I will be a guest performer at the NSW Mental Health Commission’s community event: No Offence - a night of comedy and conversation about language and mental health.
“Hosted by the hilarious Nelly Thomas and featuring Olympic gold medallist Matthew Mitcham, No Offence… promises to entertain, inspire and challenge with surprising and candid accounts of the power of everyday language in mental health and stigma.
Lynne Malcolm, host of ABC RN All in the Mind, will host a panel of luminaries from media and the arts featuring Chris Taylor (The Chaser), Bjorn Stewart (Black Comedy) and NSW Deputy Mental Health Commissioner Fay Jackson discussing the portrayal of mental illness.
Also appearing are acclaimed songstress Amy Vee and comedians from the 2014 WISE Stand Up for Mental Health comedy gala.”

Acclaimed Newcastle indie songstress Amy Vee will hit the stage on Sunday 10 May at The Small Ballroom in Islington for the first full band show in over a year.
It’s been a while between band shows for the award-winning songbird, and for good reason. Among touring the country as a multi-instrumentalist with Aussie music legend Jon English, performing solo openers for the likes of Toni Childs, Abby Dobson and The Audreys, the singer has also become a mother for the first time.
The band features a full line-up including Ben Webb on guitars and melodica, Matt Spier on drums, Klaye Sanders on bass, Natasha Rusterholz-Schaad on keys and Rachel Pogson on cello.
The band’s set will include a selection of songs from her crowd-funded album “Fits and Starts” as well as other well-travelled favourites.
The night will also be the final live show for fellow Newcastle band Ben and the Sea, who will be farewelling their songwriter and frontman before his indefinite move to the USA, and Sydney-based singer-songwriter Emma Beau, fresh off her tour with Kasey Chambers.
The over 18s show will be at The Small Ballroom, Maitland Road, Islington on Sunday 10 May. Doors at 6:30pm.
Thrilled to announce that I’ll be joining the rhythm section for the fabulous Emma Beau at her #Brisbane EP Launch! Thurs 12 March, The Bearded Lady, West End. I’ll also be warming up the crowd with a few of my own tunes. Can’t wait.
