Career Highlights

Was great to play Three Hands One Hoof's album launch along side Grace Sanders a few months ago. They're both really great musicians. Also playing Mojo's Rising Band Comp along side Airline Food, Grenan Dawley and Last Quokka was a great night.

Currently prioritizing our live shows to make a more immersive experience for people watching. Always trying to write new music to go along with it.
