It’s finally starting to feel like my music project isn’t a hopeless task.
We are putting on shows in towns that I have never played before and people are coming out and buying tickets.
It’s a crazy thing to rock up to a venue in a town I have never played, load in the gear with all the overhead costs looming and wondering if anyone is going to turn up. I’ll tell you, they turned up and it’s the best feeling in the world.

Playing songs that I wrote a couple of years ago, in a situation and a mind set that I never imagined would come to fruition like they have, and having people singing those songs back to me onstage is one of the coolest things ever.
Thank you to everyone who has been coming out to the shows, singing the songs and buying the merch. This tour has been one of the greatest things I have been a part of to date and I can’t wait for the rest of it to be just as fun.
At the end of July we played at the Groundwater Country Music Festival which was a standout for the band and I.
The organisation and running of the festival was second to none and we had an unreal time and played some great shows. Can’t wait to get back there next year – hopefully!
In August, we played at Country Rocks Under The Stars in Braidwood which was awesome fun, the we played early morning at the Central Coast festival, before heading to Bellingen, then to the Gympie Muster, then Brisbane, and the Sydney album launch, before heading on to Wagga and then up to the Northern Territory.
I have just watched the first cut of my new single Water On The Ground and I’m totally blowing my own horn here, but the clip is unbelievable.
It’s something that my little team and I worked so hard on to capture and I can’t wait for everyone to see it.
Other than that, we are just grinding away at this tour, sharing music and beers and having a rip-snorter of a time.
I have already started working on album number two which keeps the motivation high. Writing flat out and keen to get back into the studio later in the year is exciting.
Hope to see you on the road at a show soon.
