I've got so much news that I am almost tempted to not mention any of it so to not detract from any one thing by saying it all at once.
While I know that last sentence only made sense in my mind, I'll attempt to relay some of the wonderful things that are happening around the campfires here.
Firstly, thank you to all who shared their positive comments and celebrations on the release of my most recent video 'We Ain't All Equal'. The success of this project could not have been accomplished without Joshua Collings at PEGLEGProductions. Also, my fantastic teammates at MEJU Music with whom I have been working on the upcoming release, which is 98.5% complete and should be out in the coming months.
I was so fortunate to be invited to perform on the wonderful Gippsland TV Program Live@Spectrum alongside local legends 'The Strzelecki Stringbusters'. What an amazing experience it was for me. And I hear that the program is being picked up by Foxtel's 'Aurora' soon. We're goin' national baby!!!
In the meantime though, I will be joining the wonderful Megan Bernard on two very special shows to celebrate the release of her new work 'Follow it Through'. Meg incorporates Funk/Jazz/Folk/Rock into a fusion of lush sonic soundscapes. She is a rare breed of trained and intuitive musician who is equally at home across multiple styles and creative approaches. I know you guys will absolutely love her music as I do. We will begin the adventures at the beautiful and intimate 'Skylark Room' in Upwey, followed up by an afternoon performance atBar 303 in Northcote the following weekend. We would love for you to join us for these very special events, which will mark the beginning of an exciting new musical partnership.
As though that wasn't enough to keep me smiling for a year, all of this will take place in the weeks leading up to my departure for Europe in September/October to explore the wonders of Italia and the Mediterranean. Wish me luck on my first European adventure. I'll keep you updated with more soon.'Vi voglio molto bene, e non potrei fare niente di questo senza di voi'.
