Holidays and rest, finally! But first...

Whoever said being a self manged, independant artist was all hard work?  Well...  Whoever he or she is, they're certainly right! 

Okay, so maybe there's some fun and sun and beers in there along the way, but I gotta tell ya, it's tough going.  The past couple of years have been non stop and pretty intense for me, getting the EP recorded and out there - I've done 3 tours and a heap of gigs in the past 12 months alone.  And yes, I've done it all (mostly) alone!  Don't get me wrong, I've met some amazing people and have had amazing support and response to the EP, but it gets pretty damn tiring and lonely.  So, I figure, now it's time for a well earned rest.  It's officially summer and with the holiday season approaching it's the perfect time of year to take time out, reflect on the year and catch up with friends and family who have been amazingly patient, giving, supportive and totally neglected over the past 12 months!

Of course, it wouldn't be a Melbourne summer without the Boxing Day test cricket at the MCG and, although I have promised myself a break and some rest, it's impossible to say no to playing some tunes in the members bar there throughout the test!  (Gigs and music are such an addiction, I'm telling you...!).  I'll be back at the MCG on December 26th, 27th and 28th, presumably in the Hugh Trumble Cafe Courtyard, same as last year.  Keep an eye out and come and say hi!

Otherwise...  Here's to love, summer, sunshine, holidays and hugs - I'm off now to seek out and enjoy as much of all of these things as I can!

Until next time...  xo
