STUART ' CAT' CORK

Stuart is a guitarist with over 20 years’ experience. He was very fortunate to have been raised by parents and grandparents who were professional musicians as he was able to absorb a great deal of musical knowledge from them at quite a young age.

He started his formal musical studies at age 6, progressing through AMEB piano and theory to 7th grade. At 15 he switched his focus to the guitar.

He continued his music studies at Sydney University as part of his Bachelor of Arts degree. Over the years, Stuart has performed and recorded with a number of Sydney bands, and as a solo artist, in a variety of styles.

He’s recently released an album titled “Feet in the Dirt”, where a portion of proceeds have gone towards StreetSmart Charity.
