Storyboarding

The ‘In The Clouds EP’ is being pressed as we speak. I’m flippin’ excited! All the beautiful people who donated to my Indiegogo campaign will receive their copy first and everyone will have to wait til it is released in October. In the meantime Boat, the first single is available to download at iTunes and Cdbaby. Boat has reached number one on the Pop Chart on Triplejunearthed so thank you everyone who rated and commented.

Pre-production for a music video for Boat has begun!! I’ve been busy scouting locations, moved a lovely but heavy  pianola (I didn’t move it. Matt, Lakey & Jakey did) and have a great cinematographer and director on board. Film days are set for the beginning September and fingers crossed it warms up. I’ve been developing the storyboard with my beautiful friend Gianna, and it’s so much fun. Takes me back to London and making the other videos with Greg.

I’m getting heavily into yoga. It seems like the perfect exercise for me and I’m definitely reaping the physical and mental benefits. After a few weeks of terrible headaches, I had another scan and it appears I still have severe sinusitis – WHY DID I HAVE THE SURGERY??? – Breaks my balls off. My doc told me I could be allergic to the cold. That seems about right. So with this depressing news I leave you with a few lovely quotes. “Just because you’re in pain, doesn’t mean you have to be a pain.” And below..

Spring Has Sprung

I’d not been to FBi Social before Jordan Millar asked me to support him for his single launch. It’s now my favourite Sydney venue. Thanks to those who came out last night, bought CDs and listened to us play. It was a pleasure to play my music for you.

So I go under the knife in a few weeks and they are cleaning out and reforming the sinus tunnels in my forehead, cheeks and at my request, any other orifice in my head that may be constructed causing my headaches.

So The Boatshed gig with the band next week will be my last show for a little while so please come join us!

Wed. Nov 7 – 8:30pm – free
Old Manly Boashed
The Corso, Manly, Sydney

The Four Pines and The Empire gigs will hopefully be moved to Dec/Jan so stay tuned. Apologies for anyone who was planning to come.

I saw Aussie band, The Rubens and Aussie songstress, Lisa Mitchell last week and have to mention how impressed I was with the latter. I saw Lisa Mitchell play years ago and she has come forward in leaps and bounds. She was confident, engaging and cute.

I also have to note that The Rubens need a style overhaul. The private school boy look just didn’t do it for me, but they sounded great – as does their new record.

Hopefully see you Wednesday!
