possibilities” - John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

Geddes leads a quartet comprised of Sydney’s new generation of jazz stars. Featuring the stellar
quartet is beautifully synchronized to create unique sonic landscapes – expansive and uplifting music
that echoes the likes of Bill Frisell and Ry Cooder.
Geddes’ acclaimed debut album Parkside was released in 2021 with ABC Jazz as part of the ABC Jazz
Scholarship and the Jann Rutherford Memorial Award, bringing young Australian voices to the wider
public. Growing up in Griffith, much of the music on the album is inspired by places in the Riverina.
The Freedman Fellowship will enable me to take my music home and to
perform it not only in the places that inspired me but before the communities and people who have
shaped me. What an incredible privilege!” – Hilary Geddes
