?UESTION: Where’s all the crappy music in Sydney?
…because everyone I heard was brilliant.

Katie Noonan, Jonti Danilewitz aka Jonti Dan aka Danimals, Josh Pyke, Electric Empire, Mark Pritchard, Dereb Desalegn aka Dereb The Ambassador, Other Tongues music, Huwston, Anna Brennan, Spacek, Seekae and many more. Thanks for all who met up and shared their time and soul with me. I’ll reflect your shine on the world back home.

Now off to Melbourne for what’s sure to be the motherlode.
