Good times all around! I saw one of the best gigs of my life the other week thanks to Emily King. Also, thanks to the Melbourne Museum for having us down for Nocturnal Nights, here is a snap taken by the lovely David Harris. Next stop Anglesea on Saturday! Wahoozies (take that as you will). 📷 David Harris Photography

Jeff Buckley's Grace album was released 23 years ago today. It was and continues to be such a huge source of inspiration for so many artists and music fans. Lawrence and I have recently been recording piano for a new song of ours and while the mics were all set up we also decided to have a crack at this..thanks for the music Jeff ❤️
We just found out that we've been shortlisted for the APRA AMCOS PDA award. That stands for Personal Development Award, not Public Displays of Affection. Although, I am prone to that from time to time. I'll be bringing my PDA's to Sydney next Thursday for our first headline show in a while. Tickets: http://bit.ly/2rc3ot8 📷 Matt Redlich
Following a 20-date tour of the UK including performances at The Great Escape, the indomitable Ainslie Wills today announces headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney this July. Wills also unveils the accompanying visuals for new single Running Second, a stripped back version which highlights her quietly profound lyricism and musical sincerity. Her first headline shows since 2015, the Melbourne-based artist had earned an enviable reputation for her commanding stage presence. In the past year, she has been invited to support the likes of Leon Bridges, Grouplove, Michael Kiwanuka, Hiatus Kaiyote and Vance Joy. Taken from her forthcoming EP slated for release later this year, Running Second follows her appearance on #1 Dads’ So Soldier and accompanying triple j Like A Version performance, as well as her 2015 genre-bending Oh The Gold EP, a follow-up to 2013’s Australian Music Prize nominated album You Go Your Way, I'll Go Mine. With her beautifully crafted and honestly told stories, Wills has gathered an army of lifelong converts at home and internationally. Oh The Gold EP was picked up in the UK, becoming Lauren Laverne’s Track Of The Day on her BBC Radio 6 programme and played on Guy Garvey’s Finest Hour, also on BBC6. The past year has also seen Wills’ captivating live show reach great heights, recognised by main stage slots at Falls Festival, NYE On The Hill, Queenscliff Music Festival, WOMADelaide and a Splendour In The Grass appearance.
