CURRENTLY PLAYING WITH
Elko Fields: a two-piece scuzz-rock band from Brisbane. I play the role of frontwoman on lead guitar and vocals.
USUALLY FOUND PLAYING
Heavy rock with a kick of blues. It’s always as loud, low and long as possible.
YEARS ON THE FRETBOARD
I’d say approximately 23 years, or 8,395 days to be precise. I picked it up around age five.
I’m a sucker for concocting semitone bends, drones and a bunch of triads. I fell in love with tuning to C standard and fumbling my way around there a lot.
I grew up dribbling over my Dad’s 1966 Fender Strat. My grandfather bought me a little black Fender Squier at age five, and my parents tried to convince me it was just as good so I would stop smacking nice guitars into walls when I was trying to pick them up.
Elko Fields has me on a Gibson Les Paul Custom. It’s a complete back-breaker onstage, but that hasn’t been enough to stop me.
The bulk of my rumble comes from a Black Arts Pharoah Fuzz and a Crowther Prunes & Custard. The two were meant to be together.
Whisky and rehearsing in the dark.
I’ve always admired Hendrix’s ability to switch seamlessly between lead and rhythm. As the sole guitarist in a band, it’s pretty inspiring.
Zed Charles from The Royal Artillery is always a treat to watch onstage. He knows heavy blues like the back of his hand.
We just released the ElkoFields EP on 12-inch vinyl with a bunch of accompanying film clips.
