Powerhouse sextet Hammerhead burst onto the Sydney scene in 2010, playing music largely inspired by the late 50s and early 60s ‘Hard Bop’ movement. Formed by internationally acclaimed tenor saxophonist Jason Bruer, Andrew Robertson (alto sax and flute), Cam McAllister (trumpet), Greg Coffin (piano), Alex Hirlian (drums) and Brendan Clarke (bass) make up the sextet.

Over the last few years, their music has morphed into a set of all original compositions from the pen of band leader Bruer, showcasing his eclectic array of disparate influences including hard edged Urban Jazz, Hard Bop, Funk and Chamber Jazz illustrating a considerable contemporary shift in approach and style.

2019 saw the release of their second CD ‘Turning Point’ which contains ten original compositions by bandleader Jason Bruer, showcasing his array of disparate influences.
