I’m a singer/guitarist/songwriter from Melbourne, Australia. After encountering Roger Scruton’s philosophy on music, art and modern culture and Matthew B. Crawford’s writing on staying human in the digital age I started to think about Rock & Roll and the heyday of “classic rock” in terms of a tradition, within a fabric of traditions. Art is about redemption; Scruton taught me that. The challenge – should we accept it – is to make art that reminds us how to be human an an age that is trying to strip our humanity away from us.
