September - 'We're alright, it's just Road Wear'

A new month - a new tune!  My September single Road Wear is a personal reflection on the ageing process shared by both player and instrument .

In a recent photo shoot, the photographer had me hold my rather scratched, well-worn acoustic guitar next to my face, and the lighting was such that all the scars and marks of age were revealed in all their glory - on the guitar, as well as my face! 

This became the subject of a conversation I had with fellow Brisbane songsmith Mark Cryle, who went on to develop the idea of Road Wear

This recent photo was bookended with a very old photo I have of me at age 11 - with my first guitar - working on ‘Moonshadow’, as described in the second verse.
