willkommen, bienvenue, welcome!
Here are some pictures! Within them are moments in time captured as still frames that detail alllll the notable shit that has been going on since the first of the first, 2015! Squiz at leisure.
1. I Spent some time writing with a hero of mine – Lior – at Sonic Lolly, Margaret River.
Lior, Noah Shilkin and me. Co-writing a song called ‘Damned If I Have To Live That Way’ at Sonic Lolly, Margaret River. February, 2015
Tracking at Sonic Lolly
The first proper gig I ever went to was to see Lior. It was in 2007 at The Quarry Amphitheater in Perth, and I was 14 – So this was pretty wild few days for me! It was a hashtag pleasure and a hashtag privilege. The resulting song will be released soon, and we’re pretty stoked with it.
2. I finally found myself a guitarist willing to help ease my guitar-y burdens. Welcome aboard to well-known band-slut, Jake Chaloner. That beard, that tone **heavyvibes**.
3. I recently started working at the greatest music store in the cosmos, Concept Music. It wasn’t long after this that I fell under it’s strange gear-y spell and in January, I bought myself a – lets just say, rather dear – ’64 Custom Shop Jazzmaster. Worth every penny and worth being penniless for. Photo by Rachael Barrett.
At The Moon Cafe with my new friend. February, 2015.
4. And I continue to make a rekkid. I’m really excited by these songs and direction of the project. Album HQ has changed bedrooms – from my old bedroom at my olds’ place, to my new bedroom at my new place in West Perth, where I live with my friends Ethan, Will (drums and bass, respectively), Ellen and John. It’s called ‘Sexy Dad Studios’, but I can’t remember why.

Ethan contributes in the kitchen – for once.
Bizarre mic placement. Dish rack?
Phew, it’s been big so far. It continues to be big, for 2015 is the year of the single, the record, the tour, the sheep AND the new live show, which features the fabulous fellows from my five-piece band.
I love writing/releasing/performing songs and telling you about it periodically/pictorially.
Thanks for joining me on this little journey,
PS – April and May are filled with fun shows! Statistically, it’s likely you’ll be available to come to at least one? You should if you’re keen to see what we’ve been getting up to recently. I’m particularly excited about headlining the fabulous room upstairs at the Astor Theatre on May 1!
