Hi, thanks for visiting! I've just finished a tour of Cuba, where I was lucky enough to play in the Cubadisco International Arts Festival, as well as appear on national and international TV and radio. I recruited the help of local Cuban musicians for this project, and you can hear and see the results in the video above.

Meanwhile I’m hard at work on my next album, which includes songs I recorded on my last tour, which are now having the finishing touches put in them back in Melbourne. It will also include new songs I’m writing now, as I always find I’m most inspired while actually on the road making music!

Before that my last tours have also included Cuba, Brazil, Germany, Belgium, and Netherlands and of course Australia.

Subscribe to this project and get exclusive access to patron-only content - about the making of the EP, life on the road, and life as an artist - that you’ve always wanted to know!

Want to hear our interview on Belgian radio revealing the origins of ‘The Birdy Song’? Want to see our intimate set in an underground music store in the Netherlands? Want to hear about how me and the band ended up on a barge in a canal in Belgium having a blues jam with a world-class cinematographer? These things plus much more are waiting to be revealed.

As you may know, it takes a lot of time, energy, love and dedication to make a record. By subscribing, you help finish this album and make it the best it can be.

Thank you for believing in art. Just think - what would the world be like without music?

An early signed physical copy of the new CD with my band, sent anywhere to you in the world. We're in the process of creating this CD now - we're currently rehearsing and workshopping the songs before heading into the studio here in Bremen, Germany to start tracking on 23rd July. Your help in contributing to the costs of tracking and mixing would be most truly welcome. Add $3 for postage within Australia or $12 for overseas. We anticipate being able to deliver these to you in January 2020.

Goals
$14 of $500 per Song
I'm recording a new album with brand new songs, as well as some of the most-requested favourites. I start tracking with my band and studio engineer Bobbo Byrnes while on tour in Bremen, Germany.

I've now released the first single Travelling Salesman while finishing the tracking for the rest of the songs. This goal will enable me to progressively complete the rest of the songs on the album over the coming months with a target release month of November 2019.

After tracking and mixing, the next part of the journey will be mastering the album in October with mastering engineer Adam Dempsey.

Album artwork is being completed by my wife's brother in Brazil and will be complete in preparation for an Australian album launch in November.
