It’s a great feeling getting to smash your production out through a massive sound system and that’s what happened at the Hi-Fi in Melbourne CBD last night. Hailey Cramer and myself along with our musical compadres Louisa Rankin, Ginger Van-Es on vocals and Jarrod McClusky on multi-kit percussion played a killer show at AWME on a great bill which included Hiatus Kaiyote, Myele Manzanza and Rita Satch.

Playing with these guys feels so good and Hailey’s combination of laid back charm on stage and flawless vocal delivery was really felt by the audience and Glenn Waller from the Music who noted:

“…Flanked by two singers in black, Hailey Cramer is eye catching in a pink dress with mock molten gold on the shoulders. “Good evening ladies and gentlemen,” she announces. “You may fill the space in front of you. That’s for people. And that’s you.” People now descend into the pit and get their boogie on. We lap up her recent single Liquid Confidence and Cramer’s charm is in her laidback handling of the crowd, with banter including calls such as, “We’re just gonna smash them out for ya,” and, “ Can you feel that bass in your bowels?” cracking us up…”

Looking forward to getting back in the studio with Hailey to push out some new tunes and get this long player happening for 2015. Big ups to the mighty Michelle Grace Hunder for capturing the moment on camera!
