What a stellar month.
Thank you friends for voting for me in the prestigious AGE Music Victoria Awards... an honour and such a brilliant surprise. Let's not get carried away though, have you all seen who's on this list... Vance Joy, Chet Faker, Dan Sultan, Mikelangelo and yours truly. Fine company to be amongst.
Nice to visit Sydney again last month and to play Camelot in Marrickville with JP for the first time. A fine night was had. I barely recognised my old neighbourhood, there seems to be venues popping up everywhere.
Other highlights included supporting Canadian alt country songstress Lindi Ortega with "Champagne" James Robertson, two shows with Toni Childs and a couple of lovely, intimate acoustic house concerts (yes, I'm still doing them, just email firstname.lastname@example.org if there's something you have in mind).
So I'm wondering how Major Tom's will be this Saturday (Nov 8) as I head up to Kyneton for a solo gig out in the country... it's just past Woodend. The folk there tell me tickets are limited and if you were thinking of going to get in quick. tel: 03 5422 6395 ... might see you there.
ps. Saw a brilliant live show from those lads from Manchester ELBOW at The Forum last week. Yes it's true, that chap Guy Garvey can really sing.
