Heading north to Sydney this Friday with maestro guitarist producer Shane O’Mara to play at Camelot in Marrickville ~ comfy and lounge~like. Even more special is the wonderful Amanda Brown [film track composer, violinist, singer, Go-Between] will join us for a few tunes. Exciting as I’ve never had the opportunity for Amanda to perform one of my own songs before... given how long we’ve known one another. In fact we first met in Sydney when Chad’s Tree were recording our debut album Buckle In The Rail ~ 33 years ago! Yes, really ~ 1986.
Fast forward >>>>> I was lucky enough to be asked to sing and play harmonica with The Go-Betweens | 16 Lovers Lane shows in Sydney and Melbourne last year so I’m looking forward to this long awaited musical moment ~ thank you Amanda.
Also thanks to the good folk of Melbourne who came along to the launch of Sparrow & Swan [north-side] on Saturday night at The Spotted Mallard. The band and I were touched by your warmth and spirit, twas a special night for us.
Heading to Canberra soon too, tell your pals in the ACT if you could. In fact the cover shot of the album was taken by Brandon Jarrett in the very venue we’re playing ~ Smith’s Alternative ~ 🎫 tickets here ~
See you soon Sydney.
