In His Words: Voices of Fatherhood

Step inside modern fatherhood. The state. The practice. The meaning.



Award-winning composer-videographer and father Creswick (fka Liam Budge) has created a live-music-cinematic response to the contemporary experience of fathering through song, words, film, first-hand accounts… and unfiltered authenticity.

Nine fathers, nine interviews, nine lives. Different men, but all marked by the same seismic change.

Inspired by his own journey into fatherhood in 2018, Creswick has created an enthralling, surprising and utterly affecting performance event where intimate dad encounters hook into the pulse of a jazz-pop- folk-rock mix.

Experience music that sits at the intersection of jazz, pop, folk, and rock.  Experience visuals artfully composed, traversing wide open landscapes to working farms, suburban loungerooms and hills hoist backyards. 

Drawing musical inspiration directly from the interviews-turned-cinematic portraits, Creswick’s compositions feature his exceptional ensemble of Brett Williams, Ben Hauptmann, James Hauptmann. and Chris Pound. Together they open a window into fatherhood testing ideas of masculinity, role-models and parenting culture.

Taking something that cannot be expressed easily, 'In His Words' beautifully explores what fathers mean to us all in the most thrillingly unexpected manner.

A talent destined for wide acclaim…” The Australian
