A ‘Narrator of Life Stories’ – Getano is an award winning and celebrated singer, songwriter and storyteller of Scottish and Torres Strait Islander descent.
Getano’s songs are a fusion of poignant moments, lethal insight and real passion. As Getano translates his mixed heritage and life experience into judicious, emotional and engaging songs.

“One of my greatest passions is meeting interesting people, from fascinating and diverse places, listening to their ‘Life Stories’, as these stories help to enrich my life and inspire me to see what the world is truly about, and hopefully through my music I can inspire and enrich the lives of others along way” – Getano.
