Songwriting and Band Projects

 

The Curling VIne

The Curling Vine is a moody collection of ballads featuring a band made up of some of the greats of the local music scene. It is an intimate journey of the soul, a coming home from my regular journeys into other realms. Recorded at Sound Heaven Studios in Wentworth Falls 2013-14, the record was launched in April 2015 at the Clarendon in Katoomba and Camelot Lounge in Sydney, to full houses and critical acclaim.

“There is an openness of spirit at the heart of the Curling Vine...comfortably emotional...hints of Nina Simone...”

Bernard Zuel, Sydney Morning Herald.
