Describe your sound in 3 words
Cocktail Lounge Jazz
Tell us a few things about your new work.
Low Ambition Day is the fourth in a series of clubby, lounge Jazz albums I wrote and recorded at my small studio in Sydney. I try and give the feel of a late night bar or jazz club, with a bit of a retro vibe. Its kind of old fashioned but I hope it works. We are still in lockdown here, so it’s the closest I get to going out
Which song of the album reflects you the most?
Low Ambition Day. It’s written tongue in cheek, and originally about politics, but became an ironic lament- haha
Favourite album of the past decade?
I don’t know if it was released in the last ten years, but I have been enjoying Combo 66 by John Scofield, really nice, timeless stuff. I love the St Germain album, Tourist, as well- I find myself listening to that quite often.
What would be your dream performance venue?
Ronnie Scott’s in London. But I just dream at home in the studio!
When not writing music, how do you spend your time?
Well, we are in lockdown still, so I do a lot of home schooling with my youngest daughter-that keeps me very busy.
One last thing we should know about you?
I am currently putting the finishing touches on the next album, that will be released in the coming months. It is a pretty cool, bluesy jazz piece that’s coming together quite nicely, I think. I’ll keep you posted:))
