When one journey ends another begins
Welcome global travellers. I am an independent singer-songwriter from the North-coast NSW, Australia. Everything I do at the moment is handmade (so to speak) from producing records to designing my own websites, distribution and so on.. so please forgive me for any imperfections. I've been writing songs for over 20 years but feel like I have only just started. I draw a lot of inspiration from nature, emotional development and spirituality of all kinds. My first album A Horse Called Freedom is a journey about finding freedom within and the freedom drawn from connection to country. Has some influences from indigenous cultures. The song Burnished Gold had me nominated for song-writer of the year on the North Coast. I get inspired by nature and country. Despite winning a country song once (called Wild Lonesome Feeling) after watching the Johnny Cash movie I don’t actually listen to much country music and . Although it made me think of country music in its purest sense that is connecting to country and for me as a surfer it's where I feel it most. Recently I have journeyed to Ireland and visited the birthplace of my Grandfather. The country there and people had a big impact. The story of my grandfather has been told in the title song Celtic Heart off my second album. To me music is a vehicle for processing life and it's various journey's. Just back from a recent tour to China in 2017 is the origins of the latest journey called On My Mind from a project band called New Gold Mountain. Photo's and video's of the trip are uploaded on the special projects tab. The latest EP Headlights and Goodbyes came out out Dec 02 2018 and features a special collaboration with The Tea Party’s Jeff Martin on guitars. The story is here. I hope these expressions from the void bring something to you. New music on the way. Stay connected.
