This album is a compilation of some of my favourite moments on stage over the years.

These poems were written for the stage. The words often live and breathe their fullest truths alongside musicians in the company of a loving audience, as we all find our way through the mystery of being human together.

The album is arranged as a complete journey, in the order that we might perform these poems in a single live gig. Venturing through the mountains of the political-ecological landscape holding onto our hats and hearts... and eventually nestling on into the caverns, streams and oceanic firesides of soul.
