For me, it’s all about the song. I love that a song can instantly break me, or quietly tap me on the shoulder and make me feel emotions I didn’t realise were there… In the madness of life, songs make life a little better – whether they bring a smile, an escape, or just a bit of comfort for the life journey ahead…
So I love to write songs – both personal songs, and songs my friends and I dream up and create together. My first solo album – The Four Day Weeks of April – was released in 2007, and was followed in 2010 by the Held Back the Sun EP. Following co-writing sessions in Nashville, Sydney, and Melbourne, I released my third offering – the Again and Again EP – in 2013.
2015 saw the release of my latest EP, The Sculptor – a collection of songs about faith and the journey of growth. I also co-produced ‘Songs for Little Rooms 2’ for EMU Music – a collection of church songs with acoustic arrangements.
From 2005 to 2015, I was also a guitarist in Sydney worship band Garage Hymnal, and co-wrote numerous tracks across the band’s six albums. We are honoured that our songs are being sung at churches throughout the world. We toured widely throughout Australia, and loved running music workshops and meeting church musicians from all across our beautiful country. I continue to present workshops for church musicians with EMU Music throughout Australia and Asia.
I love music. Everything about it. I can’t wait to record more songs soon, and to continue to embrace the amazing soundtrack that music is to each moment of life.
