My new album ‘A World Outside’ based around a very unique road trip I embarked on last year is coming out Oct 27th 2023.
Road trips have always played a pretty large role in my life. They have this amazing ability to transport us elsewhere. There’s a sense of freedom and adventure that are pretty hard to match I love the challenge of the unexpected, and this one was that…
It was a momentous one, hundreds of miles away from civilization, a land steeped in ancient indigenous and geological history, following a landscape bathed in magical red and orange hues…
Just like the scenery on a road trip transports you, I think music does the same thing, it heightens that sense of emotion and taps into that deep sense of our own selves… I wanted to douse myself in this landscape’s wild and untamed openness interpreting that experience through music. It’s a way of making lasting memories and this album is my way of documenting that… I look forward to taking you there…
In Celebration of World Sleep Day 2023, 22 universal music group artists from across the globe debut 50 new pieces. Music has always played a significant role for me in quieting the mind. My contribution, Time To Forget, is about culling the vast amount of information the brain collects, absorbs and processes throughout the day and letting it all go. The melody has this purposeful hypnotic riff throughout lulling you into that peaceful quiet space we all love to go and this kind of ambient music is an inviting way to take you there. I hope it brings you the quietude this kind of music brings myself.
The track features my long time beautiful friend and Cellist Peter Hollo and some spectacular soprano vocals performed by Sandra Lui and Josephine Stark.
After a 6 week tour in Europe and recent return from the overflowing & colourful Dark Mofo festival I’ll be doing my last show for a while with my full line up!………
