Hi, It’s time for a long awaited update.
I know that this is designed for me to talk about myself and what’s been happening, but that’s kinda boring yeah? I want to write a blog that’s engaging and insightful but I don’t quite know how to at the moment, I know I can do it but maybe it’like take me a while to hit my strapes.
Interesting things that have happened to me in the last 6 months include, playing Ukulele in the latest Coles ad, which I don’t bring up in conversations. Kicking an awesome goal in the Hobart Community Cup football match for Reclink, you can watch that on YouTube and also dislocating my knee cap in the Melbourne Community Cup, also on YouTube.
I’ve had over 2 months off work rehabilitating my knee and as a side note I’ve been learning how to be single again, I’m pretty awkward.
What’s coming up?
Well I’ve got high hopes for Queensland, I leave on the 25th of September to play 15 gigs in 16 days, it’s going to be such a challenging and great experience I can imagine. The support up in far north queensland is amazing, it’s out of this world! I first went up north in 2012 to Wallaby Creek and to my surprise I’ve been invited back 3 times in the past 4 years. I’ve played two of those years at Black Mountain Unplugged which is an offshoot festival to Wallaby.
I’ve just recorded 5 tracks in the studio as well, it’s just been mastered, I can’t wait to launch that out into the world. It’s completely solo, just myself, guitar and harmonica, all recorded live, it’s come up really nice.
If you’re reading this, thank you. Feel free to ask me any questions at email@example.com
Wow! I had a great time up in Far North Queensland (FNQ) earlier this month! the support was overwhelming and greatly appreciated, we all need a bit of lovin’ and Anita and I definately felt the love from the folks up in Cairns, Cooktown, Port Douglas and Black Mountain, Thank You!
Next up is not so sunny Canberra in September. I’m sure it will be somewhat sunny I mean it’s nearly summer! it’s nearly Christmas! haha.. don’t mention Christmas, I still haven’t finished my to-do list. first on the agenda – write up a to-do list. I’m definately more of an idea’s man.
I have a dream to get the band back together again (the dirty shoes) more on that soon.

Just back into the swing of things after the mayhem of the Reclink Community Cup which was in Melbourne on the 21st of June and my team the Rockdogs were defeated by the Megahertz all in the name of good fun to raise money for Reclink a great cause. here are some photos me on the day
1st December 2014
Had a great time at Meredith, it was my first time and by the state I’m in this Monday, I made the most it with a big dancing efforts my head is sore from head banging and drinking all day in the sun.
The highlight was the war on drugs and when Courtney Barnett sung a duet with the lemonheads lead singer Evan dando. I was lucky enough to have a good friend who filmed me playing the turtle song on the farm with a nice a view and hot sun. Good times. Thanks Daniel Riley.

Hey… I got a call this morning from one of Black Mountain Music Festival organisers and looks like I’ll be returning up there for the next festival which is held north of Cairns in a beautiful spot on private property and with great people. I was there in 2013 and it was a blast. More details soon..
