He danced magically!

Adelaide Advertiser

A treat of traditional and contemporary music.

Broadway World

He can sing - beautifully; dance - astonishingly; plays multiple instruments prodigiously (as well as being a dab-hand with a looper) and is a gifted communicator and raconteur.

Stage Whispers

Seriously impressive ... exciting and effervescent ... wonderfully fresh and contemporary ... warm and full of authenticity.
