bandcampSep 08 2011
If you would like to listen to some songs, there are now selections from all my albums at bandcamp. I’m really into bandcamp. It’s attractive and clean. Plus they don’t bombard you with ads or spam. Sometimes the best way to the future is via the past. Anyway, also relevant to the topic of ‘online streaming’, I officially closed my myspace page yesterday, in favour of my new friend, bandcamp. I’d forgotten I had a myspace page but, once I remembered, I could not bear to look at its difficult interface for a second longer. The human impulse towards spring cleaning is more than just a spoke in our seasonal cycle.
WRITER IN RESIDENCESep 06 2011
My stint as Writer In Residence at the Booranga Writers’ Centre is now taking place in the month of October. As part of this, I will be playing a free show at the Wagga Wagga Museum of the Riverina, at the Botanic Gardens site, at 1pm on October 22nd. Bree van Reyk will be accompanying me on percussion, accordion, and whatever else we can fit in the car. I will also be holding a songwriting workshop for budding musicians (or high-flying executives who feel like a change of pace). This will take place on Sunday, October 23rd, at the Booranga Writers’ Centre at 2pm. If you are interested in attending, please email the good people at email@example.com.
