We also welcome to the Afrodescia/Alumbra family the very very talented Simon Fissenden on bass and vocals. One of the best musicians in Australia stepping in while Jason is on his X Factor journey. Simon joins Dave Matthews (drums), Aaron Mendoza (keys and vocals) and myself from this Sunday onwards. (27th August). If you have not seen him do his thing make sure you come down this week. A voice to die for and one of the funkiest bass players Ive ever had the pleasure of working with.

2014

What an amazing year this is going to be! 2014 has started with some incredible opportunities for me..the biggest so far was being asked to open for Chaka Khan at the Plenary last Sunday night. I jumped at the chance and organised some of Melbourne’s best musicians to be on stage with me that night (Dave Matthews, Jason Heerah, Brad J Green and Simon Fisenden). The venue was beautiful, the crowd so receptive! It was nerve wracking to open for a legend like Chaka, but the crowd helped me to relax and really enjoy the whole experience! I dont think any of us actually wanted to get off stage!
I have some more exciting projects coming up this year which I will post about as they happen!
Happy New Year everyone…hope 2014 is as productive for you as it is for me.
