It sure has been awhile since the last newsletter. A lot has been achieved since then.
The Dusty Sky and Aussie Favourites Bluegrassed albums has been vey successful additions to my album catalogue.
I have now commenced work on my 16th album, a new collection of original bush ballad songs to be titled “Earn your spurs”
The album has already earned one of the highest achievements in Australian Country Music with a pre released single, “Henbury Blues” being awarded a Golden Guitar for 2018 Bush Ballad Song of the Year at the CMAA country music awards of Australia. The song written by Neville Anderson truly captures the heart and spirit of the Australian Bush Ballad and will be included on the 2018 album release of “Earn your spurs”.
Myself and Michael Vidale take the production reins for this project being recorded at Phil Punch’s Electric Ave Studio in Sydney. We have gathered some great new songs written in the traditional bush ballad style that fans of my music have come to expect from my career. Song writers on this new project include Neville Anderson, Norma O’Hara-Murphy, Pete Denahy, Allan Caswell, Manfred Vijars, Terry Bennetts, John O’Dea, Virginia Coad, Dean & Glen Perrett, Peter Brown & Ian Quinn.
The album should be released sometime in the next 3 months.
The big news in late 2017 was my marriage to my beautiful soulmate Camille. We had a beautiful wedding day shared by family and handful of special close friends.
During 2018 we will be travelling far and wide to various country music festivals, please keep an eye on my website gig guide for coming events and the release of my new album.
See you all somewhere along the track.
