hello AUSTRALIA ,
its lovely to be back on this side of the world !! hope you’re all doing well !
some of you might have seen that i am lucky enough to be supporting Ed Sheeran on his australian / new zealand stadium tour in a few weeks time . i can’t tell you how much i’m looking forward to it all !!! its pretty crazy to be playing to such massive audiences and while that is a huge buzz i felt like i wanted to do something alongside it which was a little more intimate ….. so i’m planning to busk in all of the cities that we’re playing in as we go around .
a lot of you will know that for many years busking was the way that i funded my touring and albums and although that might not be the case anymore its something that i still love to do whenever i can .
we will try to give you all as much notice as possible as to where and when it will be happening . we’ll be starting this weekend and as ed’s tour doesn’t get down to these parts we’re hoping to be at salamanca markets in HOBART on saturday and in rundle mall in ADELAIDE on sunday . weather permitting we will aim to start at about midday but look out for more detailed info closer to the time !!
in the meantime please feel free to spread the word – it would be amazing to see as many of you as possible .
loads of love .
ps here is a photo from last time we did this haha

hello everyone , hope you’re all doing ok !
sorry i’ve been so quiet on here – it feels like ages since i’ve posted anything ….
its been quite a busy time behind the scenes with lots of exciting passenger related things going on some of which will be announced throughout this week so keep an eye out (especially if you live in AUSTRALIA….. )
for now though , i wanted to share something with you all .
i was recently lucky enough to spend some time in JAPAN – a country that i’ve been fascinated by for many years and has always been high on the bucket list of places to visit .
i was only there for a week but it completely blew my mind . the people , the food and the culture generally was like nothing i’d ever experienced before . i really hope i can go back one day to explore it further and perhaps play a gig or two …..
whilst i was there i recorded this song with a few really good friends of mine – some of you will be familiar with Stu Larsen and Natsuki Kurai (if not then please check out there music when you can ) they’re two of the best people that i know and both extremely talented dudes . we were also joined by natuski’s lovely wife chica and their unbelievably cute 6 month old daughter nagi (listen out at the end of the track for her guest vocals …. pretty adorable :-))
in light of the recent heartbreaking events in paris , beirut and other areas of the world , i’d like to dedicate this song to anyone that has been directly or in fact indirectly affected by it all . it feels like a strange time at the moment . a time where it is perhaps easy to forget the good in people and the beauty that we create as human beings and to focus only on the tragic and terrible things that we do to each other and the environment . i don’t want to make a big statement here , only to offer this song in the hope that by putting something simple and positive out in to the world that it might help in some small way .
thanks so much for taking the time to read this and hope you enjoy the song .
