Greetings dear reader, whomever and wherever you may be. Welcome to the new blog section of my website. This is where I will be posting every once in a while about a whole range of topics that interest me. Furthermore, things that I believe enrich the very fabric of life!!! Music, love, travel, friendship, nature, arts, culture, adventure, birds and boats, etc. I do indeed hope to cover it all... And it shouldn't be without a wee drop of cynicism here and there either (just for good measure - I'm an old man now after-all). Mostly sunshine though, I hope...
In short: The things I love, balanced out by some of the things I hate.
I'll be sharing some of the billions of photos that I've been archiving rigorously over this past decade of recording and touring life. Along with stories of the road, its' many wonderful characters and a behind-the-scenes glimpse into how the cogs run for me and my "creative process" as an "artist" - whatever that really means??? (Potentially not as cool as it sounds - but we'll get there eventually).
If we haven't already met, my name is Michael and I'm from New Zealand. I'm a fairly nice boy who does his best to keep it all together. I'm a musician and for the better part of these last 10 years, I've lived off music - somehow. It has not been easy!!! But it has most certainly been a ride... I have many stories to tell and many insights to offer from the over-packed and broken trunk-load of lessons that I've learned so far in this dirty, yet beautiful vocation. And of course, I'm still learning - forever more so. Anyways, I hope it will be informative, inspiring and generally enjoyable for whomever may be interested.
The next post will discuss my personal experience moving from New Zealand to France for love, music and all the rest that's come from the decision to make a giant leap of faith.
Thanks for reading and see you soon!
