The decision to go by my first two names may come as a surprise or seem random to some, but it was actually quite natural & easy.
It’s a progressive reflection of this road to discovery I’ve kinda been on over the past couple years. A lot has happened & that’s impacted every area of my life.
It’s a new time, a new beginning & I’m excited about what lies ahead…
Stoked to finally share with you guys that I’ll be part of an all-new cast for this year’s Coca-Cola Christmas In The Park!
Joining the likes of Ria Hall, Lavina Williams, Tami Neilson, Andrew Papas and Nyree Burt, I’m in some pretty amazing company. We’re LIVE in Christchurch on Nov 29, then in Auckland on Dec 13.
Stay tuned to my Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for more updates ;).
Had a great time performing at Sisters Love Pink High Tea in Erina Fair. The event was all about community, food and raising funds for the McGrath Foundation.
My beautiful friend, Darlene Zschech, shared inspiringly about her cancer journey as well.
Thanks for having me, DZ, it was an honour and a privilege.
Good chatting to Rouse Hill Times this week about all things music, TONI & GUY and more.
A quote from the interview: “If you do things the same way you can’t expect a different result”.
I’m definitely in a new place and glad about it. Read all about it.
Huge thanks to Rouse Hill Times for the support.
Massive thanks to Dannii Minogue for blogging about my TONI & GUY ambassador news at her official Tumblr! So cool of you, really appreciate it.
Check it out.
As a big fan of the magazine for the longest time, I’m pretty stoked & quite humbled to have a TONI & GUY promo in the new issue of GQ Magazine that hit stores this week.
Wowsers. I mean, GQ…..?! That’s serious bucket list material to me.

Excited to finally share that I’ve signed on as TONI & GUY Australia’s new brand ambassador!
Massively stoked about this new partnership & I’m looking forward to great things ahead.
I guess Dannii Minogue & team having me chop the fro off on The X-Factor wasn’t so bad after all! :p

Had a chat to Hollywood Treatment this week about some of my favorite Sydney spots.
I also talk about which artist I’m feeling right now, what I love doing most in my downtime & that thing I practice in front of the mirror (you’ll never guess haha :p).
Check it out by clicking the pic above to see which favorite things we have in common ;).
Thanks Hollywood Treatment!
Beautiful morning attending Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea last week, hosted by Cancer Council ambassadors Miguel Maestre and my mate, Barry Du Bois.
Baz opened up and shared bravely about his own battle with cancer and just how significant our contribution to cancer research is.
In our lifetime, we’ll either hear ourselves or someone else say the words: “I have cancer”. It affects us all. Personally, supporting this cause means so much to me.
I’ve learned that drinking tea is a very Australian thing. That it’s what families do to gather, catch up and just connect with one another to talk about real life. That’s the significance of why we drank tea at this event too.
For more info on how you can play a part and make a difference, please visit http://www.cancer.org.au. No contribution is too small.
Had a lot of fun smashing out my performance before the Dragons VS Bulldogs game at ANZ Stadium on Mother’s Day.
With the St George Dragons Cheerleaders just before the performance.

Couldn’t be more excited to finally share this with you guys on my birthday.
Sony artist Ginny Blackmore and I recorded these duets in New Zealand, live at Parachute Studios. We poured everything into these songs, it was one of the most incredible recording experiences I’ve ever had.
Here’s All Of Me by John Legend, and Say Something by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera.
So excited to share that last week I did the entertainment reporting for The Morning Show.
When you watch the footage below and see me sitting on that couch, it’s my TV presenting debut! First time ever doing it and had so much fun.

Haha this was “awkward man handshake/lean/backslap” at its best :p.
When Larry Emdur says, “You brought it”, on live TV your first time presenting, it can’t be a bad thing! Fun times with him and Kylie Gillies on The Morning Show.

B’s Jukebox is a series where I pick your song requests at random and sing them on Insta video.
To see what last night’s request was, click the image above!
Mention in Sydney Morning Herald about Sarah Wilson’s I Quit Sugar. Was invited to do the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program, and one week in – though it’s been challenging – I feel a lot better.
Check out what it’s all about at www.iquitsugar.com and read the article below.
