Sunny England! UK Tour/London recording

I landed in sunny (yes! sunny!!!) London yesterday and am so inspired to be here!! Thanks to some friends I met in Darwin, I have a couple of great places to stay here in this brilliant city. I will spend the upcoming month in England and Ireland, meeting up with musicians, producers and playing shows.

I am going to spend a few days with my friend Martin Russell in his London studio, adding some final touches to the music of the new record. Yes, I know I said the album was finished, but I am keen to add a couple more ideas into the mix before it is released!

I have been working on some band versions of Behind the Stone and Storm in the Weather with Jarren Boyd, brilliant drummer from Darwin band worldfly, and the songs are really coming to life with the kit in the mix! Very exciting and inspiring me to continue with the plan to tour with a trio/full band, once the solo UK and Aussie tours are finished this year.
