The last couple of years have been a very fruitful and productive period for me creatively.
Last year (2016) I commenced my Masters of Music in composition and got through the Graduate Certificate component relatively unscathed. I composed some new tunes for Hammerhead, which were recorded and filmed and are on my YouTube channel.
The research paper that I completed last semester on Dale Barlow was a steep learning curve, but very rewarding and I was extremely pleased to get a distinction for my final submission.
This year (2017) I will continue with my studies upgrading to the Graduate Diploma.
I have some nice gigs coming up with ‘Soul Roots Revival Band’ (see gig page) which is a very exciting project showcasing the wonderful vocal talents of Michael Duchesne and Lana Rita Sayah, supported by a killer 6 piece band paying homage to the great Soul & Roots Artists. (See projects page for more)
My sextet ‘Hammerhead’ has risen in stature since the release of our debut CD ‘Mozaic’ in 2014. (See online store if you want a copy)
We have played some amazing gigs both locally and nationally including Manly Jazz Festival ’14, Thredbo Jazz Festival ’15 & ‘16, Capitol Jazz Project (Canberra) ’15 and Wangaratta Jazz & Blues Festival ’15 and recommence our monthly residency at Lazybones Lounge in Marrickville in April. We will hopefully be recording a new CD later in the year.
Please have a browse around the pages and keep in touch by checking the Gig Page and if you want to be on my mailing list go to the contacts page and send me a message.
I look forward to hearing from you. All the best Jason Bruer
