2013 - Wow, what a year!

2013 kicked off with a huge concert for the Adelaide Fringe Festival, which featured Pete Murray and his band performing with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. Rod composed 2 original pieces and created all of the arrangements for the show, adding parts for 49 piece orchestra to 14 of Pete's most popular songs.

This was followed up with the creation of 12 more orchestral arrangements for the special edition 10th anniversary re-release of Pete's iconic 7x platinum selling album Feeler, which includes a bonus disc of the album with 44 piece orchestra added to each song, as well as a bonus track of the INXS classic Don't Change. Rod also directed and conducted the Bulgarian Symphony Orchestra in Sofia for the recording sessions.

He is currently working on string arrangements for the Feeler national tour, and on arrangements for Pete's new album, due out in 2014.
