Kade is a young up-and-coming jazz pianist from the far south coast of NSW and at eighteen he is already a well-seasoned performer with two albums recorded over the last couple of years and another one due later this year.
He has twice been selected as a participant, and once as mentor, for the Juilliard Winter Jazz School and is in his sixth year of studying classical piano with Professor Bill Hawkey, former Director of the ANU School of Music.
His latest album 'Sierra' features his current piano trio with Steve Clark on bass and Ken Vatcher on drums, both highly experienced professional musicians who have played and recorded with some of Australia's top artists.
(Acclaimed percussionist David Hewitt will play drums instead of Ken for the trio’s Four Winds performance.) Kade is widely recognised by senior musicians as a highly talented young musician with exceptional ability and a significant future.
