As a Kombumerri man with a passion for music and language development, Lann is deeply immersed in the heart of the Coast’s creative arts field.
Lann is a man with many hats. An indigenous multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer, director and creative designer. He seems to love the chaos and variety that his world offers. From recording and designing in his North Gold Coast studio to large scale audio and lighting gigs there is plenty to keep Lann occupied in between his 260 odd performance gigs per year. He’s instinctively a creative being, a musician, a vocalist and certainly most sort after.
Lann’s transition over recent years moving deeper into first nations structures has reaped rewards for his community and gifted a more intimate connection to country to him.
“I’m loving the journey and path that I’m on, discovering new ways to help and develope a new generation of language warriors, creating awareness of and connecting the Yugambeh Language to everyone through music, dance and visual art.”
Lann seems to be popping up everywhere with works in design, soundscape development, documenting and recording language, creating visual installations and structuring new ways of presenting language based “welcome to country” through the combination of music, dance and video elements.
Recent opportunities working on Country include 2018 Commonwealth games, Festival 2018, production co-ordination for Mobo festivals and Jarla events, GC Planning, HOTA Naidoc celebration 2019, Musical Direction for First nations Arts Ablaze 2019.
