Win lose draw! I’m humbled and grateful to be where I’m at – and please stay tuned for more music! 🙂

My very best regards,

BOOM!

Well thankfully I did have more luck than the mighty Swanies and I am very happy to report that I was lucky enough to bag four awards at the 2014 Southern Stars Australian Independent Country Music Awards night in Mildura.

The coveted Album of the Year, Male Vocal and Single of the Year as well as taking out the 2014  Independent Artist of the Year. Very humbled by the evening and it certainly makes the long hard yards worth it and deeply encourages me to keep on keeping on!

Sincere thanks to the judges and my peers for the honour and I will do my very best to uphold your faith in me!

Lots to do – with a tonne more fire in the belly!

Thanks once again Mildura!

Congrats to the thousands of passionate people who made this years Gympie Muster such a massive success!!

Big thanks to Benjy and Soni Pocock, Will Pascoe, Peter Gabrielides & Aleyce Simmonds for sharing their joy and musical talents and I’m really looking forward to playing at the Hallam Hotel this coming Thursday night the 4th of Sept, with Harmony James & Peter Denahy then the Lomond Hotel in East Brunswick with Pete & Damien Howard (Ploughboys fame).

Rollin’ rollin, rollin!

Then Mildura Country Music Festival in October which I happy to share I’ve picked up four nominations with the Southern Stars Independent Country Music Awards – and stoked to be up against some amazing and talented people that I’m proud to call friends and it will make it a fantastic evening regardless of outcomes!

The new single ‘Sing You Up’ is just about to get tout there and once again hopefully punch people in the nose with hoping to raise the awareness of the remarkable people putting their lives on hold fighting the insanity of Coal Seam Gas and Coal Mining expansion and invasion in Australia. More to come with this!!
