On Thursday the 30th of August Bj and I played at the Velma Grove Debut Headline show. We played an eight song set which included covers of Settle Down, Lonely Boy, Girl With One Eye, My Hero, Yellow, I’m On Fire, Valerie and ‘Supercocaine’.
The other supporting act on the night was The Men They Call Jayne who got the crowd nice and warmed up for Velma Grove.
I also took photos on this night, and you can see them all here!

This Thursday I’m playing another gig at the wonderful Red Bennies! This time my friend Bj Hancock is accompanying me with some guitar and vocals. We have previously worked together when we covered ‘Settle Down’ at the ‘4KidsByKids’ exhibition at Cube37.
We are on at 8:10 and it should be a great night!

She performed this live on Rockwiz, her use of loops and soul is amazing. I just love the way she re-creates this song live.
On the 21st of July 2012 I was apart of an event held at Cube 37 in Frankston. The event was called For Kids By Kids and the idea was created by the wonderful Kayla Shelbourne. Basically her friend had come to her for help with depression and mental illness and she decided to do something about the illness. She created an exhibition that showed art work done by kids in local high schools such as Mt Erin Secondary College, Frankston High ect. The exhibition’s main night was the 21st of July where there were speeches, a silent auction and live entertainment from myself and other local acts such as Blackwater Riff, Madeleine Jayne Music, Ash Ball and Tommy Lucas.
The whole night was a huge success and she managed to raise $10,000 for mental illness. It was so great to be a part of such a wonderful event for a great cause.
Below is a video of my performance from the night with Bj (Vocalist from Blackwater Riff). It was good to be able to perform and meet other local artists as well as be supporting such a great cause.
