Tamworth Country Music Festival Success  

Unfortunately, due to some health issues, I wasn’t able to make the Tamworth CMF this year. And we’ve been missing the great music and friends! But I am over the moon to learn I’ve won a Gold Medallion Media Award for Male Vocalist of the Year and National Male Artist of the Year, and a Traditional Country Music Awards of Australia Top 10 Album of the Year award, for my latest album 'Everyone Has a Story' 😊

Thank you to everyone involved in these awards! I am very humbled and honoured, and appreciate so much all the support from radio announcers across the country who voted for me. As always I am so thankful for the endless encouragement and support of my wonderful wife Sue, great mates Lindsay and Reegan Waddington at Kross Kut Records, and family and friends. Thank you all so much ❤️🙏🏻

"Stronger" is going strong! 

I'm happy and excited to see my latest single 'Stronger' doing so well! Sitting at #3 in the Country Songs Top 40 chart :) A huge thanks to my good mate, co-writer and producer Lindsay Waddington for bringing this song together. The feedback I'm getting from lots of folk is very encouraging, and great to know it's connecting with people :)

'Everyone Has a Story' single release 

I have been so happy with how Everyone Has a Story has gone in the charts. It has reached #5 in the Country Songs Top 40, Official Tasmanian and OZCMR Top 40, and International Mainstream Country Music Top 40 charts. I'm very grateful that so many people are hearing this song :)

Australian Songwriting Contest  

I'm very happy to learn that four of my songs have been shortlisted in the 2019 Australian Songwriting Contest, in the Songs for Children, Ballad, Country and Australia categories. A number of my songwriting friends are also shortlisted, so I'm very honored to be there with them, good luck everyone! :)

Josie Awards Nomination 

I'm pretty excited to be nominated for Male Rising Star Vocalist, in the Male Vocalist of the Year category of The Josie Music Awards 
I hope to meet the other nominees at the Dolly Parton Celebrity Theatre, best of luck to all! :)

New Video Clips 

We had a lot of fun recording a couple of video clips recently, and they're coming along a treat! Stay tuned for a release and launch date. In the meantime, here's a few pics :)

New album 'Everyone Has a Story' finished! 

I'm so excited that my new album "Everyone Has a Story" is finished! We're just in the process of having it added to the online Store and iTunes etc. I'm very proud of the album, which includes 9 original songs and a cover of an old Bob Dylan number. Fantastic production once again by my great mate Waddo at Kross Kut Records. We'll let you all know when it's online!

Recent gigs 

Here's a few pics from some recent gigs. Had a great night at the Palace Hotel Nanango, showcasing some new songs from my latest album, and a very enjoyable afternoon at the Nanango RSL on Anzac Day

Gold Medallion Media Awards 

I’m very happy to be among the finalists for QLD Male Artist of the Year in the Gold Medallion Media Awards. A huge thank you to all the radio announcers around the country, Kross Kut Records and my beautiful wife Sue, your support is so very much appreciated! Congratulations to all artists in all categories, keep up the great work and best of luck to everyone!

TSA Awards update 

I’m very happy to learn that my song ‘Travelling With You’ has made the semi-finals in the Tamworth Songwriters Association songwriting awards. Lots of great songs have made it through, good luck everybody!

Australian Songwriting Contest 2018 

I’m really happy to have received 7th place in the 2018 Australian Songwriting Contest for my ballad ‘The Ball of String’, which I think my dad will be happy about 😊 It’s the first song I ever recorded at Kross Kut Records and still one of my favourites. And nice to make Top 10 two years in a row 😊

National Old Time Music Festival 

What a privilege it was to be invited to perform at the National Old Time Music Festival in Le Mars, Iowa! We had a fantastic time there, meeting so many wonderful people and fellow artists and songwriters, and sharing some Australian country music with them. And from the feedback we heard it seemed to be very well received. 

While there, I was presented with the award for "Real Country CD of the Year", for the album "Travelling With You", and was inducted into the Old Time Country Music Hall of Fame, by the National Traditional Country Music Association of America. This is a huge honour, of which I am both humbled and proud. Thank you so much Bob Everhart, the NTCMA, and the people of Le Mars for a wonderful time!

"One Phone Call Every Year" going well! 

I'm very excited to have some news come through that "One Phone Call Every Year", the second single from my "Travelling With You" album, reached #3 in the International Mainstream Country Music Charts for airplay in April this year. At the same time I made #2 in the Artists chart, and am extremely honoured to be listed among such amazing talent!

A huge thank you to all the radio stations and presenters for playing my songs, to my wonderful wife Sue for all your encouragement and support, and to Waddo and Reegan at Kross Kut records. None of it would happen without all of you!
