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.

Wizard Tone Studios

 Studio Time

Hot on the heels of our 2018 Umbrella show, ‘Two Chics and A BOOM!’ Emily A Smith and I went into Wizard Tone studios and began recording. We were joined by Holly Thomas, who flew from Melbourne and drummed up some excellent percussion. Local bass diva Shireen Khemlani and the wonderful Emma Luker added bottom and top to the mix.

FNQ Tripping

Northern Lights

My annual pilgrimage home coincided with my Mother’s birthday. Previously, I had been accompanied by my sister or my husband, but this year I made the trip on my ownsome.

The day after I arrive I performed at my Mother’s Aged Care Facility Happy Hour. We celebrated her and any other October born residents’ birthdays with music, wine and dancing. I had some special new songs to sing for her.

Mum turned 94!

Good Heart

A rather drawn out affair, recording began in September 2016.  With help from Emily A Smith, Ali Foster, Shireen Khemlani, Mick Albeck we laid down the beginnings of six new tracks. Under the steady mixing hand of Anthony Stewart at Red Brick Music and Neville Clark, Master of mastering, at Disk Edits I released a single ‘I Tried To Write A Christmas Song’ in time for Christmas.

Back in the studio in December, I made a start on a further four tracks and was overjoyed when the Sherrahs agreed to add their amazing harmonies. During 2017, the rest of tracks came together and I was able to launch Good Heart in November.

Adelaide Songs

What’s in store for 2020

_________________________________________________________________________________

Adelaide Town Hall event cancelled

Another casualty of COVID 19, Adelaide Songs have had to cancel the May event and will reschedule for later in the year – October  or November.  As a result of the move, I have had to resign from the project as I have an album to release and tour at the same time. Please keep an eye out for the new event.
