Jakes new kit + my little studio = great new music
More Cold Ghost songs just around the corner
Drums by Jake Morton
Cheers to Natalie and the crew of BlankGC for coming along to the show and for publishing this great review…
Look out for more Stories in 2020….
Last Friday night was an incredible evening of local stories and music. A result of positive and fruitful collaborations between myself and four amazing local Gold Coast writers, Tim Baker, Lystra Bisschop, Amy McDonald and Sean Flanagan. The amazing Bern young weaved the night together as host and Jake Morton sat studious on the drums.
Oh…and the venue was perfect…
The sold out event was showcased at The Basement at HOTA and will no doubt be the first of more to come.
Each story teller relished the proposed challenge and delivered a unique Gold Coast narrative. I have loved creating a soundtrack around each story.

Thanks again to HOTA, Home of the Arts for supporting the creation of this project through its creative development grants. There is a lot to say about the energy of arts and culture on the Gold Coast at the moment. Full stem ahead.
Rehearsal have been underway for the debut performance of ‘Stories in the Key of GC’…This Friday night (18th October)…
Here is me and Tim Baker post-jam……..Tim’s story is going to sound great…
And you might catch Tim jamming along to my new little song ‘Ricochet’ at the end of the night….
Thanks to @bytimbaker and @makejorton for being apart of it…..

This year I received a creative development grant from HOTA (Home of the Arts) to put on a show…..and not just any ordinary show.
On October the 18th at The Basement at HOTA (Gold Coast) I will be presenting Stories in the Key of GC. 4 story tellers will each present a true Gold Coast story live on stage with myself providing the soundtrack.
I am pretty excited about this project as I get to collaborate with some great local storytellers and get to be creative with sound and music. All live on stage.
Also it is the first time that ABC’s Bern Young and me have been on stage together….that alone is an exciting thing….
You can buy tickets here
If you are on the GC on the 18th of October…you must come along….
Venue: The Basement, HOTA
Date: 18th October, 2019

I am very happy to share with you this short film from Norway which features my song ‘Hide it all Away‘ from Cold Ghost’s album ‘Bachelor Tapes’. The Norwegian title is Omriss (Outline) and explores a young woman’s grief returning to her mother’s home after her death. Thanks to sound designer Andreas Pettersson for thinking of this track and well done on getting this film out there.
Look out for the bar scene. I like that dancing……and lonely drinking
Cold Ghost’s Bachelor Tapes has been nominated for ‘Release of the Year’ in the Gold Coast Music Awards…..
This is very cool…
