Between 2019-2022 I was involved as a musician performing in the Royal Brisbane Women’s Hospital and St Vincent’s Kangaroo point.
During my time in the project, I performed in cancer wards, common walkways, stairwells, physio wards and cafeterias for staff and patients alike.
The project was created to bring musicians into the hospital space and create a space that helped staff and patients escape their minds for a while. It was an amazing project to be involved in and during my time there I found many of my improvisations slowly turn into pieces that resonated with patients who walked past.
With the support of Niyi Adepoyibi and Studio 4EB, the album was recorded in February 2023.
A big thanks to Peter Breen and The Stairwell Project for your support of musicians the transformative experiences you’ve brought to many people’s lives.
May this album provide a soundtrack to relaxation, introspection, emotional release and pleasure.
