With Special Guest MICHAEL RIDDELL
Bart Stenhouse has the muscle to settle any score. Musically speaking, that is. Packing a powerful ability to balance raw edge with feel good grooves, Bart’s music brilliantly blends fiery flamenco with cool jazz and rollicking Indian rhythms to create a sound that leaves the listener energised and ready for more.
Bart started on a musical journey from an early age. However, it wasn’t until recently that he found his true calling – world fusion music. Inspired by his travels across North America, India and Spain.
Wielding his weapons of choice, electric and flamenco guitar and electric mandolin, Bart teams up with original artists across the globe to explore and craft soundscapes not heard before. An experienced producer, Bart records and releases his compositions under his own label, Stenhouse Records.
Hailed as ‘one of the best up and coming jazz fusion artists’ by Indian slide guitar maestro and guru Pandit Debashish Bhattacharya after his performance at the 2016 India International Guitar Festival, the young Australian composer is fast building a reputation as an original, collaborative and innovative artist.
In 2017 Bart toured across Australia with gypsy jazz guitar legend Lulo Reinhardt (Germany) performing 15 shows around the country including a special performance as part of the Devonport Jazz Festival.
His focus now is in expanding his recording and production services in his Stenwood Studios in Byron Bay, New South Wales, as well as continuing to compose, record and produce his own music under his Stenhouse Records label. Not shy of sharing his extensive knowledge and skills, Bart also teaches from his studio in Byron Bay as well as on Skype.
