Outside of work my main passion lies in music.
I've been playing in rock bands for the last ten years and have been fortunate enough that some of the music I've written has allowed me to tour Australia countless times, as well as play at festivals in New York and London. In July 2017 I'll be heading to Tasmania for a week, where I've been invited to take part in the One Eye On The Stranger songwriting mentorship program, hosted by Mark "Kram" Maher of ARIA Award winning band Spiderbait. Currently I'm the main songwriter behind Adelaide garage rock band Battlehounds.
“...a furious five-song collection of quintessential Australian pub rock, reshaped with gloom and gritted-teeth towards an unavoidable apotheosis.” Damn Demons EP review - Rolling Stone Australia
“Adelaide is churning out some great rock action at the moment. Add this Battlehounds song to the list...” Night Crawl single review ****1/2 – Richard Kingsmill, Triple J
“Battlehounds keep getting better with each release. This is some exciting, high-adrenaline rock'n'roll”. Night Crawl single review - **** Dom Alessio, Triple J
“Oooof! This one tears across the bitumen like a getaway car filled with a bag of cash...” Night Crawl single review - **** Dave Ruby Howe, Triple J
“Battlehounds are well and truly one of the next up-and-coming bands” – The AU Review
“I reckon this is perfectly modulated alt-rock; I don't know what it takes to get to the top in rock, but I can imagine Battlehounds riding a sound like this, right up there”. – Chris Cobcraft 4ZZZFM
