This exclusive trio goes beyond expectation and continues to receive an overwhelming response from every performance. The music creates a wonderfully intimate experience, playing a range from Latin / Blues to laid back dinner / cocktail party music and is the only Jazz Harp Trio in Australia!
Michelle Smith has been performing the Jazz Harp with various Jazz ensembles and vocalists since her return from studying in Boston, USA, gaining knowledge that the Double Bass and Tenor Saxophone will uniquely match the class and elegance for such a rare and unique style of music.
Michelle is joined by saxophonist Dylan Hooper and bassist Robin Murray, two of Perth’s most respected musicians.
Whilst primarily a jazz-based performer and composer, Dylan Hooper has won two Perth Dance Music Awards with hip-hop collective “The Typhoons” and a WAMI Award with Boom! Bap! Pow! Dylan also composed for and performed in Barking Gecko Theatre Company’s recent adaptation of Shaun Tan’s “The Red Tree”.
After gaining an Honours degree in Jazz Performance at WAAPA, Robin Murray has travelled Australia and the world. Whilst touring with various Jazz orchestras, he has played with artists such as James Morrison, Kate Ceberano, Fred Wesley and Allen Vizzutti. Robin has also toured extensively throughout Europe, the UK and Canada with Australian singer/songwriter Toby, to great acclaim.
