Well-crafted and laid-back Jazz-Pop is the musical premise for the 4-month old Canberran duo Burnish. Ally Hocking-Howe (21) and Nick Chenery (22) are ANU School of Music Students with an eclectic repertoire comprising well-known pop and jazz standards. Since November 2020, Nick and Ally have played a number of private and corporate functions across the ACT with nothing but glowing reviews from patrons. Through the tasteful instrumentation of gorgeous electrified Jazz-Violin and Jazz-Box Guitar, Burnish aim to promote a smooth, jubilant and easy-on-ear atmosphere. With a laid-back vocal approach and stylistic improvisation – Burnish provide the sound to make you close your eyes and go
‘damn, that’s actually good’.
