Juzzie is a walking, talking, singing example of how it pays to follow your heart. Not that money is the point here – far from it. The real point is that Juzzie is one of those truly creative souls who makes a living out of doing something he absolutely loves.

As a young father, tired of late nights on the pub circuit, Juzzie made a conscious decision to leave the pubs and take his music to the people and the streets. So he took up busking, mostly at local markets on the NSW north coast, drawing bigger and more enthusiastic crowds each time he played. In this way Juzzie created a reputation for himself, becoming a true grassroots phenomenon. He is now also a festival circuit favorite, loved for his energetic and awe-inspiring live performances.

A true musical virtuoso, Juzzie gives performances that are marked by an amazing ability to play guitar, harmonica and percussion at the same time using all of his body. “it is like dancing with music” he said. It seems he is at home holding anything that makes a sound, and he combines this with a real rhythmic talent and a raw, warm vocal style. The result is truly engaging, mesmerizing music that makes you want to move and leaves you feeling inspired.
