Music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia with a musical father. Those early years of playing music together paved the way for this journey I’m on.

Today I reside in Austin TX. Six studio albums, three GRAMMY nominations, twelve years of touring with my band The Greencards, who are taking a twelve month sabbatical brings me to this point…. the recording of my debut solo album.

I’ve already begun recording this fully instrumental album with a whole bunch of acoustic instruments. Mandolin, bouzouki, ukulele, octave mandolin, mandola, acoustic guitar. I’ve got guest musicians playing pedal steel, cello, accordion and even some electric guitar textures. It’s already been an inspiring and rewarding process…. or be it a very challenging one! I’ve been in the studio many times but capturing a solo performance is vastly different to a band situation. Here it’s just me. An instrument and a microphone, often performing a piece of music in it’s entirety, from start to finish …. I need to take a deep breath just saying that!

Using PledgeMusic as a platform I’m offering some exclusives that are very personal to me, and unique to this project. Your pledge will afford me the time and resources to record and package my debut solo album, and get the results I’m pushing for and working really hard to reach.

The album will be released digitally to all pledgers by April 7, with a physical release date in early April (tbc).
