Steal

November 17, 2021

Back in June, I uploaded a track + video called, ‘Steal’ to YouTube. I forgot to upload it here :O You won’t find the track on Spotify, but it is available to listen/or purchase on Bandcamp.

“Steal” is an instrumental bonus track I produced, recorded, and performed. It was mixed by Magoo aka Dr Goo and was written and recorded at my home late last year. Originally, it was a full lyric/song but I decided to strip away the vocals and keep the guitar, bass, and guitar parts to make it more of a reflective guitar journey. If gota cola* was alive today, I would have probably brought it into the band room for my lovely band mates to make something better of it. But there you go. 🙂

I shot the video using an iPhone on a train journey up to central Queensland earlier this year. I also edited the clip on my phone….so quality isn’t great. It was a bit of a challenge shooting the footage solo, but I got there. I edited the clip on my bed while recovering from a Fibromyalgia flare-up; the editing work done lying in my bed was distracting because it allowed me to still remain creative while in a flare-up.

*Incidentally, 2021 is the 20th anniversary of Gota Cola’s 20th anniversary “Guaranteed Rustless” on Valve/Warner. In that year, “Sighing”, “Wavelength’s Phase”, “Eddy” and “Rabbits” were gota cola’s most played tracks from the album on 4zzzfm. The band also played three live songs from their debut self-titled EP on the AusMusic show in 2000 amongst a busy tour schedule. (Tracks performed: Eddy, Sighing, Vinyl Car)

Emergency

This is an emergency

I am echoing on every word that fades

And I try to follow your soul like wind on smoky days
I am carrying on without your sweet embrace
But life is difficult that way

I keep worrying on every stroke I make
And I feel I’m forgetting our time with every sea that’s changed
There’s a cost to being empty
I’m at a loss to leave here lonely

This is an emergency (help me now ‘cause I cannot breathe)
This is an emergency (help me now all I do is dream)
This is an emergency (help me)
This is a ….aaah

I keep carrying on, in every breathe I take
And I try to carry the load in every chord I play
But If I worry about all these growing shades
Life is difficult that way
Whoah!!
Oh Yeah

This is an emergency (help me now ‘cause I cannot breathe)
This is an emergency (help me now all I do is dream)
This is an emergency (help me)
This is a….aaah Aaah, yeah! Oh yeah! oh yeah!! Oh yeaaahhhh! Oh yeahhh! Ohhh!

This is our emergency (help me now ‘cause I cannot breathe)
This is our emergency (help me now all I do is dream)
Help me now cause I cannot breathe
Help me now all I do is dream
Help me, help me!!
Aahhh

‘White Ash’ out Friday, April 16

April 16, 2021

Hey Folks,

Owing to a chronic health condition, it has become difficult to perform live. As a result, I am prioritising my energy towards creating music in the studio at home (and trying to stay productive).

So news is today I have released another song ‘White Ash’ –– my 3rd official independent single this year. ‘White Ash’ arose out of Lock Down last year. One morning, I dreamed of my father who had passed on shortly before. Dad hummed a melody to me in the dream. When I awoke, I kept the melody in my head and re-played it on the piano with only the word, “Mesopatamia’. Goo could see I was having trouble and penned the first lyric draft which became the basis of the chorus lyric and allowed me to finish the verses in the song. Here the result of our collaboration.

Thank you so much for listening and your continued support.
