Evocative, melodic, creative and poetic, Stuart is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and songwriter who creates a wondrous mix of Contemporary Folk, Jazz Blues and World Music, beautiful songs and sensational instrumentals.
In September 2017, Stuart completed his second international tour, with performances in NYC, London, Amsterdam, Hamburg, regional Germany and festivals in the UK, Netherlands and Germany. The solo tour was a great success, receiving fantastic responses from audiences everywhere and excellent concert reviews in Germany.
He has been invited back to Europe for concert and festival performances in Germany and the Netherlands in May, June and July 2018, including a songwriters’ concert series in Westfalen and a performance at the famous Concerto record store in Amsterdam to promote his new album ATMOSPHERE.
Consolidating on his successful, 18-week international solo tour
in 2017, partly funded by an Australian Cultural Fund campaign, Stuart has the opportunity to return to Europe in 2018, with concert and festival bookings already secured in Germany, the Netherlands and UK.
Professional development and growth are key to this ongoing success. Stuart has been in a teaching and mentoring program with one of the best musicians and guitarists in the world, JIm Campilongo, who is based in Brooklyn, New York City. Jim’s CV includes working with Norah Jones, Martha Wainwright, and is an acclaimed instrumentalist in his own right. Stuart hopes to return to NYC for more mentoring sessions with Jim, who is helping take his musicianship and career to the next level.
