Hey all. I recently started a new project, which is my new original music band project and a podcast among other things. This will be the focus of my attention for the foreseeable future, and therefore this page will be rather static. Check below if you’re curious 😉
It’s been a while since I wrote an update, so here it is:
I’ve been back in NZ Since November and have been gigging, writing and working on the new project, as well as recording some podcasts which will also be coming out with the new project 🙂
I head into the studio in 2 weeks time, so very soon there will be brand new music and a brand new project.
Here are some snaps from some shows over the past months:
Tomorrow I hit the road to the Netherlands.
Physical copies of the EP are now available and I’ll have them with me at all the shows 🙂
Below are some pictures from the last couple of shows at OLGA and OFEN BAR.
So finally, here is some new music!
These are some songs made between the Funkhaus, Brian’s place and my little forest studio in the north of Berlin over the past few years.
Big big thanks to Brian Cares, Yotam Weiss, Gilad Gur, Michael De la Fontaine (all performing on “Melt), Maik Antrack, Daniel Tourgeman, Joseph Thompson and Inbal Gordon all very talented people with fantastic projects of their own and all of who played invaluable roles in the EP.
Listen/purchase here. You can also hear it on Soundcloud.

Secondly, here is my first video for a long time. This one is an original called Melt.
For the video some friends and I started a collective project called OneTake Acoustic which is all about recording one take of live acoustic music in a uniquely acoustic space. We recorded Melt as well as a song by Inbal Gordan for the first session, but look out for plenty more to come, we will be recording them and receiving recordings from musicians all over the planet.
More tour dates and some studio tracks to come..
This last week has been filled with recording, writing performing and rooftop jamming.
My first Berlin gig of the year was at Biergarten am FAF and was super nice.
So I’m back living in the secluded forests of North Berlin.
Much recording, writing, performing and jamming has been done. I’m currently preparing for a big trip throughout Europe and a release of a CD and live video. Keep an eye out.. 😉
So my sister recently got married and her and her partner asked me to write a song for them. So here it is. Lyrics are up on Soundcloud, free download.
EDIT 13/09: MORE DATES ADDED BELOW
I’m super pleased to announce that I’m supporting NZ duo Joseph & Maia on their Germany tour in September. Tour dates are below.
In other news, I have been working hard in the studio helping my friend Michael Adamant with his EP, as well as working on a brand new original project which has been in development for many months. More info and a preview to come…
Additionally my NZ based band, Voice have just landed a support slot with one of our favourite bands of all time, Anathema. So I will be heading back to NZ in October to rehearse for the show which is on the 23rd at Dux Live.
