A few new interesting websites

Anth from Joomlabamboo, who actually created this great website/space for me to share my music, news and ideas, put me on to a very interesting site today. It’s called hobnox. Here is the link…hobnox
It is a music site with audio tools to create music as well as create a profile. I am not really sure how to use it but I did set up a profile at this address www.hobnox.com/mattkralph
Check out the site if you are curious.
The other one I came across today is called Behance. It is a profile site for creative types but seems to have an emphasis on helping creatives achieve their goals. Here is the link…Behance
Tomorrow night I am performing a song for The 5 Chefs dinner at The Four Seasons. It is a major fundraising event for the Starlight Children’s Foundation. I will be performing with Lenni and Taline in our role of Captain Starlight, where we spend time in hospitals entertaining the children.
Then it is off to Little Creatures the next day for my gig with Mister. Should be fun!
Here is a still from the Behance site showing an example of a layout…

Nadene Pita’s debut album

Nadene Pita is a fantastic singer, violist and songwriter and she is about to launch her debut album, Turning Arrows into Flowers. It is an awesome album and is the result of a great collaboration with producer Tony Dupe, who also has produced albums for Holly Throsby. She has had some of Australia’s most respected musicians working with her including Hamish Stewart on drums, Brendan St Ledger on piano, Alex Hewetson on bass and Kate Adams on cello. It is a really exciting sound with amazing arrangements making it extremely atmospheric, moody and rich. It is definitely going to be one of my staple listens and I really recommend checking it out. My guess you will love it and be one of the first to hear it. Her link is here…Nadene Pita
I am really lucky to have Nadene joining me on the 22nd of June at The Basement, which will be a pretty rare coming together of my whole band. I am really happy to say that Kitch’s band, The Scarletts will also be playing, so it is going to be a full night and hopefully one that can make. Thanks for reading my blog and I hope you get a chance to check out Nadene’s debut album. It is amazing!!!

Here’s a photo of Nadene.

In Fremantle for a Creatures Loft gig with Mister this Friday

If you are free this Friday night, and can make it to Freo, Mister and I are going to play at The Little Creatures Loft Bar. Really looking forward to it. It will be a solo set for me but Mister will have his cranking band. It will be so great to be back in Freo and drinking their beers straight from the source. The venue is fantastic and it is always a fun night when we play there. We should kick off around 8pm. Hope to see you there!
If you would like to check out Mister’s myspace, his music is awesome. Here is the link. Mister
