Originally from Bowral in the Southern Highlands of NSW, Shane began playing Rock & Roll in a band at age 11. Eventually he moved to Sydney and turned professional in 1976, developing a music career as a 'singing' drummer, evolving from one band to the next. Along the way learning new instruments and studying music theory.

In the past 25 years, Shane has worked with most major names in Australian music, covering all style variations, Rock & Roll, Pop, RNB, Country, Blues, Soul, Swing, Celtic, Cajun, Latin & Folk. 

Shane has played and sung on over 40 albums and performed his way through innumerable jingles and soundtracks. All this time he was an aspiring songwriter, having had some of his tunes recorded by other artists.

Eventually he stopped touring for a while, following a decision to work hard at his guitar playing and focus on his songwriting. 

His debut solo CD ,"7,000 Miles" was released independently in 2002. Made up of 13 original acoustic guitar based songs full of melody and harmony, in what has been described as "Rock Americana". Shane is now a regular contributor to the Sydney live music scene performing as a solo artist and adding musicians to the unplugged duo or trio format. In the last year he has formed his own band, "The Cuckoo's Nest", made up of some of the very best musicians the city of Sydney has to offer!

Now in 2007, Shane has recorded his second album entitled 'Shaking Up The Mystery" showcasing 11 brand new songs.  This album will be released in stores in February.
