"With his progressive, electrified, solemn and churning second full album, Tyson Smith has carved out a niche groove in which to reside in the framework of modern NZ blues and folk" - New Zealand Musician Magazine
Tyson's 2015 album 'The Hollow Tree' features myself on Minimoog bass and the legend Rick Cranson on drums.
Thomas Oliver is an award-winning singer-songwriter who is also internationally recognised as one of the world’s leading players of the Weissenborn lap-steel guitar.
Thomas had me record on seven of the tracks on Thomas' latest album 'Floating in the Darkness' on Hammond Organ, Rhodes and Minimoog, and you'll find me on stage with him for his full band shows.
Award-winning singer songwriter Mel Parsons is well recognised as one of New Zealand’s established songwriting stars.
I recorded Hammond, Rhodes and Piano on Mel Parsons' first album 'Over My Shoulder' in 2009, which went on to be a finalist in the 2009 New Zealand Music Awards for Best Folk Album of the Year. I also played Hammond Organ and Piano on her third and latest album, 'Drylands', released in 2015.
miles calder & the rumours
Nestled somewhere between Ryan Adams, Bob Dylan and 70s Neil Young, Miles Calder & The Rumours’ brand of atmospheric Americana dresses Calder’s heartfelt songs with striving harmonies and earthy tones.
The Rumours called me in to play the Hammond Organ parts on their latest self-titled album, released in 2016.
No-one plays the blues like Darren Watson. Over the better part of three decades he has developed a style that, while touching on all of the greats who inspired him, is personal, powerful and identifiably his own."

My biggest role recording Hammond Organ at the time (2010) was on Darren Watson's album 'Saint Hilda's Faithless Boy'.
