Jarek Wojcik has always considered himself a ‘storyteller’, a composer of narratives; much of his oeuvre has been concerned with his recollection of a childhood from Poland, frequent travel to and from Europe, and his own personal musings on life. 21 Songs continues Jarek’s interest in storytelling albeit couched within the concept of a song.

Adam Simmons has been a professional musician since the age of 13, when he made his first recording with his musician father. Since then he has participated in numerous music festivals, notably the Melbourne International Jazz Festival and the Melbourne International Arts Festival; he’s played for over a decade at the Wangaratta Jazz and Blues Festival; and has played with many international artists, including Ernest Ranglin (Jamaica) and Nigel Kennedy (UK); and he has made a number of recordings, his most recent in 2009 entitled “Adam Simmons”. Adam’s repertoire includes: saxophones, clarinets, flutes, shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute) and the fujara (Slovakian wooden flute).
