May – the fifth month of the craziest year
Well, it’s still pretty quiet on the going outside front…. but I’m okay with that.
I do have a date this week, on the radio, with the ever tenacious and musically passionate Jules Vine this SATURDAY 16 MAY. I don’t usually share my songs in anything other than their final state, but I’m thinking that is so yesterday of me, that I’m going to preview a few not the final mix, unmastered tunes from the new album. You’ll find us on 3MDR 97.1 FM between 9-11am. My moment is around 9.30.
I’ve been going through my recorded, demo-ed but never heard songs, and have decided to place them on BANDCAMP under a title I’ve yet to come up with.
I cover a lot of ground, and they range from recent to eons ago, there’s no common thread, except that I wrote them and as I’m ditching the perfection chip and hugging authenticity close to my heart, I’m offering them up with all their sonic quirks and lo-fi glory intact. I felt sad that they were never to be heard by anyone but me so they’ll be online over the next few weeks.
And….. I had a really beautiful thing happen, someone wanted to make a donation to the TLD fund, and I invented my own 2020 bartering idea and recorded a live little concert, complete with a light show courtesy of the $2 shop.
5 songs, me in a fur poncho, solo, imperfections included. If you would like your own version, let me know and I can arrange this. You can donate what feels right and you’ll have a slice of me forever, and ever, and ever…….
Here’s a link to one of the songs I’ll be including in the at-home with myself theatrical release
I'm at it again. Another folk singing moment from my lounge room to yours. Your sweet words helped create further Iso fuelled bravery. Love in cyber space is where it's at.

Take care of each other, or at least yourself, if anyone else is too much to manage.
