I started my first band, The Pups, when I was 19. We were obsessed with vocal harmonies, sixties pop rock and dressing like The Strokes. During this time, I began a course in Fine Arts at RMIT University in Melbourne, focussing on music composition, sound design and recording. The Pups eventually disintegrated after I nearly punched my best friend and lead singer in the face after months of creative disagreements. Thankfully the friendship survived. Luckily some other friends were forming a band, which became Total Giovanni. We very quickly built a large fan base and started playing festivals around Australia. I’ve had the pleasure of playing at Golden Plains, Splendour In The Grass, Falls Festival, Beyond The Valley and many others as well as sold out national tours. During this time I produced all of Total Giovanni’s recorded music. We released five singles over a three year period and in 2108 we finally released our debut album, Euphoria, on Remote Control Records. Throughout this period, I have been working full time from Fall Back Studios where I co-write, record, produce and mix for other artists as well as composing, sound designing and mixing for films, television commercials and branded content.
