Stu's musically journey has been a life long..
From the early years being captivated by the record player at the family home,
til picking up the guitar at age 11...
“”“I asked my first guitar teacher how long if would take to learn to play?...
his response was...””The rest of your life!!””...how true he was..
Stu has been dedicated to live performance and production for over 30 years.
In addition to producing 10 solo EPs/albums,
his latest album 2021"Patio Of Life" was written over 2020 while in Covid 19 resrictions
"When I had swag of 12 songs or so I contacted renowned engineer Robin Mai
(John Butler Trio, Paul Kelly, Joe Camilleri, Gurrumul,Nick Cave ) to help me put the whole shebang together.
We chose Nicky Bomba’s Treehouse Studio in the mountains of North Eastern Victoria
as it had the perfect setting to create the vibe I wanted..
With the incredible talent of Nick Bomba on Drums(Bustamento/John Butler Trio)
and long time friend Jim Cowie on Violin
We swam in the river,quoted Bob Ross,laughed a lot, took little hiking trips and soaked up the energy of the valley...
The focused environment enabled 12 songs to come to light in the span of 7 days.
Every abode I’ve visited seems to have a central point of meeting and relaxing and spinning yarns- that's the Patio of Life.""
Stu has been a travelling musician for most part of the last 20 years or so,
his 20's saw him based in Toronto Canada playing the scene there,
or backpacking busking and performing around Europe,
or studying music in LA at Guitar Institute of Technology,
continuously learning the craft of guitar and songwriting..
His 2012 release "Elements" was a dream come true,recording at LAFX one of LA's top recording studio's in North Hollywood...
From performing regularly in his home town of Melbourne and the East Coast,
in 2011 Stu hit the road,heading to Western Australia,for what was meant to be a 6 month tour......turning this musician into a non stop touring artist
