SYDNEY WRITERS’ festivalApr 14 2013
As part of Sydney Writers’ Festival, my pal Darren Hanlon & I are going to be discussing our approach to songwriting with 2SER‘s music director, Andrew Khedoori. The event is called ’2SER In Conversation’ and it will take place on May 23 at The Green Room in Enmore. It’s free, but space is limited, so you do need to reserve a spot. More information is here.
MUSIC WORKSHOPMar 11 2013
I’m going to be talking about the practical side of being a musician at the upcoming installment of the workshop series, I Manage My Music. This one will be in Sydney, at UTS, on April 6. My old primary school buddy, Josh Pyke, will be talking too. It’s quite hard making a living as a musician. You have to write songs, record them, and tour them for ages. And there are serious overheads -like paying heaps of people, and keeping oneself awash with beer and overpriced illicit drugs. So if you’re interested in a How-To for balancing your musical chequebook and conquering the world, I hope I can steer you in the direction of someone who has the answer. ROFLz! No, seriously, it’s going to be readily informative.

Hello awesome children and families of Perth! I’m very happy to’ve been invited to play the songs from my children’s album, See!, at The Awesome International Arts Festival For Bright Young Things, which is happening in October.
