Real joy = community?
When’s the last time you smiled and laughed so hard with a group of people that your mouth hurt?
Today I went to the Preston fresh food markets (Melbourne, Australia), and heard the sound of drums and excitement.
When I found the source, I couldn’t pull myself away. A group of dancers from the Asanti Dance Theatre were performing, playing infectious rhythms, dancing, performing acrobatics and cheeky tricks (like a guy spinning a large metal bowl balanced on the end of a long wooden stick that disappeared into his pants and was steered by his groin area)!
A huge crowd gathered to watch and smile together. The performers were magical, but so was that feeling of being part of a BIG group of people all so joyful together.
I want more! We could all use more.
When’s the last time you had that feeling, and where was it?
The Asanti Dance Theatre hold workshops, drumming tours to West Africa, performances and dance classes in Melbourne, Australia. More info here: http://www.asantidancetheatre.com
Happy safe, wonderful new year to you! Thank you for lending your ears this year, for the lovely smiles and conversations we’ve had at shows and online, for contributing to my Pozible campaign to help fund my new record (still coming!), and for sharing my music with your family and friends. You were such a big part of making my year one of the best yet!
Looking forward to sharing 2014 with you!

Have questions about crowdfunding? I’m guest speaking at a FREE workshop tomorrow about how I crowdfunded for my new record. Spread the word to your creative mates!

Dance/Electronic Artist of The Year!
Last night I walked a red carpet for the first time, in Sydney for the Australian Independent Music Awards.
I was a finalist for my song "Feet In The Sand", produced by my talented friend Dave Crowe. I had no idea I was going to take out the award, and was a shaking mess attempting to walk up to the stage to accept it!
What a thrill! Thank you very much for your well wishes! We did it!
You can watch my clip for my winning song here.
I’m a finalist in the Australian Independent Music Awards for my new single “Feet In The Sand”! I’ll be heading up to Sydney for the awards night in Nov.
Help me win People’s Choice Award
