Rory was a finalist in the Tamworth Country Music Festival (open age) Busking Competition, (2016/2017), played a half-hour set on the Busking Stage at Bluesfest, and graduated from the CMAA Junior Academy of Country Music in 2016. He was the youngest participant to do so at each of those events. Later in 2016, Rory was invited on stage by Julia Zemiro to perform an impromptu blues number at a "RocKwiz Live" show, which he did to resounding applause and the accolades of the RocKwiz team. He was also named the Primary Category winner at the Australian National Busking Championships in November 2016.
An aspiring songwriter, Rory’s influences span blues, country and rock. He has supported Australian country artists such as ARIA nominated Bill Chambers, Golden Guitar winners The Bushwackers, Catherine Britt, Amber Lawrence, Fanny Lumsden and Bennett, Bowtell & Urquhart and has shared the stage with former AC/DC bassist, Mark Evans, Australian blues guitarist/vocalist, Shane Pacey, and has even played the maracas with Carlos Santana at Bluesfest 2017!
