Hey There,

it’s been a long time between posts.

It is with great pleasure that I announce that my second album, The Stars My Destination, is finally finished.  As you may or may not know, it was recorded last year up at the farm in Central Queensland with Dan Luscombe at the helm and with my fellow Gin Clubbers Adrian Stoyles and Angus Agars rounding out the band. We have since added heaps of stuff, including a string quartet to four songs and a bunch of guest appearances from Liz Stringer, John Beddgood and Seja Vogel. 0It was mixed and mastered by world class gentleman Craig Pilkington at Audrey Studios here in Melbourne, and a Facebook shout out resulted in some mind blowing science fiction artwork a fellow named Keith Stewart. It has eleven songs:

1. The Stars My Destination

2. The Translator

3. Boat Dreams

4. Parrot Day

5. I Gotta Move

6. Bones Under The Dunes

7. I Just Can’t Live Like This Anymore

8. The Sleep Stealer

9. Vile Rat

10. Mediocre Comedians

11. No Security Blues

The album will be coming out in May through ABC music, and I’ll be embarking on a pretty extensive Australian tour not long after that. In the coming months however I also have a few shows about the place. Hope to see you out there somewhere!
