MASSIVE thanks to my collegues and musical peers for their belief and faith in me and my music and I promise I won’t abuse that trust! As an independent artist – which constitutes about 98% of the music industry, we really have to push our own wagon BUT !!! – I sincerely must thank Stewie and Camille French for performing, engineering and helping me record and craft this album, David Sleishman on Drums & percussion, Mick Malouf on Bass, Clare O’Meara on eveyrthing that sounds really good (piano, fiddle, accordian and mandolin), Phil Doublet and Benjy Pocock for adding their guitar magic, Aleyce Simmonds for her angelic vocals, Cathy Moran for helping me score the string arrangements, Glen Hannah for his Jedi art skills, Andrew and Will at WJO Distribution for helping me get it out there, Denise Torenbeek for helping me get out there and to the beautiful family of proud Australian country music DJ’s who get my stories and songs and share me with you!
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,
