I've had a chance to play some great shows this year so far. The Boolarra Folk Festival, The Harcourt Apple Festival along with a couple of great live to air performances on radio, but mostly I have been excited about the people I have met and traded stories with. The House Concerts and small venues where we can talk and laugh with each other have been the highlights for me.
All these years I have had an idea of success in my mind. But this clear and creative time has allowed me to stop and look around me. It has given me a chance to recognise the ways in which I am already accomplished and well satisfied and that I am actually doing all of the things that only 5 or so years ago, I was hoping for and daydreaming about.
Thanks to all who have been part of my year so far. There's loads more stuff to come.
Yes, I have been circulating the new EP around the place. Community stations such as 3MDR, Southern FM and other various stations around the state have kindly given it a spin. I've also been selling them at Festivals and gigs so far. However, the official launch date of the digital release is set for April 22, after which it will available worldwide.
Thanks so much for being patient with me. In the meantime, if you're after a CD copy and just cannot wait, being on the mailing list means you can just email me and I'll send you one.
You can read some reviews of the new stuff here.
Take care out there and I hope we see each other at a show in the near future.
