Hi everyone, I'm excited to announce that I'll be doing some solo shows with my new friend Rebecca Barnard! It's been a while since I've played as a solo artist. I have a lot of new songs from my upcoming album, plus some old favourites that haven't seen the light of day for ages! Rebecca and I will support each other and play a set together at the end. Event details here.
Here is an exerpt from the premiere of Seven Stories, City Recital Hall, Sydney June 2017. Performed by Ensemble Offspring with visuals by Sarah-Jane Woulahan. This is the piece I composed for my theme, Overcoming the Darkness. I based it loosely on the Neil Gaiman story of Coraline. You know, the old jealous witch who preys on the soul of the young, innocent, beautiful daughter. There are many psychological layers to this story. In a nutshell though, it is about courage....which leads to transformation,
I was honoured to be invited to sing the beautiful Go-Betweens song Clouds, with my fellow Cloud Trish Young last week at the State Theatre in Sydney. We joined Amanda Brown, Lindy Morrison, John Willsteed and a stellar line up of some of Australia's best musos and most dynamic singers, including Steve Kilbey, Kirin J Callinan, Izzi Manfredi and Dave Mason. There was laughter, there were tears, anecdotes, and some truly heartbreaking renditions of some of Grant and Robert's most iconic songs. This photo was taken by Pru Upton.
Here is a little preview of Seven Stories, which premiered at City Recital hall earlier this year. It was an incredible journey to create the music and the show with all of these talented, amazing people!
