What is HUGE?

I am a proudly independent Tasmanian musician and HUGE is my debut album! It's a hometown record that tells stories about growing up in Hobart, the journey of self discovery and takes a deep dive into my emotional world.

I am enormously proud of HUGE. It’s full of joy, love, loss, adventure and spontaneity. It’s raw, vulnerable, honest and completely me. Heavily influenced by my love for Funk, Soul and Hip Hop - it’s the strongest collection of songs I have ever written.

I feel so blessed to be able to make songs for a living and this is made possible by the support and generosity of collaborators and people who connect with my music.

Where does the money go?

There are a lot of costs involved in successfully releasing an album. The process includes composing, recording, refining, distributing and marketing.


Your support will help me:

  • Have the album mixed by Allan McConnell, one of Tassie’s finest exports and half of electronic jazz duo, Close Counters.
  • Have the album mastered by Wayne Sunderland, previously worked with Dom Dolla, Young Franco and Golden Features.
  • Manufacture and distribute CD’s, Vinyl and merch.
  • Pay the wonderful Tasmanian artist Aaron Ashwood for designing the album artwork. 
  • Pay for the creation of music videos.
  • Obtain media publicity and online advertising.

Cost Breakdown:

Recording sessions with featured artists - $1800

Mixing and mastering - $4000

Album Artwork Design - $500

Video production - $2000

Publicity - $1700


Total Target: $10,000


This is by no means an exhaustive list of the costs associated with putting this record out into the world. Any funds beyond our target will go towards Postage, Photography, Website design, Outstanding recording costs, Merchandise production and Touring!

How can I help?

If you would like to hear this finished record, please consider pre-ordering it here digitally, on CD or vinyl. There are also a number of other exclusive rewards on this page which I had fun dreaming up and I hope some of you will enjoy!
