A brief history… Started playing seriously at age 10/12, spending my early days embracing classical percussion at The Sydney Conservatorium of Music and Sydney High… ***To the present, when I tour year round with some of Australia’s finest musicians!! I am chuffed I scored a gratifying life, built around the wonderful world of Music.
Dabbled a little in Event Ownership and promotion … throw in a little Philanthropy (Australian Ambassador: www.PlayingForChange.com) Wow. What an honor! I see the project as the perfect opportunity to exercise my altruistic desire to ‘give back’ to an industry that has both inspired and treated me so well. I was instrumental in the huge success of the Playing For Change Band’s first ever Australian tour in March/April 2013. During those two months, the band played several shows to massive crowds at Australia’s biggest annual festival (Byron Bay’s Bluesfest) and were enthusiastically received as the support act for Robert Plant throughout his national tour.

A pinnacle of my career was playing at Bluesfest 2014 and 2015! The 25th Anniversary of this Premier Australian Music Festival – Played with GLENN CARDIER AND THE SIDESHOW in 2014 – absolutely – blowing them away! – & receiving, rave reviews in both Local Byron Papers! Then returned in 2015 with GENEVIEVE CHADWICK & The Stones Throw!
Then! pinch me again, my good fortunes continued! May 2015,off to “Blues On Broadbeach” with The SHANE PACEY TRIO. We were one of the Festival Highlights! Our new album Watch Out! sold 113 at the CD Store over the 3 days – We had the time of our lives – (If you’d like to purchase the album – Go to www.shanepaceytrio.com.au – using PayPal – You’ll love it.
