So I am currently out on the road with Emmylou Harris and her Red Dirt Boys having an incredible time playing around Australia with some of the finest musicians in the world. It is a huge honour for me and I am in awe that I have been asked along for such an amazing string of shows. To celebrate the tour I have uploaded a new video to YouTube of one of my favourite Emmylou songs ‘Timberline’ that she wrote with Paul Kennerley. Hope you like it!

LET YOUR LIGHT clip now live
2:03 pm, February 9, 2012
SO this week has been a bit of a sad one at work and it also marks exactly five years since my experience with Starlight began. Seems fitting that I post the video for the song ‘Let Your Light’.
The clip is a live recording from the gig at The Thornbury Theatre in Melbourne last December and the song was in many ways the beginning of my music career as it is today. You can read more about that here.
In other news I guess I should give you a bit of an update about the year…which I will do. But not right now. Right now I’m going to go think about how much I love my job and how lucky I have been to do it for five years and counting.
End Of Year Show Announced
1:13 pm, November 9, 2011
December 18! Put it in your diary and get ready for the show to end all shows. Well at least for this year.
It’s been an insane 12 months and to cap it all off we’re taking over the Thornbury Theatre for a night of celebrations, new songs, Christmas covers and special guests.
As always Annie Davidson has done a stellar poster for the night (pictured) and I’m particularly excited for this gig because my good friend John Flanagan is opening the night with his band The Begin Agains. Believe it or not, after all these years, this is the first time John has ever opened a headlining gig for me.
For more details check out the GIGS section of the website and I hope to see you there!

Check you out. You made it to the party and it’s only just starting. This is a great day for both of us.
Firstly welcome to my very own website. It’s mostly fully furnished though we’re still finding a place for everything. Feel free to peruse the various pages you find and please notify us of any spelling errors.
All the usual things are here, photos, videos, links – blah blah blah you’ll figure it out.
You’ll notice below us is a ‘song-o-graphy’ section. This is the place where you can read the story behind some of my songs. Keep checking back cos the plan is obviously to keep adding as we go.
Something else you should know about me (while we’re getting to know each other) is that I have a minor obsession with linking random videos into bits of text. Like the one I just did then. Feel free to find those and love them as I love them.
So yeah. There’s of course plenty of other news, but for now, WELCOME TO MY HOME.
PS. WANNA SEE HOW WE MADE THE WEBSITE?
