I hope you have had a fabulous start to the New Year 2014! It’s always a time of great reflection and goal-setting for me.. although I tend to set goals throughout the year. This year feels like a different year already for me – I have wiped the slate clean to start again on some new ideas and goals and instead of ‘raising the bar’ as most goal setting things say to do – I have decided to lower it!! as in ‘lower my own bar of expectations and be kind to myself’ it feels good and it feels right for me right now.
I have also got some clear goals on how I want to interact and use my energy this year and it includes saying no to some things that I would normally say yes to, and conserving my energy for things that I feel are really important and worthwhile. That means doing less shows and focussing on doing really great ones when I do! as well as starting some new projects… learning Spanish, starting my song a week project, and saving time for loved ones and family.. smelling the roses..
My Australian Tour Dates this year are:
Friday 10th Jan Ellington Jazz Club Perth
Saturday 11th Jan Nannup Lavendar Farm
Saturday 25th Jan Carus Thompson & Prita Music at Clancy’s Fremantle

I am also LAUNCHING MY NEW LIVE ALBUM ‘Live in Düsseldorf’. It was recorded at an intimate concert last year in Düsseldorf, Germany! By Kyung Han of Stadtklang at a great venue called Spoerl Fabrik. It Includes 14 tracks: Fire In Your Eyes, Elephants & Tigers, You Did me Wrong, Cowboy Song, I got the Fire, My Home, Blue for You, Secret, Love Come Around, Stronger, Wharfie, Take it off, Time with me, Get out of your own way. It has great black and white photos by Glenn Stephenson, and Filip Van Lerberge. My fabulous friend Caroline Wise created the graphic design of the album for me, it was funded by the amazing ‘fairytale’ supporters and I am just so HAPPY it’s HERE!!

I’ve been lucky enough to be able to spend some summer sunshine time in OZ with my family for the last week of 2013 and first week of 2014 it was really special and filled me up with so much love!!! We had an awesome day at Kings Park in Perth overlooking the city. It is such a special spot and the kids had a ball riding their scooters and feeding the ducks!!
I would love to see you at a live show in OZ if you live here or have some friends who might like to come down you can buy tickets online for most of the shows:

ps. My favourite dream-goal-idea planning tool is the ‘Leonie Dawson Life Planner’ it’s full of colourful pictures and wisdom. I am a very visual person so it really resonates with me! It asks you questions and prompts you to write what you really want to create in your life, there are also 2 versions – the biz and the life one – I’ve got both and have had enjoyed filling it out the ‘life’ version over the last 2 weeks. I’m also having a get together with one of my biz buddies next week to fill out my biz goals and dreams… 🙂 you can download your copy here:
