COPIC MARKER SERIES

Trust from the album Connections
indian

North from the album Allestree

Markers (or textas as we call em here in Straya) were never a medium that called out to me. However earlier in the year I started some experimenting with them and am now creating a series of 50 works to be completed in October. Themes I'm exploring are the body, light, sexuality and a limited palette. It's been interesting and fun - and a bit of a f#%king challenge if I'm being honest.

RECORDING NEXT STUDIO ALBUM

T A S T E R S

- Pataphysics has been come up with some brand new ish, and it is bloody bangin! Big things booked for mid November and the weeks leading up!

- Great shows coming up with Black is Vinyl, Lo-Res, and Dany Maia - playing at the Night Cat, The Wesley Anne, 303 and more. Check out my GIGS page.

- Lo-Res and Slipper confirmed for the 2017 Wangaratta Jazz and Blues Festival!

- For anyone who's into some classy club vibes, Alyson Murray and I will be doing a regular thing on Fridays at Spice Market.

This album has been a while in the planning - most of the tunes were written before my last album, Connections, was even a flash in the neural networks of Tom or I.

Mad dogs Damien Ellis and Hiroki Hoshino have joined me in laying down some meaty rhythm section parts. Vocal and horn sections will be dropping in next.

It's such a great feeling to be getting this stuff out there and to work with such great players and general good human beings.

After a successful tour in Thailand revolving around a headline slot at the 2017 Phuket UNESCO International Jazz Festival, we've gone into the studio here in Melbourne and recorded the works for this odd and super fun trio. We're currently in the editing/mixing stage with release set for later in the year.

While at the festival we managed to do some great collaborative performances, both live and in the studio, with great artists from Singapore, the UK, China, Mauritius and of course Thailand. It's now looking good for some future cross-national work in the near future.
