Music| Jazz Française
I have been actively performing since 2009, in Melbourne, as well as few performances overseas, in Montreal and Paris.
I have been very fortunate to have worked with wonderful jazz musicians, in Australia, Montreal and Paris. Currently, I am playing as a duo with Alistair McLean and at times as a trio with Tom Lee on double bass. Previous musicians I have collaborated with are Mark Fitzgibbon (piano), Bob Sedergreen (piano), Geoff Hughes (guitar), James Sherlock (guitar), Hugh Stuckey (guitar), Howard Cairns (double bass), Dominique Fillon (piano, Paris- France), Guillaume Martineau (piano, Montreal-Canada), Rafael Paseiro (bass, Paris-France), Jerson Ramos (percussion, Paris-France).
My repertoires are a mixture of jazz, bossanova and chanson Française.
I am influenced by Bill Evans, Edith Piaf, Jonathan Zwartz and Antonin Jobim.
Always open for collaboration and performance engagement opportunities.
