From the age of eleven I've been amongst the vibrant and diverse theatre and music scene in Adelaide, an environment full of inspiration and stimulation for me to feed and learn from.

I write and perform my own music for my band MOSS which remains one of the most rewarding things I continue to do. There is no more rapid feedback you can get than the movement, applause and cheer from an appreciative audience for your own work and performance.

Here is my music portfolio so please feel free to get in touch with me regarding any writing or performance requirements, comments or questions.


performing their latest Release: "Summer of 75"


MOSS writes and performs songs that have a little more to them than the steady diet of regurgitated emotional claptrap……”Ref: John Schumann; Composer, Performer & Writer

“……Their performance interwove inspired lyrics with visuals and performance…….The excellent songwriting of MOSS goes straight to core of what is happening in our times. They are the modern day griots of the Western world ….. They epitomise the creative act of hope….. I would highly recommend supporting this band. They are highly creative, collaborative, and what they are saying is worth listening to.” Ref; Naomi Ebert Smith, Co-Chair, Graham F Smith Peace Foundation

“MOSS’s forte is in writing songs that attract our attention then resonate with us every time we hear them – familiar, effective styles coupled with uniquely presented sentiments of consequence inspiring us to contemplate as we’re tapping our feet. This is how a band stands out in this industry.” Jac Dalton


“…….Projected images behind the band illustrate the subject matter of most of the songs and guide you through their journey.  The music has an unapologetic hat tip to the 70’s. No bad thing and their sound and show are big enough for any arena.” Ref: Pete McLaughlin; Owner of Distillery Studios, Adelaide and veteran of the London music scene.
