I've been a musician (composer, singer, guitarist and producer) for as long as I've been a filmmaker, and enjoy the collaborative nature of both disciplines.
From 1994 to 2006 I was a founding member of acclaimed Australian independent band The Dumb Earth, who released Walk The Earth (1997), Auld Lanxiety Attack (1999), Blessings In Disguise (2001), Old Days (2004) and Dry Land (2006). In 1996, I founded The Hired Guns. To date, we've released 3 albums: Between Here & The Night (2002), You Know Something (2010) and Golden Home (2014). In 2005, I teamed up with with singer Karen Vogt and musician Paul Cartwright on a studio project called Kurosawa, releasing one album, Your Star Has Fallen Over, in 2009.
