Congratulations to Chris from Victoria, Australia and Maria from Kent, England who have won copies of my album ‘White Soul Black Hearts‘ with limited edition artwork.

Emma and myself are about to catch a plane to Athens from Paris. Considering that a number of the songs on ‘White Soul Black Hearts‘ deal specifically with Australian issues and evoke a specifically Australian landscape it feels a little strange to be promoting my music from Europe. In retrospect it was a difficult album to make as it came out of a particularly troubled and soul searching time in my life. I also employed methods that were very much new territory for me such as layering loops, ambient keyboards and backwards guitar. Despite and perhaps because of some of these challenges I was able to fashion a beautiful, textured and thought provoking album that I am otherwise very proud of.
