Happy new year

What a year 2016 was for me :) I turned 40! i spent a total of 3 months gigging and working in the USA, and hundreds of gigs all over the planet from Australia and New Zealand to Ireland and the USA.

Im very excited about 2017. I plan to do many things this year that I've been trying to do for a long time. I want to release more original music and videos. Maybe 1 song per month if i can make it happen! I want to help grow my corporate business Rock & Roll Team Building but most of all i want to have fun.

Hope 2017 is a great year for all my friends and family.

2016 is rocking

Its been a busy crazy january... and 2016 is shaping up to be an amazing year.

January began with 3 sold out shows in the iconic Sydney Opera house... The All You Need Is love  shows are something special. To perform the hits of the Beatles with a 30 piece Orchestra and band is something very special. This is the second year we have done these shows in Australia and they are going from strength to strength. As a singer gigs don't get much better.

After the Sydney Shows i flew to LA to begin work on an album for Stadium. Stadium are a band that consists of many players who have performed with some of the biggest names in music.... acts like INXS, U2, Morrissey, Prince and many more. The band was formed by Garry Beers from INXS, Mike Krompass from Smashmouth and myself. We are now 5 songs into our debut album and the music is sounding great. We plan to release some music soon and do some gigs in the USA. please check out www.stadiumsupergroup.com

Returning to Australia I was straight into shows with Rock & Roll Teambuilding. In the last few weeks we have done huge shows for major corporate Australian companies in places like The Gold Coast, Sydney and Adelaide. We also did a major showcase in partnership with Swissotel Sydney.. gaining a lot more bookings and major support from corporate media. We plan on bringing the workshop to the USA market in 2016. Im really delighted how the business is building. please visit www.rockandrollteambuilding.com

Jan finished and feb came with 2 more sold out Beatles shows in Melbourne's hammer hall and 2 more in Adelaide's festival Theatre. Life is good! x

Santa is almost here!

Its really hard to believe Christmas is almost here and 2015 is almost gone.

This year has been pretty busy to say the least but a year that i enjoyed very much, and I'm really looking forward to 2016.

Im just very grateful to everyone that i have worked with and the new friends i met in 2015.. Im surrounded by wonderful world class musicians, Agents, bookers, managers industry peeps, and bless with an amazing family and friends... so from the bottom of my heart i THANK YOU ALL.

I hope that everyone has an amazing peaceful merry Christmas and i hope Santa comes to you all.

God Bless and see you in 2016 with more gigs, more original music, and fun times :)

Juggling and wearing many hats

I can't believe its Oct!... where has most of 2015 went?

Over the past few months I've been wearing many hats and Juggling a few balls! and thankfully I'm still sane :)

I'm delighted to be working with Nicole White on a business that i started called 'Rock & Roll Team Building' Nicole has had many years experience in the Australian corporate market and we are having great feedback on the product and its continue to build... you can check out more at the site www.rockandrollteambuilding.com

I'm also very happy to be working with a super-group based in LA. As it stands the players in this band have played with acts such as U2, Aerosmith, INXS, Prince, Sting, and many many more. We have just landed Doug Goldstein as the bands management. Doug is a great guy who was the manager of Guns & Roses for years... so I'm delighted to be working with him. The band will be doing gigs in the USA corporate market, but we also will be working on original material and plan to release music down the line.. watch this space for more info.

Apart from countless gigs that i have done this year and many more on the horizon I'm also delighted to let you know that The Beatles show that i was involved in at the start of the year is making a comeback to the Sydney Opera house!... and it is also doing other shows around Australia. This is a dream gig.. A huge orchestra with a great band playing the hits of the Beatles in wonderful sold out venues in Australia... Life is good.

Busy busy... & Busy

Been keeping a few balls in the air and wearing a few different hats recently.

Started a new business called Rock & Roll Team building which has had so much positive feedback in the corporate market in Aus and NZ.

Im also writing new material for the LA based  supergroup that I'm proud to be involved with... the band is currently called The restless Vagabonds but we are changing the name ... so watch this space for a new video on the band and some original music.

Apart for the above I've been busy in the studio trying to get my own original music together...  it was great to work with my old mate Michael Keeney who is a great producer/musician... and I'm delighted on how its all sounding. 

 

Bye for now!
