Industry Speak

2020

September

Something good to come out of the Covid nightmare, has been more access to workshops I would normally have not been able to participate in, due to distance.

I have had the opportunity to attend multiple ‘I Manage My Music’ workshops online with Jen Cloher based in Melbourne.

I have also had the pleasure to listen to none other than, acclaimed singer songwriter, Mary Gauthier in Nashville, give a Masterclass on Universal Songwriting. Because of this participation I was offered a spot in a series of online Songwriting Workshops with Mary, throughout the month of September. Despite the very early Sunday mornings (for me) I am buzzed to be able to do this.

COVID CANCELLATIONS

The dreaded virus has swung its death scythe across many industry events and the Songwriters Conference was yet another casualty. I did manage to do a couple of terms of iheartsongwriting club and have a swag of new songs to work with.

March

I have been fortunate to score a pass to the 2020 Australian Songwriters Conference on the June long weekend. For this, I will be helping out on the iheartsongwriting club stand over the weekend.

February

I will be getting along to another iheartsongwriting club workshop Saturday 29th, with Francesca de Valence. The Box Factory has opened its doors once again and all are invited.

Truth & Trickery

Two Voices ‘changing the strings on your heart’

This was the final show for my Truth & Trickery Tour and the one show only with Cathy Dobson from Victoria. We were rewarded with a wonderful attentive crowd at The Wheaty. What a wonderful Sunday afternoon and I was so pleased Cathy got to show off her stuff in front of such a fabulous audience. The best way to finish off my first ever tour! You can hear more of her music in online stores and streaming services.

I have had a fabulous time on this journey telling tales to audiences in Melbourne, Brisbane, Barmera and Adelaide. Many thanks to those of you who have attended gigs, musicians who have supported me and all of those who have bought my music, also the radio stations and presenters who are playing my music. You make it all worth while.

Womstock

As the name suggests, Womstock is a Wombat Festival with Live Entertainment, cruelty free food, fun, games and laughter on the  banks of the beautiful lake at the Flaxley Wombat Sanctuary. I was proud to support these wonderful ladies and their furry friends.

The great news is, they managed to raise in excess of $10,000! So huge thanks to all of you who bought tickets, merchandise food, raffle tickets, donated and volunteered.

” This was the sanctuary’s very first open day and a very important fundraiser to help raise funds for a fire bunker for the special needs wombats this fire season.”

Almost Okay in Melrose

Perfect Place

In September, I travelled to my favourite Flinders Ranges town of Melrose, but not for the sadly missed Music Muster. When the Muster was still a thing, I discovered the perfect place for a live shoot and promised I would return. The Holy Trinity Anglican Church offers perfect acoustics and a glorious light.  I knew this was the best location for a gentle murder ballad and it did not disappoint.  We took advantage of this exquisite building to portray a sad tale, but one clothed in a rich ambience.

Thanks goes to Fr John Fowler for arranging access and facilitating the extended time required.

Taking It Well EP

I was pleased to finally release my EP ‘Taking It Well‘, because these songs have been burning a hole on my shelf since 2017..  These songs deal with stories of people dealing with crazy situations but still, ‘taking it well’. ‘Fly’ is dedicated to two Australians executed in Bali and how they turned their lives around in prison.

The tracks have been downloaded by a number of radio stations and played on various shows across the country. I was also able to feature it as guest artist on Radio Adelaide‘s Songcatcher program.

Semaphore Music Festival

Well this year 2018, I made my debut appearance at the Semaphore Music Festival. Monday October 1, saw me on the BSide Community Stage in Mundy St, Port Adelaide. I kicked off the Monday lineup and was followed by Dave Robinson; Amy Jennifer; Moose Hair; James Hickey and Kylie Brice. An equally awesome lineup was inside Hart’s Flour Mill. Lovely close to a fantastic festival.
