It's now the 27th of June and I've just released the second single from my album, which will be out, I hope, in September. I was excited about a party for LOVE TOWN at The Athenaeum Library on the 25th, but it will have to wait as another lockdown took us hostage in Melbourne. The tears have dried & the quest to share my wares continues.
I wish I had the energy for the pre save / order biz & some red carpet fanfare bcos it’s come together in a gently beautiful way thanks to everyone who played on it - Ash Davies, Dom Mariani, Ben Franz & Amy Valent Curlis + Roger Bergodaz’s mix & Colin Wynne’s mastering. I hope i’m not ripping it off by pushing it out of the nest sans gigs or promotion. But right now I think it's more important to keep putting songs out & hope you keep listening to them. You can visit Love Town on my music page on this site and head to Bandcamp, and, if you feel like taking more than a holiday there you can follow the links to the sales counter.
It's a folky acoustic, baritone guitar dripping, harmony laden tale of miles & misdemeanours. It’s bitter sweet. A bruised heart beats inside a sunny country pop vessel. I would love it if you feel moved to buy it, knowing that it's being heard and taken to heart is important in this current crazy clime.
Been listening to and reading about Joni. My heart still breaks when I hear particular songs, there's so much magnificence it's hard to hold. I was very enamoured of the women singer songwriters of her generation. They seem like deities to me. My brain had a fireworks display all of it's own the first time I heard BLUE. An american girl played it for me, I was at art school, she was older and wilder and had lots of men fawning after her. It was all very exotic. We were in her apartment in Cottesloe in WA & she played the album & my 16 year old mind blew open in a brand new way. Happy Anniversary BLUE. Thank you Joni.
Over and out for now,
