A huge thank you to everyone who came to the shows in Canada, and everyone there for welcoming us in with such warmth. See you next summer! Back to sweltering New Orleans to continue writing the new album, with a couple of jaunts up to Mississippi on the very near horizon too…
I'm lucky enough to be headed up to Canada for a couple of months, and you can catch me at a handful of shows while I'm there. First up is The Cove Country Inn this Saturday night, and what a spot to kick off! Can't wait to see some old friends and new faces in paradise. Spread the word!

A huge thanks to everyone who came out to the Thredbo Blues Festival and made it such a special weekend, all the organisers, sound crew, and the whole town for welcoming everyone in so warmly. If you've never been, you have to do it.
I'm also stoked to be joining Ross Fear for the Australian Spectrum Show tomorrow night from 9 PM on 90.5 FM. Going to be previewing some new songs. Just gotta finish writing them now.
Just a week away until Thredbo Blues Fest kicks off, and there's still tix available. Gonna be a shit hot weekend of wall to wall blues. See you there!

Please spread the word!
It’s been a little quiet on the home front, but all for good reason; sometimes you can get lucky. I’ve been fortunate enough to spend the past three months in Canada, buried in the beautiful community of Chaffey’s Lock, stacking up a bevy of ideas for the next album. An enormous thank you to Russ, Brenda and everybody there who made it such a special summer, and for making the whole trip possible, it’s the first of many! So it’s back to New Orleans now to mould the ideas into songs, and the songs into an album. Probably my favourite thing in the world. I will keep you updated. There’s also going to be a little trip to the Delta in early November, so keep ‘em peeled.
A little Jazzfest special for ya!
I'm going to be opening up for Jon Cleary tomorrow from 5:30 at Chickie Wah Wah. Music all night, the weather is perfect, come on out.
Had a great night to end the tour at The Blue Biscuit, on the hallowed turf of Indianola. Much gratitude to everyone who came out to the shows and bought CDs, and of course for the endless southern hospitality. Be back very soon.
Had an absolute ball at the Southbound Tavern in Helena last night, thanks to everyone for the warmth, I’ll be back soon.
