2018 AIR AWARDS NOMINEE SPOTLIGHT - MY NAME IS NOBODY


Nominated in this year's awards in the BEST INDEPENDENT JAZZ ALBUM OR EP category, is My Name Is Nobody.

My Name is Nobody uses the lush textures of the pedal steel guitar, the endless sonic possibilities of the keyboards and the hypnotic properties of the drum beat to create sounds to get completely lost in.

“My name is Nobody” is a sonic break from a complicated, noisy world.
 Ambient tones and simple melodies. 

Featuring three of Perth’s outstanding musicians:

Ben Vanderwal is one of the most in demand Jazz drummers in Australia. In 2015 Ben received the WAM “Best Jazz Artist” award. He has performed around the world including tours of the U.K., France, Ireland, India the U.S.A., China, Korea, Taiwan, Phillipines. Japan, New Zealand, New Caledonie, Indonesia, Hong Kong, China and Thailand. 

Tom O’Halloran leads his own original jazz piano trio outfit and conducts orchestras from time to time, composes new classical music, plays wild old analog synthesizers and even rock guitar.

Lucky Oceans is a fixture on the world music scene. The winner of 2 Grammy awards, he is listed in Hugh Gregory’s book, “1000 Great Guitarists” and has been called ‘one of the most influential steel guitarists of his generation.'
