About Me

I completed my undergraduate degree in music at the Victorian College of the Arts in 2011 and since then he has been working consistently as a freelance upright bassist most notably as a member of the 'Demian' and co-founder of 'Bat Country'. I studied under a number of notable Australian double bass players including Fank Di Sario, Tamara Murphy, Ben Roberston, Anitia Houstas and Ben Hanlon. In 2014 I completed my honours year at the VCA. I am a published academic writer and music critique. My intention is to draw readers attention to under-recognised creative and innovative contemporary music through critical analyse.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
