5AXN Hyper Blast
First of all, I love that this company is locally run, and supports Australia’s great Talent. But most importantly, it’s about the feel. Huge extended length, great weight balance, and huge marching style nylon tips. This is why I chose the 5AXN Hyper Blast Natural Series. These sticks play and feel great! I’ve been mixing up my styles for years and trying to find the right pair for just as long as I’ve been playing. Who would've thought the perfect set of sticks were right here locally.
Bunkering down recreating the sounds of Aussie rock from the early 2000’s with North Heights, whilst also appearing on a few pop records with some of the creative minds of Dukes of Windsor.
Even more varied works with a number of Australian Slam metal collaborators, to then acting as Mick Fleetwood in the notable Tusk – The Storybook of Fleetwood Mac with over 40 national shows this year alone.
Its been a busy and varied year so far, but even more to come next year with the Fishsticks Slam-team family.

Most memorable moments:
Earlier this year on tour with The Resignators and Los Kungfu Monkeys (Mex) was a huge 10 day trip. A broken bus, 10 makeshift campsites, a fatal heart attack, 6500km, and played some of the most iconic venues on my bucket list.
