"A clammering piece of power pop that packs an emotional punch" - Dave Ruby Howe, music director at Triple J Unearthed

One of the projects I'm most proud of in 2021 is "Wake Up Call", a song and video I created in collaboration with the young people of Sydney Children's Hospital Network's ChIPS program. This is a peer support program for teenagers living with chronic conditions that empowers them through art, storytelling and community. You can read more about this songwriting project and how I got involved at www.wewrotethat.com.au  

Meanwhile, earlier in the year, The Vegetable Plot released this animated music video for "Mr Potato" created by our delightful friend Benny Time. 

Videos from 2020

2020 was a good year for writing songs, making videos and spending time in the studio. Here are some of the projects that kept me sane this year.

"Planet Home" is a song I wrote with the kids of Lansvale Public School Class 3S, in my role as a teaching artist with the Sydney Opera House's Creative Leadership in Learning Program. Covid restrictions forced us to be creative in how we performed this song. That creative adaptation led to us learning a new language together, which led to us collaborating with one of Australia's most famous and beloved entertainers. I'm very grateful to have gone on this journey with these kids and their teacher, and very proud of the end result.

I started this year with plans to write an autobiography. Some time in the misty weeks of February and March those plans started turning into songs. I first performed them at a surprise 70th birthday concert for my Mum at a recording studio on the Central Coast, backed by an incredible band who are usually out touring with the likes of Neil Finn, Paul Kelly, Tim Minchin and Missy Higgins. There was something dreamlike about this concert, which I think is captured in these two videos.
