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.

So I’m now back in the EU! I have been writing (as always) and can’t wait to share some new material with you!
I’m currently enjoying a 30 degree day after playing a beach wedding in The Hague in Holland. More soon..
Winter has been writing time. Since the Motions and Memories E.P release I have been very busy playing with The New Beans, writing for a video game and working on two new major projects.
Both are under the radar at the moment but some pretty exciting stuff is in the works.
An old project of mine, Motions and Memories E.P is finally out. You can listen and download on the link below
Plenty, as usual, has happened since the last update. My bandmate from Voice, Michael, arrived unexpectedly in Berlin and stayed with me for a little over a week, allowing new plans and goals to be drawn up for the project, as well as discussions for the band potentially moving over here to Berlin. And a small amount of partying of course…
The New Beans have been practicing hard for to play at the upcoming One Spark Festival, a live crowd-funding event which takes place this Saturday here in Berlin. More details are here, it’s looking to be a really interesting and exciting day and tickets are FREE.
Writing continues on my new project, some of the samples were in an earlier post but more updates to come on that as it emerges…
Finally at the end of this month I return to New Zealand for 8 weeks to see friends and family and continue work on musical projects before I return to the great cold of a Berlin December.
I made a new video today of me playing around a bunch of sounds I created today, the raw samples being a combination of my desk lamp, my foot hitting the floor, my fingers clicking and various uses of a shaker.
The video is here
I came up with this arrangement a long time ago but have only just got around to properly recording it. Free download. More news to come.
I was really missing playing guitar in a live Rock project, so a while back I joined Argentinian-born Indie-Rock band The New Beans as a guitarist. Last week we played a show at Kaffee Burger-this was our first full-band show with the new Berlin line up and it was heaps of fun.
I am still writing tunes, and rather than post on here, I am now going to go do some more!
If you want to czech out The New Beans, the album is here.
Smashing Pumpkins cover coming soon.
On Saturday I played at a small open air festival in my district of Moabit (Picture attached). I have also begun rehearsing with my new band, which have our first show in ten days! Solo work is coming along nicely, a basic instrumental structure of a song called “Ghosts” is finished.
