SCALA turns Thirty!

... and releases a new CD!

I've been asked to play for the Songwriters, Composers And Lyricists Association (SCALA)'s thirtieth birthday party at the Wheatsheaf on Thursday 23rd November 2017.  Accompanying me will be Adrian Miller on keyboard and Clayton Werner on bass guitar.  Also on the bill on the night will be Courtney Robb and the Kelly Menhennett Trio, both worth seeing.


SCALA will also be releasing its 25th album and 18th in its CD compilation series on the night. I'm honoured to have a track included - Any Love Here.  I managed to get a sneaky photo of the CD cover!

It's Holiday Time

I had intended to release a full album of my songs this year but I'm slow at recording and getting pneumonia in October stopped me in my tracks (literally!). So I can proffer only this as a Holiday offering. I wrote it on Christmas Day 1999 but it refers back to a Christmas in 1987 when my mother had just died, I'd had a pay cut at work and the hot water service and washing machine both conked out in the week before Christmas!  I hope that none of the things described in this song happen to you this holiday time!
Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Matilda

I wrote this song in 1999 when the neo-conservative Howard government was in power. It's sad that so much about the song is still relevant now that Australia has another neo-conservative government Happy Australia Day!
