Over January I went to Bristol in the UK. I recorded and mixed an album with John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse, Giant Sand etc) and Ali Chant. It’s sounding great and I can’t wait to share it with you in winter this year. Have a look at www.instagram.com/laurajeanmusic for photos. Here is one of JP on the drums.

Barnaby Smith at ABC arts interviewed myself, Gareth Liddiard, Dan Kelly and Kram for his blog about the art of performing. Have a look here: http://www.abc.net.au/arts/blog/studio-shots/art-live-performance-barnaby-smith-121101/default.htm
I get a bit new age when I talk about performing. Fortunately Barnaby was kind enough to edit most of it out but the phrase ‘in the moment’ does appear at least once.
This article surrounds an exhibition I was a part of called ‘Live – an intimate study of the art of performing’. Some amazing artists were involved. Here is a picture of director Jasmin Tarasin showing Rufus Wainwright how to browse the internet.
My label is turning 20. We are having a big show on November 17th at North Melbourne Town Hall. Twerps, Pikelet, Crayon Fields, Beaches and many more sweet acts are playing. I am doing a set of new songs. Here is a link to buy tickys.
Thanks for being amazing Guy and Ben, love youse.
I recently sang back ups for PK on a couple of songs on his new album, Spring and Fall. Here’s a link to a video of him chatting about it and playing a song.
I finally have a website. Kewl! Thanks to my mate Prue for setting it up.
