My Debut Album - State of Bliss

My album features Thierry Fossemalle on bass (The Whitlams, Grace Knight), Dave Sanders on drums & percussion (Grace Knight), Paul Appelkamp (aka Lionheir) on electric guitar, and the legendary Steve Russell on keyboards. Together with my visionary, ARIA-nominated, producer/engineer Anthony Lycenko, they have wonderfully interpreted my songs. The cover features my original artwork (copies of this are available for sale).  

It’s titled ‘State Of Bliss’, songs that are thoughtful, some upbeat, some playful, some on piano, most on guitar, with varying time signatures, about various aspects of life. It’s reminiscent of 60s/70s singer songwriters, but at times waxes poppy with a more modern twist.

What the musicians have said about my songs:

’State Of Bliss’ has a real musical soundscape feel to it. It’s like a Joni Mitchell song. It’s a really good song”.

“Jacaranda Time’ reminds me of a Burt Bacharach song!”

“Something Has To Give’ and the way you sing it sounds like Karen Carpenter.”

“Couldn’t We’ is a wonderful musical journey”.

“True Love’ is a real feel-good song”.

“I can hear ‘Better Than That’ on Joni Mitchell’s next album.”

The quintessential Sydney love song from my debut album, 'State Of Bliss'. A catchy song that gets in your head! Great views of the sandstone buildings and terrace houses of Sydney, Australia.
