Blue Macaw

Ahoy there bird watchers!

Blue Macaw is an alter ego of Chris Busietta - an award winning opera and musical theatre performer from Melbourne, Australia who has thrilled audiences across Australia and Europe.

Driven by an insatiable urge to create music, Blue Macaw now spreads his wings into a wider range of musical forms and sounds.

The result is a unique mix of intensely dark progressive, alternative & folk rock originals.

Make no mistake about it. Blue Macaw is an endangered species.

In an era of common rock progressions and synthetic vocal sounds, he combines genuine vocal technique with aggressive guitar playing, strong lyricism and subtle variations.

If you like hearing artists where no two songs are the same, try this virtuoso on for size.

On top of tearing up the theatres on two continents, he has played in several bands around Melbourne, including alternative-progressive rock band Myopia, Rodney, The Medicine Men and folk a capella group The Harrison Street Quartet.

He released his debut album, The Shadows, in 2011 and his long-awaited follow up, Interludes by the Sea, in 2014. His third album "Growing up in Love" will be released on 1st June, 2016.
