Just played the last gig of the Oregon USA shows! Music really is the universal language and it's been a pleasure sharing some of my music in your country America! all in all it has been a truly unique experience, from road tripping with philippa through California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and here in Oregon seeing some seriously mind boggling scenery, amazing national parks and meeting like minded people along the way.

Huge thanks to the people who made this journey possible Mark Mccord, Deb Riechers, The Fret Drifters, The Bruthen Blues & Arts Festival committee and sponsors for the amazing opportunity through the international musicians challenge (muso's friends check it out!) to travel overseas, playing to audiences on the other side of the globe! Looking forward to making it back to USA in the years to come :)

Aswell, it's been a blast sharing the stage with Reuben Stone Hit Factory (New Zealand) for these shows! Take a minute to check out his music. I'm sure we'll be playing a show or two again when that melbourne summer rolls around.

on that note someone better dust off that snow mobile, melbourne winter cya soon!
