Behind the Scenes

Here are some rough demos from my 'Popsical' project, which is currently in progress. This is a hidden page, only for those with the direct link. To hear my published work, go to MUSIC.

Recorded in early 2018 at The Base Recording Studio in South Melbourne, with ARIA award winning engineer/producer Phil Threlfall. Also recorded/mixed and co-arranged (with me) by Jared Haschek (Warner, Hal Leonard) who splits his time between Melbourne and Nashville.

Featuring acclaimed virtuoso drummer David Jones (John Farnham, Meg Washington, James Morrison, Dame Kiri te Kanawa), Louise Goh (piano/keys/co-arranger) and Adam Spiegl (bass).

These are all very rough demos recorded with my newborn little buddy, who surprised us five weeks early and scuttled my plans to make some progress before his arrival (he obviously knew I was writing and singing about him :) Here we are fresh out of two weeks in hospital together - please excuse the postpartum, sleep-deprived, dehydrated, baby-carrying singing!
