March and Beyond.

I’m writing this as I sit at a cafe along the promenade in Noosa. The rain is looming but it won’t deter the many that flock to the Food and Wine Festival here. I am performing with my dear colleague Ambre Hammond as part of the festival. Our performance last night was a beautiful, extremely intimate concert ‘in the round’ on the hilltop at sunset. Here is a shot from that. When we get back to Sydney its all focus on our next show at Camelot on the 28th of May. Perhaps the last time you can see us before we hit the studio to record our second album!

You can purchase tickets for our Camelot show here!

The month of March marked the launch of Tango Saloon’s latest album. Another great output from Julian Curwin. Launched at The Basement and softly at Django Bar. Its my opinion that this band is one of the underrated gems of the Sydney music scene. I’m sure I’m not the only one who shares this view. 

 

 

 

It also marked the launch of Beat Spacek’s latest solo offering. I had the pleasure of being involved in a live performance of this future soul music that transcends genre and style. Recorded live for Boiler Room TV. Another artist originally from the UK but residing in Sydney now, who is making truly original music.

Last but not least, in terms of album launches; Baby et Lulu’s ‘Album Deux’ was launched in Sydney in April. We are currently in the middle of the album tour, which is touring all around Australia. Its always a pleasure to be performing French song with these guys. Some of whom I have been working with for over 10 years now.

In between the touring I have been nestling in the studio working with some fantastic singers. Can't wait to show you what I've been working on! In the meantime you can check out a little something on soundcloud ;)
