Dear Francesca,

How crazy is the weather in the world? As I write this message it hasn't stopped raining all day in Brisbane. I hope you are safe and well wherever you are in the world.

"Own Self" Tour - Wrap Up

On the Easter weekend, the "Own Self" single tour finished up with a soul-fulfilling concert with Sam Buckingham at Pyramids Road Wines. I am so thankful to all the musicians I had the pleasure of playing with (Emma & The Hungry Truth, Helen Perris, Sam Buckingham, Sabrina Soares, Forrester & Swan, Tony Dean, Jazz de Valence, Laura Driver and Emma Dean). If you've not heard of these musical gems, you should definitely check them out.

Thank you to all the venues for hosting me - especially a huge thank you to the people who opened their homes for the House Concerts. These concerts are beautiful and intimate and so personal. If you would like to host a house concert in your home or garden, please email me and remind of me where you live and when I go on tour again, I'll try and fit you in on my route.

Finally, thank you to YOU! Thank you for coming to my show and spreading the word about my music. I could not do it without you.

"Own Self" is the first single from the 7 songs I recorded over the New Year period. I am so grateful to have had the help of these generous supporters to donate to my album fund through the Australian Cultural Fund:

Thank you so much

I'm not quite satisfied to release all 7 songs to you just yet. That is because I want to record more songs and release an album by the end of the year. Yes, my first album!!! 

I am offering this album for Pre-Sale NOW - that means you can purchase it now - and when it's ready I'll post it to you.

To say thanks for your support, I'm giving you a digital copy of "Own Self" to play and dance along to now. You can download this upon pre-purchase.

Well, I'm off to enjoy my birthday weekend - I'm actually feeling younger, but a heck of a lot wiser ;) 

Have a lovely weekend.

Much Musical love
