Guitarist/composer Stephen Magnusson is one of the most versatile and distinctive musicians in Australia. After spending several years teaching in Switzerland in the 1990s (being nominated for the Swiss Fellowship award in 1999), he returned to Australia in 2000, and was co-winner of the 2000 National Jazz Guitar Award at Wangaratta. His impressive C.V. includes performances or recordings with artists including Charlie Haden’s Music Liberation Orchestra, Meshell Ndegeocello, Rickie-Lee Jones, Tim Berne, George Garzone, Jim Black, Paul Grabowsky, Mike Nock, Elixir and Vince Jones.
In 2013 he received the $30,000 Melbourne Music Prize, while his album Magnet (on LP and CD), won the 2013 ‘Bell’ Australian Jazz Award for Contemporary Jazz Album of the Year. Having recorded a solo album, 14 Little Creatures (ABC Jazz) back in 2007, he will bring a wealth of experience in performing two Solo sets (with a guest or two). Visit www.mag.net.au
