Meet Stu

Good music has been a staple in my life for as long as I can remember; my heart beats along to the music.

After 4+ years traveling the world with a guitar in hand, and after 8+ years in a corporate, (mostly) desk-bound career I decided to take a chance, follow my dreams and make a living out of music. I also started a yoga studio in Hobsonville, called Kanuka Yoga Space (but that's a different story).

From playing live music in bars, restaurants, at birthday parties, corporate functions, Christmas celebrations, weddings, farmers markets, busking on Auckland's Queen Street, all the way to North Island tours playing original music, NZ On Air music videos, sponsorship contracts and Spotify singles, I am motivated to up my game on every occasion.

At present, you'll find me:

  • Gigging weekly at iconic Auckland venues, Corporate Events and Weddings

  • Writing and Producing new music using Ableton Live

  • Playing with some of NZ's most talented musicians and vocalists; learning new songs, developing my vocal harmonies and refining my jazz improvisation skills

I'm proud of my musical talent, of my ability to create positive relationships and networks, and I'm confident I can make your next event a huge success.


My sound equipment and lighting is of the highest standards; QSC K10.2 PA speakers, Martin acoustic guitar, Boss looping station + assorted Boss pedals, Pioneer RX2 DJ Controller and a Yamaha 12 Channel Mixer.

Corporate Xmas Event - Live Music

Stu was great to deal with and on short notice he provided fantastic entertainment, a professional set up and a willingness to go the extra mile.


He did requests and had no issues reading the room and adjusting songs and levels for our Xmas party.


I would happily recommend Stu and use him again for future events.

Corporate Awards Night

Live Music + DJ

Stu performed at our annual company party, and he was the perfect vibe. He played some chilled tunes for the start of the evening; he's a a talented musician that's for sure.


He then switched to the DJ decks to play party beats so we could rip it up on the dance floor.


Stu was great at reading the audience and played tunes that suited our diverse range of employees and music tastes. Thanks Stu for making our company party an awesome night!

DJ Set for Public Event

Stu is the type of DJ you can rely on for consistent good vibes. Whether the crowd was up for a boogie, or a chill parooz through the event, Stu created an atmosphere they didn't know they could love so much.


It meant our event was more than seamless, it was epic.


I highly recommend Stu for any event you're running, an absolute breeze to work with, and brought so much joy to our attendees.
