How to Pre-Order your copy of Whistle and Hum

I am very proud and excited to announce the pre-sale launch of my 3rd studio album WHISTLE AND HUM.

This is a really special album for lots of reasons but particularly because it will the 1st album ever in our district to be engineered, produced and mastered right here. We’ve never had the facilities to do this till now and I feel honoured to be the first. The album is also all performed by talented local musicians and I am in the throws of arranging the packaging to happen here in Wanaka too. Fingers crossed that works out.

On Tuesday the 14th of May I will be launching a pre-sales campaign on which allows buyers to purchase a digital download of Whistle and Hum. You will intially recieve 2 tracks from the album as a taster. The other 8 traks will follow on June1st when the album is complete. We are in the final stages of recording now. The digital download is $7 USD which equates to roughly $8.50NZD. The link for pre-sales is

If you would like to get your hands on a hard copy of the album I will be offering the album for a special rate of $20NZD to all my current supporters and audience. The album comes in a recycled card case and includes a lyric booklet, photo page and a short blurb on the inspiration for each song.

This is an album I feel incredibly proud of. I’m really looking forward to sharing it with you. My Wanaka album launch will be in October on my return from the Whistle and Hum Sustainable House Concert Tour in Canadian and USA so by then, if you’re from Wanaka, you’ll all be able to sing along and if you’re a Canadian or US concert goer you have just enough time to crank the album in the car before I hit a town near you.
