EUROPEAN TOUR WITH THE MAGNETIC FIELDS
I’m coming to Europe in two separate trips this year to support my old buddies The Magnetic Fields. I’m so happy to be reuniting with them. Years ago they were kind enough to take me all around the world with them and introduced me to many nice audiences. Some of these dates are in the very same places but others are completely new to me. Can’t wait. I’ll be playing a few of my own shows in some places too, news of that to come.

LIFE TAX OUT NOW!
Thanks so much for everyone who has bought this new album so far. I really appreciate it, and all the nice feedback people are sending through. Here’s a nice couple of reviews that’ve filtered through if you wanna read about it. First a write up on the Au Review:
And then a nice write up in the Australian, my first ever review in that publication:
So if you were teetering on picking up a copy and these taste-making reviews have now tipped you over the edge you can order a copy HERE
NEW SINGLE ‘The Spin’
My new single ‘the Spin’ will be out on February 18th…. if you’d like to pre-save it you can do so HERE. It’s the second song off the album Life Tax which comes out March 4th. And you can pre-save the whole shebang right HERE.
THE NEW ALBUM: LIFE TAX
My new album Life Tax is here! It’s my most pared down and gentle album to date I’d say. It was written and recorded in the Northcote Uniting Church Hall when I rented a room there in 2019.. and has taken two years to get it together so I can release it at a time that felt right.
This album will be released on the 4th March in shops but you can pre-order now. The benefits of this? Well there’s bundles that’ll only be available for the pre-order period. In these will be an exclusive t-shirt that I drew myself PLUS the latest edition of my zine ‘Cutting Remarks.’
All orders received by the 25th Feb will be posted out on that date so hopefully, Oz Post permitting, you’ll get it early. All pre-orders go in the running to win a special prize: an 8 track album of my songs chosen by one lucky winner, recorded acoustically and delivered to you in a one-off lathe cut LP pressing.
