Ruby Heart Australian Tour Thank You

28 Nov

Dearhearts,
Swimming in the Pacific after two years away is some kind of bliss. The lakes of Berlin are great in the Summer, but bodysurfing down along Stanwell Park or Nobby Beach just empties me out into the bright, white Australian light.

It was so good to go back to Australia and, man, I was so happy for the sun, the light, the trees, the roads and trains and to see my friends and play them the music I’ve been working on in Berlin. Like all concentrated bursts of touring, it sharpened me up and I really wanted to do well for my home crowd. I got such kind feedback and had a lot of fun with old friends and new.

I want to post this massive list of thank yous to the kind and immensely talented folk who gave me a couch, a gig, a meal, a lift, a cuddle and encouragement:

Melbourne: Michelle, David, Damian, Becky, Emilie, Michael, Sean M., Darren, Nichole, Patrick, Naz, Jonathan, Lubica, Sean S., Bron and Spencer, Chapple, Lisa, Cazzy, Joel at The Old Bar, Miles at the Townie, Dave and Holly at Pure Pop, Vincenzo at Don Vincenzo for the coffee, Dono and A1, Jules, Max, The Kilniks, The Tiger And Me, Charlie Owen and all of my crew (Georgie, Bags, Ann-Maree, Bernard, PPR, Amanda, Margie, Julitha, Seri, KJ, Kate, Tom, Dave, David, Tim, Mike, Claudette and everyone else) who came to shows. Sydney: Kieran, Emily, Andrew at Proper Music Social, Cj Shaw, Pete’s Musician’s Market, Terry, the nice guy at the newsagent at Sydney Central, the Chauvel for Autoluminescent, Buzzzbar for the coffee, Stanwell Park – the most dangerous beach in NSW and its hot lifesavers. Brisbane: Paul, Helen, Kate at Black Bear Lodge, Luke, Ryan, Nerissa, Sally, blackstar for the coffee and Silke/Lucy for the bed, Craig, my brother. Adelaide: Ben Revi, Sarah, the awesome Paul Heggart, Wren, Henry and Ned, Brendan, Hugh, Walter, Naomi, Naomi’s Dad, Hawker St Cafe for the coffee and the Crown & Anchor and Grace Emily Hotel crews for lovely evenings and pear cider.

Much love to all these people. I hope to be back with the new album next year. I will have news of a big project tomorrow!

Welcome!

Greetings!

I’m told I look naughty in this pic, but I’ve just had a mouthful of custardy pinolata at Osteria Chiacchiera in Siena. I am nearly crying from foodal delight. It was my first time in Italy and I hope to return.

Welcome to my Wasp Summer blog. I’m a singer-songwriter from Melbourne, Australia, currently resident in the wondrous city of Berlin. I make Alt.Country Folk-Pop if you need a label – melodic, rootsy songs that I hope tell good stories. A friend said I had a “voice to break bottles and songs to break hearts.”

I’m out on tour in Europe throughout June and July 2011 with great Melbourne musician Water Music. Joining us for some of the shows is our friend, the Oslo-based Mark Steiner and His Problems.

I’ll update this blog with gossip, pics and tour information as we confirm shows and keep a diary for you of all the tour shenanigans. In the meantime, check me out online:

I also run a living room concert series in Berlin called Sofa Salon. If you’re in town, come and see some of the best Berlin-based and international singer-songwriters and poets perform in someone’s living room.

I don’t promise daily updates here but subscribe to my mailing list by sending an email to waspsummer [at] gmail.com and I’ll send you pretty emails every so often.

Liebe Grüße,
Wasp Summer
