Six is Enough

I’ve been spending the last couple of months touring with my friend and Australian music icon Jon English as part of his show “Six is Enough” and this weekend we are bringing the show to my hometown of Newcastle. Excited to be able to share this little musical feast with my nearest and dearest.

The show features a bunch of Jon’s most well known works as well as a tip-of-the-hat to his ventures into musical theatre and music that has inspired him along the way. It also involves the six of us galavanting about the stage swapping instruments and stories and generally having a laugh.

If you’ve been living under a rock for the last 40 years, or you were only born this century, and need some familiarising, check out Jon’s recent interview on The Daily Edition below.

National TV appearance

I was excited to share a brief chat and a bit of a song this morning on the new Channel 10 program, Studio 10. The appearance was arranged after my article published in Crikey last week sparked some interest in links between music and wellbeing. The chat is very brief, but you get the idea. You can watch it here:



Music and mental health


Honoured to be featured in prominent public health blog Croakey today. My piece outlines the growing evidence for what we have intuitively known for centuries to be beneficial links between music, mental health and social connectedness. Check it out here:

Melbourne wrap-up + upcoming house concerts

Melbourne Album Launch

Melbourne Album Launch

Just finished an amazing weekend launching my album in Melbourne with my fantastic band. Thanks to The Spotted Mallard and The Lomond for hosting a couple of very special shows and to all those who came along and supported us.

No time for rest though as I’m about to embark on my first ever house concert tour! In a couple of weeks I’ll be hitting the road to play house shows in Lismore, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Newcastle, Gloucester and Bathurst, which a few other little public gigs in between. Keep an eye on my SHOWS page or on Facebook for announcements.

Can’t wait to meet all the lovely people who have opened up their homes to experience my music in an intimate setting. We are already considering plans for further house concerts into early next year. If this is something you’d be interested in, get in touch with us at
