He’ll be coming down under next week, but due to a hectic recording schedule will only be performing four shows – one each in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. BBM’s Deborah Jackson caught up with him to discuss his career so far.

Travel to Western Australia

How did you get your break into the music scene?

I had been busking a lot and playing some gigs and some people from Sony had heard about me so they contacted me asking if I would be interested in doing some demos.  We just went into the studio and they liked the demos so much that they asked me if they could release them as a record.

How would you describe your sound to somebody unfamiliar with your music?

I kind of like to think of it as like James Brown or Bob Marley, but I think it probably sounds a bit more like Bob Dylan.  It is kind of folky, I like a lot of Prince music so I think that maybe a bit of that comes across.

What has been the most embarra

ssing thing to happen to you on stage?

There are probably things I should have been embarrassed about but I wasn’t, like trying to break dance at the Oxton Festival.  But it was a really good gig so I was break dancing coz I was happy.

What are you most looking forward to about your upcoming tour to Australia?

Well I haven’t played there in like nine years.  I just remember it being a lot of fun last time, the gigs were a really good craic.  It’s a nice place, if nice is the right word.
