It’s Time To Make Album Number 4!

I’m about to begin recording the follow up to OUTSIDERS in Los Angeles with a small ensemble of collaborators. The album will be released, with your help, in 2018.

This year I’ve been given a wonderful opportunity: I’m lucky to be among a handful of artists chosen to receive Creative Partnerships Australia’s 2017 MATCH Lab grant. This means that if I reach my fundraising goal of $10,000 it will be matched, dollar for dollar, by CPA. Your donation will be doubled!!

ALSO – the Australia Cultural Fund has DGR status, so If you donate to my project right here through the ACF, not only will you be helping me create my album, but your donation will be tax deductible.

I can’t wait to hit the studio – this album is going to sound huge!

The mighty Jim Keltner will be returning once again (as on 2012’s The Still And The Steep) to the drum chair. My longtime touring comrade Matt Nightingale will hold down the bottom end, and the great Ben Tolliday will be back to engineer.

I’ve saved up some cash to get me started on the recording, but needless to say, the project budget is much more than I have at hand. BUT… I’ve been given a gigantic opportunity in the form of the MATCH Lab grant, and I’m going to do everything that I can to reach that goal and get this album out into the world.

OUTSIDERS was praised by Rhythms Magazine as “one of the finest, most inspired Australian rock albums in quite some time. The work of a man well on top of his game.” upon its release in 2015. I’d like to stay on top of that game, and with your help, I’d like to make an even better follow up album.

When it comes down to the line, knowing that there’s a small handful of folks out there who believe in what I do is what keeps me going. I don’t take it for granted one bit – I’m grateful for our connection, and for your support.

With thanks and love,

Heath

P.S: If any funds are raised beyond the stated goal they’ll go towards making the album even bigger and better – more studio time, more songs, perhaps even more special guests!

I’m a full time singer, songwriter, performer, record producer and independent recording artist, based in the town of Candelo in rural south east NSW.

Over the past 6 1/2 years I’ve forged an international career while remaining based in my regional NSW hometown (7 hrs south of Sydney) – where as President of the Candelo Arts Society, I founded the Candelo Village Festival in 2008.

My debut album came out in 2010 and I’ve since released two more albums: “The Still And The Steep” (2012, nominated for the Australian Music Prize) and “Outsiders” (2015). Outsiders was named “One of the finest Australian rock albums in quite some time – the work of a man well on top of his game” by Rhythms magazine, and garnered rave reviews in The Australian, Daily Telegraph, Sydney Morning Herald and Canberra Times. The album was recorded with Elvis Costello’s legendary band the Imposters – the only time in their 35 year career the band have collaborated with a singer other than Costello.
