I write the songs that make the whole world sing. I write the songs of love and special... no wait that's not me... that's Barry Manilow.

I do write songs though... and maybe they don't make the whole world sing, but I know that I have made at least one young girl cry... and not just because her cat had recently died. I am very proud of the songs that I have written, but as for my bio... well it's nothing special. Put simply... I write songs.

When pressed for a description of my songs, my response is often 'suburban-folk'. I write songs about the little things and the bigger things. I write about life. I write about planes and jumping out of them. I write about small seeds. I write about tall trees. I write about standing on bindi and sleeping on clover. I write about clouds and raincoats and rainy days. I write about trams. I write about trains. I write about walking shoes. I write about Dr Suess novels and the fear of using public toilets. I write about inventors and explorers and that old t-shirt of yours that you just can't bring yourself to throw away... I'm always looking for a new point of view and a new song to write. I record these songs in the hope that people will enjoy listening to them as much as I enjoy writing them.

I think that covers it.
Why this name?
It's always been my name.
Do you play live?
Yes I play live, mostly in the Melbourne region. Check out for upcoming shows.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Access to ridiculous amounts of new music from all around the world.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Doubt it.
Band History:
Essentially I am a solo artist. But as Oliver Stone once said "being a great director is not about 'being a great director'. It's about working with great people" (I am not sure of the exact quote but you get the gist of it)... and work with 'great people' is what I have done. These 'great people' include: Ben Tolliday (bass/cello/loops/production), Richard Johnston (drums, backing vocals, vibe), Greg Cathcart (glockenspiel, piano, guitar, recorder, production), Luke Foran (backing vocals), Chris Pickering (drums), Emerson Bavinton (production), Adrian Mauro (trumpet), Rae Howell (melophone)...
Your influences?
Darren Hanlon, Bob Dylan, Art of Fighting, Gersey, Coldplay, Counting Crows, The Beatles, Bob Evans, The Thrills, Tamas Wells, REM, Radiohead, Augie March, Ed Harcourt, Sarah Blasco, The Shins, The Verve, The Kinks, Damien Rice, Jewel, The Who, Burt Bacharach, Grandaddy, Speedstar, The Sleepy Jackson, The Eels, Greg Cathcart, The Frames and many many more...
Favorite spot?
How could I choose just one?
