HOPING 2017 HAS STARTED WELL
I Hope the year has started well, and your new years resolutions are coming into fruition. We still have 10 months to go, so no rush if you haven't yet. lol
Firstly I had a wonderful time at the Tamworth Festival. The highlight was the “Songs and the life of Show” I got to do with Sandra Humphries and Dave Prior. Sandra was awesome as always performing the songs of Tammy Wynette and telling everyone story's of Tammy's life. Sandra really has the best country voice in Australia. I’d like to personally thank Sandra for allowing my daughter Paige to get up and perform harmonies for her. I may be biased, however Paige sang beautifully.
Dave of course performed the tunes from the legendary Merle Haggard. Dave is a master of Merle and it was wonderful to play along side him.
Myself, I got to play my favourite idol of traditional country music, Buck Owens. It was a whole heap of fun.
The band was , Henry on guitar, Anthony Stewart on bass, Simon Wegner on drums and Lance Birrel on Pedal Steel. These guys did an fantastic job learning the tunes and playing them as traditional to the record. It sounded awesome.
Look out for this show in the future, this year.
I’m very excited to say,that I’m working on a brand NEW Album due mid may. I have 12 new self penned songs which I’m very excited about. I will say this album will be very traditional country, as that is my favourite style of country. I will also throw a couple of covers on there. SO WATCH THIS SPACE!
Recording an album means I need to get out on the Road again and do some touring. So as you may see I have lots of shows already locked in. Ill be travelling to every state this year doing gigs. Its going to be a whole lot of fun.
First big show is the Music in the Mulga in Eulo South West Queensland. I got to play this festival last year and it was a whole bunch of fun. Check out the website http://musicinthemulga.com.au/mulga/
Well I hope this finds you well. Please don't hesitate to contact me for gigs or songwriting or just a chat. All my details are on the contacts page of my website.
Until next time
Keep safe on the trrack
