The mighty Gympie Muster was as good as it gets this with packed shows and beautiful weather plus 5 star accommodation in my mate Razor’s boutique bus. Big congrats to all involved in making it such a huge success!
Very much looking forward to the Mildura Independent Country Music Festival kicking off in October and somehow I’ve been lucky enough to find myself a finalist in four separate categories at the Southern Stars Independent Country Music Awards, with ‘The Drover’s Wife’ nominated for ‘Song of the Year, Album of the Year, Heritage Track & Male Artist. Very humbling and I am sincerely stoked to be there! It’s a great Festival and looking forward to catching up with some ratbag mates!
Also found out that I’d won an honourable mention in the International Unsigned Only Songwriting competition and out of 7500 entries from over 80 countries my song ‘How Well Have You Loved?’ stuck out in the folk singer songwriter category. See the very nice button they sent me below! J
Mud Bulls & Music Festival in November and cant wait for that one. It’s a FANTASTIC festival set out in the stunning Landcruiser Park near Jimna QLD and I’ll be teaming up with the very clever and BEAUTIFUL Benjy and Soni Pocock of The Vibe once again and also catching up with even more ratbag mates.
Am happy to report a new live room in Sydney, the Colonial Hotel in Werrington, is locking in some great country music acts on Friday nights and I will be out there 7th of Sept and 9th of Nov. Canterbury Country is also having it’s Hank Williams spectacular spectacular Thursday Sept 13 and myself and the boys of Medicine Wheel will be doing a show out at Petersham Bowling Club on Sunday the 14th of October.
Songwriters in the Round is spreading it’s wings and starting up a series of shows at Rooty Hill RSL starting on Thursday October 18th, with an amazing array of exceptional singer songwriters talking about their craft and inspiration behind their songs before playing them in the same raw intimate way they were written. Makes for a fascinating evening of inspiring music.
Later in November I am teaming up with the super talented and very good mate Amber Lawrence with a run of shows in Canberra, Albury and on Saturday the 24th of November ‘Lizottes’ in Dee Why, if keen on the later, get in and book early for Lizzottes for it is a beautiful but small room and it will fill up fast!
Lots more stuff scattered all over the place, like a very worth while charity bash down in the MIGHTY Tarago on the 27th of October and in closing, I’d just like to say …Go the mighty Sharkies !!! For even making the finals for the first time in soooooo long!
Stay gold and my very best regards,
