Let Her Go – YouTube Orchestra

March 2, 2017

hey guys , just wanted to share this video with you ….
one of the most incredible things to come out of “let her go” getting so big are the amount of youtube cover versions of it . for me it is the highest compliment for another artist or band to take the time to learn one of my songs and to publish their own version of it . here is a small selection of them edited together . watching it made me feel incredibly humbled and i hope you guys enjoy it too .
massive thanks to Nikki Fair, Damian Taylor and Mallory Brayman for working so hard to put this together and to all of the singers and musicians involved .
share if ya dig it 🙂

Passenger | A Kindly Reminder

February 17, 2017

hello everyone ,

hope you’re all doing well .

here is a new song that i wrote a week or so ago and after much deliberation have decided to share with you all …

let me start by saying i have never felt the need to write a song like this before . i am by no means an expert in global politics nor feel that my opinion should be any more valued than the next guy . i do feel , however , that we all have a responsibility to speak out about the things that we believe in . whatever they may be and in whatever fashion we choose . this should be a basic right for everybody .

secondly , please take this song with a pinch of salt . there is of course a message behind it but at the same time it really is meant as a bit of fun and light relief 🙂

I’m well aware that some of you won’t share the opinions that are voiced here and i’m by no means trying to force my way of thinking on to anyone .

if however you agree with what i’m saying and want to get behind it then please share it . if enough of you do , who knows this might reach a few people and even make a small difference .

if you feel passionately about it then it is available to stream or buy from here.

every penny that is made from sales , streams and views will be donated to a charity working on the front lines of the refugee phenomenon by providing search and rescue services in the mediterranean to the men , women and children fleeing persecution and violence .

thank you to @jarrad seng photography for bending over backwards to make this video happen .

to @sarahlanarch and stephen casey for the briliant illustrations and animation.

to my manager dan for always backing me and somehow getting this all together so quickly and also to chris vallejo and my wonderful band for getting involved .

thank you all so much for watching .

If You Go – Official Video

February 5, 2017

ello legends !
hope you’re all having a lovely sunday 🙂
here is the new sunday night / morning video ….
its a bit of change this week – we decided to use a song from the album as opposed to a new demo .
Jarrad Seng has been filming it over the last few weeks as we’ve been traveling around australia .
the song is “if you go” which is all about those amazing early stages of a relationship and falling in love . its also about being present and enjoying the most simple and beautiful moments in life .
massive thanks to all of the lovely couples that took part and thanks to you guys for watching 🙂
if you like it then please do us a huge favour and share this video around as much as you can .
thanks you for the brilliant support and i hope you enjoy the video !
