'Watt 'A Rising Star !!


Hey There,

Welcome back ! I have recently returned from the Mildura Country Music Festival which was a lot of fun. And I even won the Capital News Rising Star Female at the Southern Stars Independent Country Music Awards !!! Which I'm very excited about ! The other artists that took out awards on the night were Carter and Carter with One Stop Entertainment Album of the Year, Duo of the Year and Artist of the year. Felicity Urquart won the Apra/Amcos Single of the Year, Amber Lawrence took out the Female Vocal of the Year. Male vocal of the year was Paul Costa and Capital News Rising Male Star went to Markus Meier. Heritage Track of the Year was won by Graham Roger and Barry Thornton Memorial Service award was given to Joy Laurie. Congratualtions to all of the winners and nominee's ! And thank you also to John Arnold and the organisers of the Festival.

The Mildura Country Music Festival ran from the 28th of September until the 7th of October with the top Independent Country Artists in Australia playing for the crowds. 10 days of non stop music what more could you ask for ?

Recently the Australian Songwriting Contest was held in Sydney and I was lucky enough to come runner up in the Country section with my self penned song "Close The Door" from my album Lead You Astray. This is my first song writing award and hopefully the start of some great songs to come !

Thanks for dropping by and reading my latest news. You can check out my latest clip on my music/video page and if you'd like to purchase a copy of Lead You Astray just visit my shop.
