonds with virtuoso percussionist Minyoung Woo (Korea), Scott Tinkler, Jamie Oehlers & Simon Barker to sold out rooms in both Melbourne and Sydney, and the premier of my new band Five Below (which continues in September with some special guests - see below)
