Making a Record during a Pandemic.
It’s been a big year, and I wanted to give you all a quick update on how I went in 2020 and my progress working on my new record, Crossing the Sea in the middle of a pandemic.
When Covid shut down Australia in March, like the majority of the country, I was scared for the future. Not only what that meant for work on my new record, but how I was going to be able to survive with absolutely no income. It was a strange feeling. However, in the midst of all that uncertainty, I decided to trust it would be ok and push forward on the task ahead, releasing the new music that I spent all of 2019 making! I had CLIMB & LITTLE BLUEBIRD ready to go and was not going to let these uncertain times, stop me from sharing something good & beautiful with the world. Ironically the timing of it all, felt perfect.
As well as releasing both singles and having the success of airplay on Triple J, Double J, Triple M Townsville & Newcastle, ABC Radio, 2RRR Sydney and many many more great stations, I managed to get some major studio time in, just before Melbourne went into lock down. Dorian & I worked on 3 more tracks in that time and decided on the next & final single to be released before the full album comes out. The track is called Passenger and is so very appropriate for the times. It’s about getting back into the drivers seat of your life and being awake to things that need to change in order for our survival as a planet. I look forward to sharing it with you in 2021!

So I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to you all and I thank you for being part of making my dream a reality!
