Wanderlust - CD
My debut EP, Wanderlust, was released in 2015. Writing commenced when returning to Australia after touring the UK with Miners Club in 2009.
The drafting of this composition was fast. However, I struggled to find time & inspiration to complete the work.
In 2014 I moved to Nyapari, a remote community in the APY Lands where I worked & lived. This offered time & inspiration to complete the work.
Wanderlust is an audio diary of my travels & adventures over the years, bringing to life the sights, sounds, highs & lows I'd experienced along the way.
I performed the majority of the instrumentation myself, including contributions from violinists Rachel Snow & Phil Samuels.
Tracks titles are listed in Pitjantjatjara to honour the people of Nyapari & Kanpi who shared their home & culture. I'm forever grateful for both their friendship & hospitality.
