My brand new EP, MAKES ME SMILE is out now. Taking a different route, this set of songs is composed for adults rather than for kids! All the songs have been composed, arranged and recorded by myself at my Stelino Studios here in Auckland, New Zealand. Mixing and mastering has been done by Canada’s Adam Fulton at Mix Medics!
My song “Happy Holidays” has won the 2nd place in the adult category of the NZ Ukulele Songwriting Awards!
It is a great honour to have won a place in such a highly contested songwriting competition!
