So, the time has nearly come to introduce the new album to parts of the east coast, incl. Sydney, Melbourne and Hobart. I’ll be playing with some great artists along the way and will be joined onstage in Melbourne by some great local musicians to help bring the songs to life. Kicking off June 7 in Brisbane and winding up on the 22nd in Hobart. Come along or spread the word if you can’t make it. I’ll have hard copies of the new album for sale in each of the venues.
Wow! So this is the uber cool new vid for El Corazon, track 7 from the new album Year Of The Dog. It was shot and edited super quickly by two Brisbane based videographers, Jezza Keegan and Tom McCaw, with the talented Morgan Hann providing the piano playing. Enjoy!!
So! Looks like we’ll be starting work on a new video for the next single off the album this week, which is pretty exciting. We’re looking to get it out as soon as possible so I will post news on the progress as it comes in. On the gig front, we’re also putting an East Coast tour together which should take in the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Byron Bay, Yamba, Sydney, Melbourne and Hobart. This will be happening in June, so once those dates are confirmed I’ll post them up here also. Thanks to everyone who turned up at Crosstown last Friday for the show with Rattlehand. It was an intimate little gig, and I hope you all enjoyed the music. Phil Smith.
So the lovely folks from 612ABC here in Brisbane have invited me to be part of their Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue show this Friday night (28th March). Hosted by Rebecca Levingston, we’ll be playing some songs in the studio and chatting about the new album Year Of The Dog. The premise behind the show is to pick 4 songs, 2 of which will be played live in the studio. 3 songs from other artists which have been an influence, and an original song of mine which is new. The interview will be airing from 8–9pm.
Huge thanks to everyone who turned up to the Old Museum on Saturday the 8th of March and helped to make the album launch so memorable. We all had a ball up on stage, and by all accounts so did everybody who attended.
There will be some more gig dates coming up very soon, as well as some media reviews of the new album Year Of The Dog, so keep your eyes on this space. In the meantime I’m attaching a link to the video released last week of the second single–Homeward Bound–from the new album.
