During July, I played a number of gigs as part of the Umbrella Festival, South Australia’s winter music festival. The shows were produced by Emma Knights Productions. Emma, a prolific singer-songwriter herself, is an advocate for original music and I’m grateful that she’s included me in her artist lineup this year. I’ve performed at Urrbrae House, The Jade, and Vitalstatistix for SconeFest #5 and the best part was that I got to tell my stories, and share my original compositions at each one of these gigs. Thank you Emma!
As well as performing my songs during July, I also got to interview some fantastic original artists who also performed in Adelaide. I’ve published these profiles on my blog and Emma Knights is among them. Other notable artists I’ve profiled recently include: Josh Morphett; Noriko Tadano; Samuel Lau; Benji Riggs; and Kota Banks. Follow my blog The Serenade Files for more of this content.
So what’s next? I have a jam-packed spring season lined up, and I’m simultaneously rehearsing for two musical productions scheduled for September/October. One of them I’m acting in and it’s called The Deep North, and the other I’m playing keys 2/guitar 2 in the orchestra for, and it’s called RENT! I’m so excited for both of these projects, and I’ll share more on my blog and social media during the creative process.
Otherwise, I’m gigging around Adelaide as a singer-musician, vocal coaching in the studio every week, and writing a new work. I’m also preparing for the Sydney Fringe season of my original cabaret Someday – a Mindful Cabaret in September. It’s a busy but rewarding time, and I’m grateful that I get to live a creative and fulfilling life.
