Helloooo Francesca,

I recently learnt that if you have enough love and support in your life you can do anything. I am so blessed to be surrounded by loving, open minded, inspiring people. So I feel like I can do anything. It probably also helps that I've started drinking coffee again...

'Own Self' Music Video - I want YOU to help me make it

Choosing singles from recorded tracks is like choosing your favourite child. I'm not a mother and don't have kids, but I have two siblings and we constantly 'fight' over who is the favourite (clearly I am!!). Of all the newly recorded tracks from the as-yet-unreleased EP, I have an undeniable connection with the song "Own Self". So it kind of chose itself as the new single and thus is the favourite child. 

"Own Self" is a song is about embracing yourself and that no matter what, or who, lets you down, you have always got yourself. There are echoes of 70s disco era in this recording which has inspired the theme for the new music video. But I need your help to make this possible...

Insert super fun activity here

Boy, do I have a fun weekend activity planned for you! Do you have an video phone (iPhone or other similar)? Do you have internet access? Are you open-minded and willing to embrace your 'self'? Then I would LOVE you to be involved. 

I'm seeking people from ALL AROUND THE WORLD who love to embrace their own 'self'. There is movement/dancing involved, but you don't need any dancing experience at all. Simply send in a video of your own self dancing (and singing) along to my new song and sign a release form. Send me an email at and I will reply to you with a little pack outlining all the details including a download of the song and info of how to upload your video and release form for submission. Submissions close Sunday 15 Feb.

I'll be dancing too, and I have no dancing experience. Well, I attempted to dance in my "The Fighter" Music Video - but pretty much all my dancing out was edited out!! 

I am sooooooo excited about making this music video because I'm going to get my dance-pants on (and they can't edit it out!), but mostly, because of all the beautiful, soulful contributions I'll have from my friends and fans.

Summer House Concert - "Ode to Summer"

22 weeks ago, I started a Songwriting Club and each week we write a song in one hour to a given theme. In the first week of December, the theme was 'summer' and after all these beautiful summer songs flowed in from all the members, I thought it would be a brilliant idea to do a summer concert. So what better way to wrap up summer than with a Summer House Concert. The concert will feature 5 artists (myself, Tony Dean, Natalie de Jager, Audra McHugh and Erin Ross).
