Universalist EP (2017)
Universalist is a 5 track EP and prelude to the soon
to be released "On This Fine Occasion" album. I've
written a bit about each track below: I enjoy
bushwalking and there is a national park behind
where I live so I quite often walk up through that
park. At the centre of the park there’s a look out
with a trail marker erected on it… it stands about
12 to 14 foot tall and has a tag hanging from it
which has “Marker 7-58” on it. It’s a very peaceful
spot and it has amazing 360 degree view from it.
Marker 7-58 was the inspiration for the title of my
second album and also for the opening track on the
Hotel Hemingway’s inspiration came from the Ambos
Mundos Hotel in Havana, Cuba. Earnest Hemingway
spent quite a bit of time in Cuba in the late 1950’s
and early 1960’s, he also wrote 3 of his novels in a
room in the hotel. The room has been kept as
Hemingway left it in 1961, his bed, fishing rods &
typewriter are all still in the room as it’s been
set up as a memorial to him. I visited Cuba a couple
of years ago and wrote the song about Earnest and
Friday’s In December’s inspiration came from Peter
Maslen (Maz) who is the drummer on all of my music.
We were sitting in the studio between takes and we
started reminiscing about the freedom of youth and
the importance music played in both of our young
lives… there’s even a reference to one of Maz’s
bands, Boom Crash Opera, in the lyrics… “hands up in
the air” which is a Boom Crash song.
I don’t think there would be too many questions
about the inspiration for the song Mother once
listened to. I wrote this song in memory of my
mother for my 3 sisters and myself… she passed away
many years ago at a very young age. I also intended
for this song to be one of utmost respect for
everyone who has lost their own mother.
It’s a very personal song and I remember the night I
was writing the lyrics as it’s the only song I’ve
written with tears flowing freely down my face.
Beat is a song about the experience of recording my
first solo album. I found myself in Soggy Dog
Recording studios working with some of the finest
musicians in Australia… musicians that I’d grown up
listening to and admiring.
The experience was somewhat surreal but the
musicians were great people and I’m very happy to
regard them as friends these days… I’m still
recording with many of them.

About Whiskey Bride ©:
Whiskey Bride is a quirky up tempo “fiddle driven” alt. Bluegrass
song that juxtaposes “black humour” against an upbeat danceable
melody It tells the story of a soldier returning home from war to
find out that his love has moved on. The ear pleasing melody and
fiddle-work is an interesting counterpoint to the angst of lost love
and betrayal. In the end Whiskey Bride has a “life goes on” kind of
vibe, that keeps your toes tapping. (Fiddle by the masterful fiddler
Aaron Solomon) Whiskey Bride © is available on iTunes, Apple Music,
Spotify, Pandora, Youtube (https://show.co/K8fNJSM) and most other
major streaming and download platforms.
