Happy new year!

Quick one from me – here’s some cheeky news on my next album Fleeting Adventure in Uncut Magazine. Rob Hughes asked me some great questions, allowing me to delve into some of the themes, ideas and collaborating musicians. Proper announcements re: release dates etc pending, but it’ll be on LP/CD/digital via two wonderful labels – Mistletone (AUS/NZ) and Basin Rock (EU/UK/ROW). I’ll definitely do a post of love / gratitude / thanks for infinite patience for these two excellent labels and also Room40 and BSR who I’ve joyously worked in the past; but for now check out the Mistletone and Basin Rock back catalogues!

As I’ve mentioned on the socials and on my Patreon, I’m currently figuring out new ways how to perform live in 2022 and beyond. I bought a new computer a few months back and the program I’ve used live for years isn’t supported on it (which I knew about/had mentally prepared myself for) so it’s been time to learn new things! I’d been preparing myself for this for a while, but it’s still exciting/daunting. Early days still but I’ve at least set things up enough to mess around with some music! The audio soundtrack to this post is one of my first improvisations with my new live setup.

Speaking of shows, will be able to share more soon but Omicron pending I’ll be playing in Melbourne on 11th March and Gold Coast on 12th March (pencil in 6th August for a very special/long rescheduled Melbourne show, too!). I’ve also picked up a EU/UK booking agent so depending on interest/covid/travel/etc I’ll hopefully make it back to the other side of the world at some point. 

As I’d mentioned, here’s an improvisation I recorded the other day – looking forward to further tweaks and then performing as COVID-19 allows!

If you’re interested in things like this, I’ve been making regular posts on my Patreon with new audio / video / etc!

Thank you!

Hello!

So I haven’t released a ‘mixtape’ of my own music for a few years now (last one was a soft synth/sleep sound one in 2017). I’d been thinking about whether to make a fourth one, then remembered a few days ago that I’d done exactly that. Ha!

This mixtape consists of various archival guitar pieces from around 8-9 years ago (hence the silly ol’ photo of my posing in Marfa, TX) up until earlier this year. Some of the sounds were released on compilation tracks, other mixtapes etc; others didn’t exist online outside of my hard drives.

I’ve shared this with my patreon and mailing list too; feel free to stream and download via soundcloud. More than happy for you to share it if you’d like, I’m just not popping it on any DSPs or webstores this time around.
