Songwriting in Los Angeles

Im getting settled in Venice beach LA, and loving the amazing weather (considering its winter)

Im already 2 sessions in and really enjoying getting to focus on songwriting.

On Monday i had an amazing session with my old mate Gary Beers from INXS and we co wrote a very cool song together... so cool to hang out with mr Beers :)

Yesterday i was back working again with the very talented Pam Sheyne and Mike Krompass... We are working on 2 songs and they are sounding great.

Tomorrow I'm back working with Charles Scott from Bad Robot.. Cannot wait.

I'll keep you posted on how things are going.

LA bound

Howdy

Just got back from lovely Bali a couple of days ago and it was so great to charge the batteries.

Really looking forward to getting back into LA today... as i write this im waiting to board the flight out of sunny Sydney.

Im doing some more co writing with some of the top writers in LA, and i cant wait to get started. Some of the writing will be for my own releases but i will also be writing for different artists and TV/movies

 

Cheers

2015 starts like a dream

Happy New year everyone.

2014 for me was a very busy year with over 200 gigs and many great songs written.

Although we are only a few days into the new year, 2015 has started great and I'm really positive about this year and looking forward to releasing some new music and some great gigs.

Im still buzzing from the 3 sold out Sydney Opera House shows on the 2nd,3rd &4th Jan 2015.. the show was called 'All You Need Is Love', and to perform the great songs of the Beatles with a 50 piece orchestra in the best concert hall in the world really was a dream come true.

As i write this I'm waiting on a flight... we are off on a family holiday (first one in 5 years)... so can't wait to recharge :).. and plan 2015.

When i return I'm really looking forward to getting back in to Los Angeles at the end of january for a month of songwriting with some of the worlds best... Life is great!

keep and eye out for some music this year and hopefully see you at a gig soon.

God bless
