MUSIC & POETRY
Via Tania has been a long time running solo project for me. It started in 1997 when my friend Tony Dupé and I rented a house on the South Coast of NSW and recorded an EP experimenting with my new solo sound.
I had been playing in a band called Spdfgh with high school friends Mel Thurgar and Liz Payne and sister Kim Bowers. Spdfgh was signed to Sydney label Half A Cow and we had some fun times supporting some of our favourite bands such as Super Chunk, The Breeders, Bikini Kill, Elastica, RatCat, The Hummingbirds and many many more.
When I met Casey Rice in 1998 I had just finished at Art School and was ready for a new adventure and it seemed moving to Chicago USA was it. I was asked by Chocolate Industries Record label to re-release ‘ Thema’ the EP I had made with Tony but given the opportunity to record some more I added some new tracks and renamed it ‘Dream of…EP ‘ the title was taken from one of the original songs ‘ Universe City’.
I recorded my first full length with Casey and Chocolate Industries ‘ Under A Different Sky’ and a few more singles and EPs.
My next solo record was ‘ Moon Sweet Moon’ I mostly recorded that with Craig Ross in Austin TX and was released in the States and Europe by ‘The Hours’.
Around this time I met Charles Rumback and began touring with him and various other Chicago musicians.
My third record was a collaboration with Matthew Golombisky and the then Chicago based Tomorrow Music Orchestra. Released by Narooma Records, now Native Cat Recordings.
All these recordings are available on Bandcamp and some vinyl available from me.
Future projects, stay tuned . . .
