Everything In Excess

Two pre- ep shows have been booked and deets are as follows. YAY!

SYDNEY
Wed. Feb 27 – 8:30pm
Old Manly Boatshed
The Corso, Manly

BRISBANE
Wed. March 20 – 8pm
The Round at Dowse Bar
155-157 Given Terrace, Paddington

It’s my first QLD show so I’m pretty excited. While I’m in Brisbane I’ll be catching up with some friends, meeting Yanto Browning, the producer, and checking out the studio where I’ll be recording vocals in April.

I’ve been working with another producer called LDRU, writing some dance tracks and it’s pretty fricken fun. Might have something mixed in the next few weeks so standby.

Valentine’s Day is a little bit of a wank, but Jakey and I cooked three tapas each and had a really nice night. We made broccolini with balsamic vinegar and parmesan cheese, ceasar/hybrid salad, San chow bow, minute steak with mushroom sauce and dessert extravaganza- cookies and cream ice cream, sprinkled twirl, meringue, strawberries, a real cookie and then garnished with ice magic. I have a slight sweet tooth.

Went to Laneway Festival the other week. It was so much fun! Alt-j, Jessie Ware, Of Monsters and Men and Divine Fits were my faves. Great, chilled festival.. Sound was a bit quiet at times though. In their defence the weather was shocking, so the wind might’ve been blowing the tunes towards Parramatta instead of my head.

While I’m on the topic of loud music- the inventors have invented a cure for tinnitus- hearing damage cause from loud music – and I am so stoked. Well done, incredible news for our generation.

My friend Jordan Millar released his album today and it is wonderful. Please head to his launch tonight at The Beresford in Sydney or buy/ Spotify his music.

While I’m on that topic, if you haven’t got Spotify yet, you crazy! If you haven’t heard James Blake’s new single, Retrograde, you crazy.

Bye for now,

A Blog On The Bus

Jar Of Hearts is a song that touched loads of people- especially my sister. We’ve all got those special songs that we play when we’re down, or before we leave the tarmac and embark on an adventure. When a lovely friend offered us free tix to see Christina Perri at The Enmore, I jumped at it. Lloyd and my sis came along and we had a grand ol time.

Jar Of Hearts by Christina Perri

Jordan Millar supported and was great (he always is). He’s playing at Cafe Lounge in Surry Hills, Sydney if anyone’s interested. Anywho, Christina Perri was awesome and I loved her manner on stage. She had the cutest fans too.

Went to a Vivid Live talk called Unleashing The Imagination.. It was pretty cool. Here’s some pics I took after on instagram.

Meanwhile, Darren’s going great guns on the voice. His last performance was off tha heezey. Please vote for him or buy one of his songs off iTunes, which I’ve had on repeat just quietly. He produced my ep Just The Wind and is a lovely soul and so bloody talented and hard working. He deserves it. And he’s the best.

I have booked another gig in London at The Regal Room on July 28! Come along, or if you can’t, never fear – download the app or watch on the Justin Tv Website wherever you are. Pretty cooooool.

Till next time,
