Melbourne-based guitarist and composer, Harry Tinney, is quickly
establishing a name for himself as part of the improvised music scene. In just
over three years in Melbourne, he has played in the bands of notable
Australian jazz exponents Barney Mcall, Julien Wilson, Robert Burke and
Tony Gould. Harry played on Barney Mcall’s vinyl launch of his acclaimed
album titled “Mother of Dreams and Secrets”, as well as the CD launch for
Mcall’s “Zephryix” suite.
Harry was awarded the Allan Zavod Composition Prize in 2018, the Zelman
Cowen School of Music Bornstein Jazz Guitar Prize in 2019, and the title of
“best third-year student in music specialist study” in 2019. Harry regularly
performs as sideman and leader at many of the prestigious jazz venues the
city of Melbourne has to offer. Harry held a two-year residency at the Moat
Bar in the CBD with his guitar trio, and curated a weekly duo project at
Spencer & Co Provedore in Carlton in 2018.
