Howdy folks.

Also, I have two Sydney shows this week...

Discarded album titles

I thought I'd share a bunch of titles that I considered for my album but ultimately decided against. Why do this? Well, sometimes you gotta purge! Also, it's currently 5am in my part of the world and a head cold is keeping me awake. I am beyond clogged up. It feels like the Kardashians have taken up residence in my sinuses. So here you go...

Discarded album titles
Single Frames
Nostalgia for a Time I Never Lived In
A Walk Down to the Railroad
The Eavesdrop
18th Century Flight 

While I'm here, this happened yesterday - - nice!

And I should add that if you've been digging 'Washed Ashore', feel free to leave me a review over here -

Til next time!
