Hello dear supporters,
Greetings from New Plymouth! It has been such a busy month but I am grateful for all the opportunities to play music here & all the support I have received from the lovely people of New Plymouth. Thanks to everyone who has come out to hear me perform and to those of you who have bought the EP, a huge thanks!!
Gigs in New Plymouth & Wellington
On September 21st I played an opening set for Greg Copeland at The Billiard Room aka Pete Bennett's home. It was an awesome night and Pete adds those lovely touches to make it a welcoming and enjoyable night for everyone! I loved listening to the blues of Steve Gillies & Greg Copeland and was inspired by their musicality on stage...
On Sept 30th I played at Cafe Baobab in Wellington. A beautiful small venue with friendly staff & amazing food. If you are in Wellington try to check it out!
Heading back to Australia in late October
After a great EP Launch in August in quaint little Milthorpe (NSW), I'll be heading back over to Sydney in late October to perform some gigs. The first will be the Humph Hall in Allambie Heights, very close to where I grew up. The venue is purely acoustic and no p.a system is used, so it should be a novel experience.
Then I will head up to Bathurst, NSW where I will perform at the Inland Sea of Sound Festival with bass player Christian Prusiak & percussionist/drummer Mark Welch. Busy times, but very exciting to be playing at this great festival, with the headliner being the amazing Kate Miller-Heike, opera singer turned pop icon!
Radio play update
I've been lucky enough to have my music featured this month on Aussie Music Weekly, an Australian music programme that is broadcast to 45 community radio stations across Australia. Thanks Noddy for your support!
If you are around New Plymouth this Friday 7th Oct pop into the Art Auction Fundraiser at the Novotel. Money raised from sold art will benefit the Taranaki Women's Refuge, a great cause. I will be sharing the stage with the incredibly talented Juliet McLean from 5.30pm. Many amazing artists will be showcasing their work. Tickets are $10.
Thanks again to everyone for your support. Wishing you a great few months ahead as we move closer to the end of 2016!! Remember you can stay in touch via these social channels.
