Eldafyre grew up in Shepparton, Victoria. His early 20’s were spent in the city of Melbourne. Now 38 he resides within the northern rivers of NSW or hidden in the mountains around Hepburn. His first official album was created in 2016. A dark jazz, smokey noir feeling with influences to the likes of Patti smith and Rodriguez. Written with intention, dedicated to love and the journey of spoken word is paramount to the brand ELDAFYRE, A Story. He likes to think of himself as a story teller. In 2017 ‘Islands in mind’ was formed as a 2nd album... Instead with an ‘island vibe’ feel. Beach sounds married with stories taking shape around the Byron coast. Dedicated to the oasis and the dream we are all trying to achieve. All his albums are collaborated with some of the best session musicians available in Australia. In 2018, the birth to a new beast arrived, 'death of the surrenders'. A third (punk/funk/rock) album. Australian and Melbourne music recorded at its finest. Eldafyre is a stylist studio musician, a poet. The latest album crafted to a garage rock jam vibe. In the years to come he will create an array and expansive collection of music to entice those seeking originality as they fall into the captivated sounds of a word smith, peace and big love. Three studio albums now mastered and created in two of the oldest and longest running recording venues. Allen Eaton & sing sing studios are Australian icons in music and film.
Eldafyre is currently half way in writing his first novel ‘Storybook of Franklinford’ found at storybookfranklinford.com. A book of 9 short stories taking place within an alternate and somewhat parallel future on earth.
This last project Eldafyre has also worked on his entire life. A photography exhibition taken from personal experiences. Artistic captures from real life presented in such a fashion that may distort or question your ideas in what you may be looking at. You can find some of his best work featured in 'spread', a hard back M'zine. Eldafyre wants you to see and hear and read things original and different. Be mesmerized and captivated. Who knows what the future has in store next whether it be music, writing or visual art. The world is the limit. Show less
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
