⭐️🚀 LAUNCH DAY 🚀⭐️

Fishing for Stars is Here!

And it’s number 4 on the NZ charts!

FFS is Number 4 on the NZ charts

I’m so proud of this album and hope you enjoy it as much as I’ve loved creating it.
It’s jam packed with songs for kids up to age 12. I’ve included funny & imaginative songs, lullaby’s & songs about rural life and the environment, memories from my childhood. There’s even a song about a runaway chicken!

My hope is that is serves as a resource, as well as good old fashioned entertainment. And a handy stocking filler too


A visit to the big smoke 💨

What a week! I flew to Auckland for some television and radio action, and even made it along to a fantastic touring workshop hosted by APRA. It was great to catch up with a bunch of wonderful friends, including some of my buddy’s from Kiwi Kids Music.
It’s so good to be back home with my family in our quiet wee valley again, as I gear up for a bunch of concerts in the lead up to Christmas.

Thank you so much to everyone who has pre purchased the album already. Over 300 copies are on their way to you this Christmas.

Listen to the album here.
