So excited to share a video from the Brisbane International Jazz Festival featuring a lullaby written for my two daughters from my new album Blueberry Ash. The album is available in CD, digital download or 180g Blue Vinyl on this link: band camp

This recording is the culmination of collaborating with some very special people over the last few years and prior to release was selected as a finalist for the 2017 Queensland Music Awards.
