Personal information

Official Website

Liam has been playing live and recording with bands since the age of 14 after picking up the sticks at age 11. He has played many different genres such as pop, rock, jazz, funk, punk, latin and big band which have all had a profound influence on the way that he plays his main genre of choice: progressive metal. During his mid-late teens the most notable bands he was involved with were Sonic Euphoria and Asphyxia, the latter of which supported Whitechapel and Psycroptic as well as winning the award for "Best Youth Band" in the Australian Metal Awards in 2009. It is also worth noting that Liam was part of the Rostrevor College Big Band that took out 2nd place in the National School Band Competition 'Generations in Jazz' in 2008. He was also selected by acclaimed brass player James Morrison as a Future Finalist for the James Morrison Scholarship in the same year. The following year he completed a Diploma in Jazz from the University of Adelaide.

Liam joined Adelaide metal heavyweights Double Dragon in mid-late 2010 at the age of 19. Seeing as the band had played national tours with the likes of Slayer, Megadeth, Chimaira and The Haunted it was an easy decision to make. While with Double Dragon he played shows all around Australia including shows with Soilwork, Darkest Hour, Carnifex and Tim "Ripper" Owens. The band released their sophomore album Sons of Asena on the 4th of December 2011 which received airplay on Triple J and was followed by extensive touring around Australia.

Following the dissolution of Double Dragon in May 2012, Liam formed the band Voros with two of his band mates from Double Dragon. Since then, Voros has released an EP, a standalone single along with a music video, and the album Diseased Deity, which was released in September 2015 through Truth Inc Records. The band has toured around Australia several times and played with such notable bands as At the Gates, Napalm Death, Arcturus, Kataklysm, Entombed A.D., Psycroptic, Be'lakor and King Parrot. 2016 saw the band tour Taiwan and China including Wake Up Festival in Tapei.

In January 2015, Liam joined Adelaide progressive metal band Dyssidia, who have since played shows with international heavyweights Opeth, Trivium, TesseracT, Between the Buried and Me, Katatonia, Fallujah, The Ocean, as well as regular shows with Aussie veterans Caligula's Horse & Voyager. Dyssidia have now released 3 EPs and toured Australia several times. The band is currently recording their new album to be released in mid-2019 with overseas touring to follow.

Liam has also been playing live with Sydney progressive metal guitarist James Norbert Ivanyi since September 2016, with the band playing shows around Australia as well as an appearance at UK Tech Fest in July 2017 alongside bands such as Obscura, The Black Dahlia Murder, Beyond Creation, Exivious, Northlane and many more. International supports include Haken and Katatonia, as well as The Ocean and Monuments as part of the Progfest 2019 tour.

Other bands Liam has played session drums for include Melbourne's Alarum, plus Adelaide's Obsidian Aspect and One Step Beyond.

Liam is currently playing live with Dyssidia, Voros, Alarum and James Norbert Ivanyi as well as occasional gigs with various bands spanning multiple genres. Past jazz/cover band work has included playing with the Baker Boys Band, Party Club Band, Triplescore, Mr Goodnight, Bill Parton Trio, Chesterfield Brass and Twisted J.
