Things have been busy the past few weeks. Producer, Jamie Hutchings and engineer Chris Colquhoun, have had their heads down and have now finished the bulk of the mixes for the upcoming album. Hopefully the new recordings will see the light of day early in the new year. In the meantime I’ve recorded a new song with my good friend Michael Carpenter for our on again/off again side project. We wrote, recorded and mixed this song in the space of about 5 hours whilst MC’s offsider Kylie Whitney filmed the results – you can check it out in the clip below:
Last weekend I also recorded 3 children’s songs for the author of the children’s book Bill The Fish. Earlier this year the book was transformed into an interactive download and the release was so successful that the creator, Brett Curzon, is now working on a seperate musical app for iPhone/iPads. Sea Shanties and a whales lullaby was the directive so we played pirates for the day. You can download Brett’s original Bill The Fish interactive book here. The new musical app should be out later in the year.
Finally, I’ll be playing a show on Friday 5th Oct at The Newsagency, Marrickville’s cosiest (secret-ish) venue with Cam MacKellar and Sarah Humphreys – we’ll play a couple of sets as “Songwriters In The Round” You can find all the ticket details here. Bring a bottle of wine and a rug and join us for the night….
