My Dear Friends, Supporter & all-round Awesome-people!! I am home in Perth, WA! After flying in a couple of day ago from not so sunny Berlin to super sunny warm Perth.. Ok.. I may be rubbing it in a little.. there are great things about being in Europe for Xmas too - the Weinachtsmarkts, Glühwein and general cosy warm feeling that comes over everyone as the Winter weather descends into darkness a colder days & nights.. it's romantic in a different way. (photo taken in Hamburg after playing at a Weinachstmarkt! in St Pauli the night before) Being home again is just what I needed after some huge shake-ups in my life in recent weeks. It's so great to just get some grounding - be in the sunshine and spend time outside in nature up in the hills of Perth. I am looking forward to connecting with my special friends and family here and just enjoying being here. Taking a bit of a holiday in between my WA shows!!

Over the past years, Faulkner has worked hard to attract the attention of the European music industry, securing a record/publishing deal with V2 Records, headlining his own club and theatre tours, been a festival favourite and joined on tour the likes of Crosby Stills & Nash, Tony Joe White, Trixey Whitley, Tom Odell, as well as playing guitar for Julia Stone on her last European Tour. Five years after relocating, Faulkner is taking a break from his European touring schedule to return to Australia to present his most recent releases - Turn Me Around (2014) which debut at No. 1 in the Netherlands Alternative Charts and his latest offering UP ALL NIGHT, which was recorded in a villa in Spain with famed German Producer Ralf Mayer.

GLuckstadt! I'm loving it here! after a lot of busy-ness and running around and also massive changes, moving house, touring all over the place etc etc.. it's good to finally sit still for a little while.. and soak in the sun (zonnen shine) SHine! I also love hanging out with the family and new friends here and the Puppy!!! 🙂 so cute!! in the Beautiful backyard garden!! We had fruchstuck (breakfast) in the Garden the morning after the gig with everyone!! Check out how much food there is!! I love German Breakfast!! they really know how to enjoy food!! 😉 I wasn't planning on taking a break now - I was planning on continue-ing and meeting up with Jaimi Faulkner on tour and playing a few more gigs as guest backing vocalist and opening a few more shows.. then going back to Berlin and playing a show there.. then up to Hamburg again.. and continue-ing on touring around Germany.. I played with the gorgeous Coby Grant www.cobygrant.com in a 400 year old house / barn to a lovely crowd!! But then I got a little bit sick.. had a sore throat.. and the snotty nose came.. and the fever.. and chills.. so I said to self 'OK SELF.. do you want to keep pushing on through? or have a bit of a break for a few days??? ' after much deliberation of all the options a), b), C).. .. and keeping an open mind and open plan.. I chose to take a few days off and relax in this lovely little town.. and I AM LOVING IT!! sometimes I forget how good it is to take a break!! and enjoy where I am!! and SURPRISE surprise.. I am starting to feel better !! throat is clearing up.. head getting clearer.. noice.. ( in an Aussie Kath & Kim accent) I was lucky enough to be invited on tour with my great friend Jaimi Faulkner www.jaimifaulkner.com who is touring his new single release 'In my fathers' boots' and getting radio play & TV appearances in Holland!! and we played some great shows in Dachau, Torgau, and Ingolstadt!! at a couple of festivals.. with lots of people!! it was so much fun to be on tour with a band again and to be a singing dancing backup vocalist alongside the awesome Jacinta Caruana (fellow Aussie singer songwriter from Melbourne - check her out www.jacintacaruana.com ) I also got the opportunity to open for JF at the festival Jazz in Allen Gassen - check out the crowd!! oh yeah!! ( cue dreams coming true bit!! ) In the last few weeks I have also played at one of the most beautiful intimate festivals in Aarhus, Denmark!! the Melodica Festival Aarhus!! I met so many wonderful people and great musicians, there were sing-a-longs all weekend long, good vibes and general soul-full-filling times!! I had a great host Ole' who took me to see the Queens' summer palace and gardens!! as well as taught me how to say a few things in Danish 'du a e smuck tre' (you are a beautiful tree) 🙂 which I managed to sing in one of my songs..
