Tell us about your latest single/album/tour.
I am releasing a single in November called ‘Places You Love’ which is the first drop from my LP ‘As Memories Pass Each Other ‘ due in Feb 2020. It’s jangle pop, bit of country with lush harmonies. Lyrically it tells the story of unrequited love but also the sadness of remembering certain places in time. Strangely upbeat though!
How would you describe your sound in food form and why?
Crunchy at times like iceberg lettuce, layers of harmonies like a well made salad sandwich and melodious like a perfectly ripe mango.
Tell us a quick, on the road or studio, anecdote.
Once I had to play the worlds largest sausage sizzle????? in Hobart. I was in the Hummingbirds and the record company roped Simon and I into a stripped back set. To this day it haunts me.
What, or who, inspires you?
Nature and lately my Entropy Band who willingly play the songs I’ve written and are very generous with their talent.
Which song do you wish you wrote? Why?
Here Comes the Sun- George Harrison
It is just full of elation.
What does Australian Music Week mean to you?
It is the first time I have been involved so I am looking forward to networking and hearing some beautiful music.
When / where will you be performing?
Nov 8 at JD’s Bar and Bistro Cronulla
What’s your scene?
I like extremes.
