Happy Silly Season Francesca!

I know how busy you are. Isn't it funny how we can sometimes think that being busy relates to being successful? It makes me question what success is... anyway... I have been super busy and have tons of exciting news to share... how'm I doing with the busy thing?

Last Show for 2014

Help me celebrate my last show for the year with a FREE, ALL-AGES, FULL BAND show. We can cheers with a celebratory juice together (or find a bar after the show). There will be CDs available for purchase and lots of fun and frivolity (free of charge). 

FdV with Full Band 

Queen St Mall Centre Stage, Brisbane CBD

Wed 17 Dec at 7pm, 8pm and 9pm

I promise to not play any carols, but I will play heaps of new songs.

Not Chanel No. 5, but EP No. 4!

What are you doing at Christmastime? Me? On Boxing Day, I go into the studio to record EP No. 4 with my most favouritest (yep that's now a word) producer in the whole universe - Paul McKercher. Oh he's just worked with Augie March, Sarah Blasko, Josh Pyke, Pete Murray, Eskimo Joe and won 5 ARIAs. No biggie...

I look forward to sharing photos and lil videos from the recording process with you on my Facebook music page. So you'll have to make sure you're liking this page in order to stay connected.

Can You Help? 

I need to raise $5000 to help fund the recording of this album. Can you help by making a small donation to my album fund? 

Tax deductible donations can be made here through Creative Partnerships Australia. If you would prefer to give in another way, please email me your ideas. You can email me at or just reply to this email.

Thank you to all my dear friends and fans who have already given generously. I am so appreciative of your support. 

4ZZZ Hot 100

Earlier this year, my song "The Fighter" had a good workout on Brisbane radio station 4ZZZ and now they have nominated it as a Hot 100 song of 2014. To make sure I can have this honour, vote for me here. YAY! Thanks!

Hobart and The Hungries

It has been such a satisfying experience playing regularly with other musicians in 2014. Emma & the Hungry Truth are celebrating our first birthday with our show at Wonderland Festival this Sunday. Come to our show to help us celebrate.  

January will see us tour to Hobart for Cygnet Folk Festival and MONA FOMA, and I'll be playing a few solo shows too. I look forward to sending you news of our gigs in early January.
