About Me

Liam is a leader and arranger as well as a side man on various jazz and blues projects. His favorite project "Sweet Heat", is an acclaimed Latin band in the Afro-Cuban and Brazilian genres featuring musicians hailing from the finest Cuban music conservatories. Liam traveled to five continents playing standards, heavy blues, funk, R&B and of course cool and hot Latin Jazz. Rumba, cha cha, mambo, salsa or R&B, it's all in a days work.
