What a fun Europe tour to end a really enjoyable year! Thanks heaps to everyone who came along early to shows, it was lovely playing to nice rooms and attentive audiences. Great to make some new friends in lots of different cities! Also a massive thanks to Ryley Walker and his band (Andrew Scott Young, Brian Sulpizio, Frank Rosaly, Quin Kirchner), tour manager and management de force Peter Symes and Ben Wileman, Nikita Lavrinenko and Erin Coleman for all of the booking support and to all the local and national promoters for their home city knowledge and insight.
After finishing up for the year for my own performances, it was a thrill to finish up the year proper by sitting in on a song during Matmos’ set at Unsound Adelaide last week. What an enjoyable time!
One thing I didn’t do much this year was to play in Brisbane much. I felt like a good break was needed but I’m very much looking forward to bringing in the new year with a hometown show at The Junk Bar. Room40 and I are bringing amazing pedal steel guitarist Chuck Johnson to Brisbane, which will be a great show. Presale tickets available now.
Okay thanks again, time for a little year end break and see you in 2019!
