I am a songwriter/singer/ pianist from
Australia. I've worked as a professional musician throughout Australia and New Zealand and also in Zimbabwe.
During recent years my focus in song writing has been on social justice and humanitarian issues, and I've had the privilege of visiting many countries, and aid projects within those countries, which have influenced my writing.
One of the most significant trips I have made was to Afghanistan in November 2005. In spite of Taliban activity and suicide bombings in Kabul I was able to visit outlying rural areas with medical teams and experience the realities of the endless war zone this country has become.
I have a deep passion to speak out for refugees and internally displaced persons, particularly in Burma and North Korea.
My year in Zimbabwe inspired my first album, “They Told Me This Is Africa”
My third album, “The Cry” was released in 2005 and reflects the issues and concerns I was confronted with in trips undertaken throughout Asia.
I'm committed to sharing the stories and songs that have come out of having my eyes and heart opened to the needs of so many in this world.
My 4th album, “Letters from the 5th Estate” was launched in Hong Kong on June 20th, 2008 on World Refugee Day, in partnership with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees ( UNHCR).
I hope to begin recording a gospel album later this year.
