Friends, both old and new!

Thank you all so much for the kind and generous attention given to Alexandra, I’m so proud of the album and delighted that it’s resonating with lots of people in this mess of a year.

I’m pretty excited to announce that there’ll be a launch event for the album as well. Whilst I am sad that the previously scheduled launches at Melbourne Recital Centre and Redland Performing Arts Centre were both understandably covid-cancelled, what’s happening instead is pretty amazing.

I’ll be belatedly launching Alexandra at the beautiful The Tivoli theatre in Brisbane on Wednesday 16 September, as part of Brisbane Festival. It’ll be a particularly special show as it is also a belated album release show for Brisbane comrade Cloud Tangle, launching her debut album Kinds Of Sadness. We’re both preparing some special audio and visual treats for our respective sets at this beautiful theatre,

Tickets are on sale 3 August, I’d love to see you there if you can make it. For those of you who live further away than down the road from my house, I’ll hopefully be able to visit as soon as things allow.

I’m absolutely delighted today, as Alexandra is now out everywhere! I’m so proud of this album and so elated to finally be able to share it with you all.

I’ll post a bit more about the album, the story, who played on it, and so on in a while, but for now I’m just so pleased that it is out! Hooray!

So the world really does change in a month! I hope you’re all dealing with the uncertainty of COVID-19 as best you can.

On a very personal level, it has been lovely to talk to people about Sun At 5 In 4161, the first ‘single’ from my fourth album, Alexandra (out via Someone Good/Room40 on May 15). Kind words have been very much appreciated.

I’m excited to now share the second song from the album. Hilliard Creek, Finucane Road is out today, Friday 17 April. Hilliard Creek… features some absolutely beautiful pedal steel guitar from Chuck Johnson and I’m delighted that people finally get to listen to it.

Many thanks to Musicology for premiering the video and also for interviewing me – I really enjoyed the chat!
