New video: Urthboy - The Arrow
Created by Dom Aldis, who drew 2700 illustrations to make this beautiful hand-drawn video. The Arrow features the silky vocals of Timberwolf and was produced by Nic Martin and Styalz Fuego. It's an ode to standing still in the relentless pursuit of a making music and living out your purpose.
Second Heartbear Tour sell out!
Thanks for making this one of the best tours I've ever done. If not for a handful of tix in Canberra, we sold every single ticket on the tour - something like 98% soldout. Crazy. It was so much fun touring with L-FRESH The LION and OKENYO, as well as my incredible band made up of Jayteehazard, Ev Jones, Claire Nakazawa and Meklit Kibret. Also many thanks to Bertie Blackman, Jane Tyrrell, Kira Puru, B Wise and Montaigne for guesting with us. HUGE.
New video for Daughter of the Light
Broken Yellow, the production house that did the Long Loud Hours video have created the clip for Daughter of the Light. If you haven't heard it, this is a tribute to my mum, and mums everywhere - all their sacrifices they make for us. Kira Puru smashes the chorus and it was produced by Hermitude and Pip Norman.
