Artie is a local songwriter / vocalist / guitarist who has been spilling his musical seeds all around the far South Coast for decades.
Born in England, Artie migrated to Australia when he was 5. His musical life kicked up big time when, at age 10, he scored a role in the His Majesty's Theatre ( Melbourne ) production of Oliver.
Artie moved to Wyndham, on the far South Coast, at age 32.
He established the local legends "Lounge Lizards' with whom he continued to perform whilst also playing in 'The Chevys' rock band, the 'Southerly Buster Band' and 'Black Velvet'.
We didn't see Artie again until October 2019 when he appeared in The Shed again and recorded his original "Fields Of Hay"
We suspect Artie has plenty more great originals up his sleeve and hope to see him more frequently than every six years. We're too old to wait that long Artie!
Anyway, watch this space in hope.
