It’s been a quiet, cold winter out there. In my world however quiet ... and not so quiet. I’ve been piecing together the songs that will become the next solo album. In fact recording has only just begun with maestro, Shane O’Mara at the helm.
Here’s the majestic drum kit sans drummer, I never did get a good shot of tub thumper Ben Wiesner. Thanks Ben.
Shows are springing up across the country, which gives me the opportunity to play these new tunes, read from the B O O K and revisit the familiar.
Also Acoustic House Concerts are back on!!!! Since I haven’t booked my flights quite yet, have a look to see if there’s a date that suits your town either side of my shows (below) and we’ll take it from there.
I’m playing a show at the stunning new side bar of The Caravan Music Club with Shane O’Mara in about a month's time. Saturday August 25 in fact. It’s small, intimate, 50 person capacity known as The Winnebago Lounge ~ would be good to see you there and get a sense of how the new tunes are settling into the set. TICKETS
The Melbourne Writers Festival 2018 has invited me to chat with Romy Vager (RVG) in a series at ACMI. We’ll be there Sunday September 2 at 2:30pm.
DUETS ~ in conversation with Romy. TICKETS
There’s also a big show with some Go-Betweens in Melbourne ~ performing the songs from 16 Lovers Lane at The Arts Centre with some stellar guests ~ Paul Kelly, Jen Cloher, Romy Vager, Dave Graney, Alex Gow, Laura Jean, Clare Moore, and ... me. TICKETS
