Thanks for clicking through! I figured this format might work best this month as I have plenty to say and the email was getting a bit long.
I can’t quite believe it was only three months ago that we returned from our USA adventure. We’re now bunkered down in Mike’s studio in the Adelaide Hills mixing the album we recorded in Montana. We’ve got Tim Brierly on board now, which is an exciting development. Tim was involved in the recording of ‘Sketches’ in 2015, and also created my new website (where you can find a short update on the album’s progress). Tim is a wonderful addition to the team, in skills as well as character.
A new development for me this month is that I’ve begun working in the co-working space at St Paul’s Creative Centre. It’s a beautiful space and I’m loving it so far. Last week I got to jump into ‘The Sauna’ co-working studio to record some vocals for Tim Whitt‘s new album. He’s had musicians streaming in and out of that room for three weeks contributing to the work, including members of ‘The Beards’. I can’t wait to hear the final product!
I had a wonderful night at The Cheese Factory Studio Gallery at the end of last month, playing for their annual ‘A Big Slice Of Cheese’. It was a mini festival in Meadows, featuring live music and DJs, a drumming circle and some incredible virtual reality experiences. The beautiful folks at The Cheese Factory put on a show one Sunday a month featuring a musician or band. If you’re in Adelaide, I can highly recommend these shows, and the venue has a wonderful vibe. Check it out here.
*Please note the monthly shows at Spot & Co (outlined in the mail-out) will no longer be running.
Two more shows in mid June: Friday 16th at Stone Pony (Willunga) with The Baker Suite, and Sunday 18th at The Wheatsheaf Hotel, supporting Jen Lush for ‘The Night’s Insomnia’ album launch. More info for all gigs on my website.
Warm hearts to you all and thanks for staying engaged. I love hearing from you so if you feel inspired, hit reply or jump on social media. My question for this edition:what are some of your favourite things to do when the cooler weather sets in? Soup and board games? Long walks in long coats? Let me know!
Thanks for reading!
