What is this KickStarter all about?

After gallivanting across the globe with my power rock trio RavenEye for the last three years, it's come time to release this album of my Jazz material - to show you all the flip-side of my musical soul. 

I'm so proud of this album and I've been waiting (literally years) for the best time to release it. I can't wait for you all to hear the music and see these rewards!

What is the funding for?

The funding will go specifically towards printing the CD's and producing the t-shirts. The music is already recorded. The musicians paid. The artwork found. The music has even been released in Australia but I wanted to release this music in the UK as it's now been my home for almost 6 years. The t-shirts look amazing and all rewards are the coolest and most personal ideas I could come up with. The funds will go towards producing all this cool swag - so thanks in advance for all your support.

What if I don't like jazz?

It's not really about liking Jazz, just check out the music and see for yourself - it may be your perfect soundtrack for taking a bath or gardening or making love?! Give it a chance.

If you really don't like Jazz, JUST BUY A TSHIRT HAHA! ;) - the dancer is absolutely beautiful and the image is a piece of art all on its own if you ask me. Drew Ormrod was the photographer who captured the amazing moment.  

I wrote the music when I had just moved to London, in one of the most chaotic times in my life and interestingly, the music came out very chill, very calm, almost the antithesis of what was happening in my life. 

The T-shirt!

Who are you playing with?

I'm glad you asked. The guys on the album are some of my favourite players from my home town in Perth, Australia. They made my tunes sound incredible and with the help of my long term bro behind the desk Jesse Stack, we made it come to life in only 2 days!

Check out Ben Vanderwal on drums, Harry Winton on guitar, Tom O'Halloran on keys and super special guest, Wency D'Souza on percussion.
