Woodford Folk Festival (4 Jan)
We have just wrapped on five performances (and a panel session) at the famous Woodford Folk Festival, Brisbane. I have to say it has the best vibe of any festival we've played at. It wasn't just the music which was brilliant. It wasn't only the street theatre, which took everything I've seen elsewhere to a whole other level. It was the genuine warm vibe of the event. Great audiences and lovely organisers. Thanks Australia. Big shout out to Paul Watson for his efforts as our representative. Can't wait to be invited back!

IronMaori (7 Dec)
I reckon being healthy is just got to be better for you as a musician. This weekend, I joined 2000 others in the half-ironman race IRONMAORI and am proud to say, I achieved my goal as the runner for the half marathon. Our team came 43rd out of 329 teams - and it was a stinking hot day. Next year, I'm rounding up some of our top musicians to sign up. Am also eyeing up some other halfs to do in the lead up. Watch this space. PS A great playlist is an absolute must when you are running 21k.

New Songs (4 Nov)
Having fun with Paddy Free in his Piha Studio, working on two new Maori language tracks - as well as a recording vocals for a special remake produced by a wonderful musician from an awesome French dub band - all will be revealed soon....!!!

Wooooohooooo! (1 Nov)
Back to back for the All Blacks - official world champions of rugby. NZ joyous.

NZ Music Awards Announcement (13 Oct)
Happy to be announced as a finalist in two categories at the NZ Music Awards 2015 - for Roots Album of the Year and Māori Album of the Year. Big shout out to Paddy Free and Scotty Morrison, my two offsiders/co-writers - what a fun project, one we are very proud of.
