Basement coming up Mon 18th Jan with great line up

Hi, welcome to my site. I hope you have had a great Christmas and New Years celebration. Over the last month I’ve been up to Byron for a few gigs and Perth to see family and play for my friends wedding. Soon we are heading down to Adelaide to do a season of the Bob Dylan play, which will be great. Meantime the band and I are playing at The Basement on Monday 18th of Jan with a fantastic line up. I’m just off to see Al Green so I’ll post more info tomorrow. Hope you can make it along to the gig!n242450441573_6867

Elliott Smith Tribute at The Vanguard this Thursday Night

Just thought I’d put the word out about a great night at The Vanguard coming up this Thursday (12th November). I’ll be hosting and playing for a tribute to Elliott Smith. I look at Elliott Smith as a very before his time intimate and inventive songwriter, who in some ways reminds me of an angry Beck. There will be heaps of great singer songwriters singing his songs and it’s a very full line up, so if you want either enjoy his music or discover what he was all about, come along. Tix at the door or from moshtix or the Vanguard site….which is here.
