He has played on a number of movie soundtracks including ‘Crocodile Dundee’, ‘Evil Angels’, ‘The Man from Snowy River II’,’ Boulevard of Broken Dreams’, and ‘Breakaway and Muggers’.
McLachlan formed BASS-IC INSTINCT in 1996 to explore traditional and new musical directions for bass playing and to showcase Warwick instruments.
Some of McLachlan’s key achievements include being inducted into the R & R Hall of Fame New Zealand in 2008, receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award for major contributions to the world of rhythm sections and education and performing at the Cape Breton Drum Festival Canada in 2010.
He is also proud of the song ‘Reconciliation’ that he co-wrote and produced to commemorate the inaugural world Reconciliation Day and a tribute concert to Nelson Mandela.
Of late, McLachlan’s collaboration with blues guitarist, singer-songwriter Geoff Achison earned the title ‘Album of The Year 2012’.
He has also recently released his very own first solo album titled ‘Roger This Roger That’ – a soundscape chill out CD that takes listeners on a musical journey filled with an array of the sights and sounds which have influenced the talented multi-instrumentalist, engineer, and producer over the course of his lengthy musical life.
