WAM Song of the Year Awards“Undertones” has been nominated for the WAM Song of the Year Awards in the urban category!! You can vote for it as your favourite song at Perth Now… also check out the nominated tracks by my fellow Soulaverse collective members, The Brow and NDORSE & Rezide! Funny, this song has had a long journey with me… I first penned the melody, lyrics and chords at the age of 15 in response to my experience of the high school flirting game. It developed and the arrangement matured over the years until I recorded it for my EP… and here it is in the finals of WA’s most prestigious song competition: the work of a 15-year-old schoolgirl! Cool Anyways, I’ll be attending an awards night in mid-October to see how my nominated track fares in the overall judging, so stay tuned…

Also, “I Look Up” full video clip is now available!! Check it out here, and please share it around with your friends (I’m working on clocking up my youtube views as a key part of expanding the online presence of my music). Also, you can check out some photos taken during the film shoot here… many thanks to my lovely photographer, Katey Manuchehri.

Recent gig at the Ellington was on fire! It was the late show on a Saturday, which attracts a whole different crowd from the evening show… all the nocturnal creatures come out to play A great, warm audience ready to receive some brand new originals that I’d never performed before… and may I say that my band was smoking?!! Love those guys… I was reeling the next day from how well they played!  Still looking for a name for the band… someone at the gig suggested “the Flannels”. Not quite as classy as I’d like…

So what else is news? I’ve finished applying for my grant to tour WA next year (waiting on the result), and I’m now applying for the next grant: to spend some time in London working with Nelly Furtado’s guitarist and co-writer, James Bryan. Wish me luck!
