23 February: Creswick (Liam Budge)
Hot off the heels of “In His Words: Voices of Fatherhood”, Liam Budge joins us at the Tuggeranong Arts Centre on Friday 23 February for the February Lakeside at 5 event.
Since releasing his debut jazz album to critical acclaim and a four star review in The Australian, Creswick (F.ka Liam Budge) has continued to establish himself as one of Australia’s leading vocalists and song-writers. In 2014 Creswick relocated to New York City to begin working on new musical ventures and projects. During this year Creswick recorded and played with New York City’s finest musicians including Chad Lefkowitz-Brown, Kris Bowers & Brad Williams. Liam also studied under Grammy-Winning Jazz Vocalist Kurt Elling.
Most recently Creswick launched his jazz project “Creswick” and released a self-titled Debut EP in 2018. This EP featured guitarist Nir Felder (John Mayer, Chaka Khan) and saxophonist Troy Roberts (Van Morrison, Jeff Tain Watts). Liam has performed on many of New York’s finest and storied stages, including Blue Note Jazz Club, Madison Square Garden, Jazz at the Lincoln Center, The Bitter End and Rockwood Music Hall.
Creswick has won several awards and recognitions including the Australia Arts Council’s ArtStart Scholarship, James Morrison Generations in Jazz Award and two ARTSACT scholarships.
