Slag Fest 2014

My buddy Steph Hughes and I uncharacteristically followed through on a drunken idea we had. And so Slag Fest is born! Come along on a road trip to Broken Hill…

ALBUM PREVIEW SHOWS

I’ve had a few messages lately asking after the progress of this new album. It’s coming along nicely and now I’m just being fussy with the final touches. It’s been a long journey and I wanna get everything right. At this stage the working title is “Where Did You Come From?”

So I’d planned to launch it early March as a couple of the musicians who played on it will be here in Australia anyway and thought it would time nicely. When I realised I’d missed the deadline I thought it would be a shame not to do something anyway.  So I’ve put together a week of preview shows in interesting spaces to at least showcase some of the songs I’ve recorded.  These are also very intimate venues so tickets are limited – about 100 each show – so please get in early if you want to secure a spot.

Each show will also feature an multi-media performance by Portland’s Adam Selzer as he reads, sings and projects images from his new book ‘Ami, Go Home.’

CHRISTMAS SHOW UPDATE

Thanks Melbourne for selling so quick, we’ve had some emails asking for another show but unfortunately we have no days left. Have also had mail from Brisbane folk lamenting the fact the show up there is 18+… really sorry about that as I know families often like to come along. I promise I’ll find an all ages venue for the album launch tour next year.

Have added more room to the Sydney church show and as of today there are 20 tix left.

Ta,

Welcome to the New Website

For the past few years my poor old trusty website has been falling apart bit by bit and no one seemed to know how to fix it.  I hereby launch a brand new one with a title page by artist Wendy Heldmann.  Thanks for visiting, hope to see you back again.
