Greetings dear reader, whomever and wherever you may be. Welcome to the new blog section of my website. This is where I hope to 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 hope to cover it all, but it might take me a little while...
I'll be sharing some of the seemingly billions of photos that I've been archiving rigorously over this past decade of recording and touring life. Also, stories of the road, its' many glorious 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 or as glam as it sounds - but we'll aim to discuss that eventually).
If we haven't already met, my name is Michael and I'm from New Zealand. I'm 30 year old dad 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 been a hell of 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 (fingers crossed). Anyway, I hope this might be at least a bit 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!
