Had the pleasure of chatting to Digital Spy over in the UK about Kane’s return, life in a pandemic and my new single.
I’ve just re-released Epitome!
I say “re-released” because I wrote and recorded this EP a while back and it was produced over in Nashville, but I initially released it under a different name. And in the spirit of just wanting a fresh start after what’s been a really challenging 2020, I felt inspired to put it out there again for everyone this time (with cover art shot by Wesley Tan). Most of you would never have even heard these songs otherwise, so I’m really glad to share them with you. Available on Spotify, iTunes and all online music outlets.
I also have a brand new single on the way that I wrote and recorded during lockdown, which I’m even more excited about… Stay tuned!
It’s ARIA Week and I’m stoked to have been at Nova’s Red Room ARIA edition and the ARIA Awards 2020, presented by Mitsubishi Motors Australia, to celebrate some of the best in Aussie music.
For the Red Rooms, four amazing ARIA nominees took the stage: Ruel and Amy Shark on night #1, and Guy Sebastian and Jessica Mauboy on night #2.
As the face of Mitsubishi, I got to take people behind the scenes across the two concerts as well as the big day itself. Here are a few snaps from an incredible week
ARIA Awards 2020
My take on You & Me, originally by Disclosure feat. Eliza Doolittle and later remixed by Flume.

To celebrate Hamilton premiering on Disney Plus Australia, I’ve teamed up with Disney+ to bring you my take on one of my favourite songs from the incredible Broadway show, Alexander Hamilton. Hope you like!
You Ruin Me by The Veronicas.
My next Australasian cover is Little Things by the wonderful Jessica Mauboy. Love this song.
We’re living in days I never thought I’d experience in my lifetime. The whole world’s in crisis and we’ve all been affected in some way by this volatile pandemic.
Like many industries, mine has been hit pretty hard. And in support of the arts, I thought I’d cover a few of my favourite Australasian tunes. If you enjoy what you hear, it would mean a lot if you’d please like, comment and share.
To kick things off, here’s Fall At Your Feet by Crowded House.
With many of us at home right now having a bit more time on our hands, I’m seeing a lot of messaging on social media urging people to spend their time a certain way. To do this new thing or that new project…
I just want to sort of counter and diffuse that train of thought, and encourage anyone out there feeling overwhelmed or discouraged: please… don’t listen to those voices!
Sure, for some people it’s the perfect time for working on something they’ve wanted to for a while – the book, the song, the app, the home renovation – whatever it may be. But for others, it’s also the perfect moment to catch their breath, take care of themselves and to just be… Both sides are productive, important and valid.
Productivity isn’t measured by works.
So please don’t succumb to the expectation of others today or feel like you aren’t “doing” enough. Especially in a time like this, what matters most of all is doing what’s best for you.
Continuing the theme of new things… You’re looking at Mitsubishi Australia’s newest ambassador!
Part of the world’s largest leading automative alliance, I’m excited to partner with a brand that combines safety, comfort and style so effortlessly.
Time to celebrate!
New year, new things… Stoked to announce I’ve signed on as an ambassador for Virgin Active Australia!
Especially honoured to partner with a global brand that was founded by someone I’ve looked up to for so long, Sir Richard Branson.
Excited to be on board, here’s to lots more new adventures.
Ned paying Kane a visit, in search of answers…
2020, here’s lookin at you!
I had the best, most special Christmas.
Happy holidays and big love to all as you head into the new decade! ♡
