Schwartz commented that his work was “immediately recognisable as uniquely Australian”.

His musical Avoid was part of the 2011 New Musicals Australia inaugural season. His other works, Song Cyclist and The Big Gay Cruise have since entertained audiences in various festivals. He is now a regular featured writer in the Home Grown musicals initiative, run by Hedger and Nicholson.
