  • Happy International Women’s Day to my Mum Marg, 88 years young. Here, she looks like she’s going to some kind of Soviet Convention but I think it was just a morning tea, or Bridge, or quite possibly, a funeral! She’s still the kindest, coolest and most forward thinking woman I know. (Apologies to Gab and Andrea) Happy International Women’s Day to all of the women that make the world a kinder place. #internationalwomensday

  • Last year Nick DiDia and I recorded our first Co-Production  for the @waax_band debut album at our Byron Bay studio @la cueva recording.  Here is the ball tearing first single called FU. It contains a bit of potty mouth but who hasn’t dropped the f bomb a few times today already? This is yet another great rock band out of Brisbane who are set to take on the world. Get on it. #pottymouth

  • G’day everyone,
Well the response to this show has been amazing. So much so that due to the overwhelming demand for tickets we have had to move this show to a larger venue which has also meant a new date. Friday March 15 @enmore_theatre.
If you bought tickets to the Factory Theatre show they are still valid for the new date and venue. If you can’t make the new show, refunds are available at point of purchase.
We are all sorry for any inconvenience caused but it’s awesome that we have the opportunity to raise more funds for our dear friend Kate.
Head to @enmore_theatre if you missed out - they are on sale now!

  • Hola Guapos. I am very pleased to be joining this bunch of louts to help out a very old friend. Kate Stewart was managing YAI when we first did shows with them, so she helped give us our first big break. Second on the bill at The Landsdowne! We then went on to work with her at the BDO and lots of other subsequent tours. I do remember her once telling me on a drive to Canberra that Powderfinger reminded her of The Band. I nearly proposed on the spot! There’s a great bunch of songwriters and people involved here so come along and help out, bring a friend. Bring a few. See you there. 
Tickets on sale now, head over to @factory_theatre for more info!

Love BF

  • Hey Legends  Happy New Year (yep a bit slow on the uptake). I just wanted to let you know that @bfandtheblackfins drummer @declankellymusic has just released an incredible new song and video for the first single off his upcoming album. Not only is he the best drummer around but he writes beautiful tunes and sings like a bird. Get on it.  Check it out at the links below.  http://open.spotify.com/track/1tOFTZ8xQnEodBFQmXssSE.  https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/carry-me-single/1434058011?ls=1

  • ‘Vast’ The Album is out now - so go to thevastproject.com to get all of the details of how to get your hands on it and to see the calibre of the artists involved. Quality tunes from from front to back and I am so proud to have been involved.  I have two new songs on the record. ‘Everything’ which was written with Tyson Mowarin and Al Pigram and ‘Ashes and Dust’ with Alex Gow. This pic catches @alexandergow of @ohmercyband fame on the ground in Cossack right before we went for a celebratory dip in the Indian Ocean after we had written Ashes & Dust. Alex is clearly part of the Victorian Fashion Avant-Garde as well as a fine songwriter, photographer and top shelf exponent of the late cut over slips. Special mention must go to @nicksheppard1960 for his tasty guitar work on this song and to @thatgalro for her sublime vocals on the track. Special thanks to the aboriginal people of the West Pilbara and especially the Ngarluma People for allowing us to spend some time on their beautiful country. #gowzerthewowzer #fullvulcha #thevastproject

  • Hey Folks,
@thevastproject album is due for release in November. Its like nothing i've ever done before and was one of the best projects I have ever been involved with. A few dozen musicians, visual artists and filmmakers hanging out in a remote coastal village called Bajinhurrba in the Pilbara, making stuff up. What could go wrong? I co-wrote two songs on the album with Alex Gow, Al Pigram and local champion Tyson Morawin. All proceeds from the album go back into the Karratha area. 
The first track off the album is a song by @pauldempseymusic written with @sally_seltmann "The Sky’s Gone Missing”

Cover art by the superstar Robert Moore.

  • We (@powderfinger_bandofficial ) are very happy to announce the release of Internationalist 20 to celebrate the Platinum Anniversary of our third album out October 12. 
The reissue of the album features the previously unreleased track Feels Like Something, which is available on iTunes and all streaming services today. The album also has a bunch of demos of album songs and a Live At The Wireless session courtesy of triple j from 1998. It will be available on CD, all digital platforms and limited edition vinyl. 
We uncovered so many great memories going through this stuff and hope you will too. We really hit a purple patch of writing and started to get comfortable experimenting with different sounds and styles. It’s the album that helped us to grow up. It was the first time we worked with Nick Didia, who went on to produce most of our records and kicked us off into lots of national and international touring. It was an incredible time for us and we are forever grateful for how well it was received. 
Stay tuned by signing up to the Powderfinger mailing list on our website for details of a mini doco about the writing and recording of the album and lots of tidbits coming up over the next couple of months.
Stream, Preorder and get all the details here: http://powderfinger.com

  • No doubt the greatest singer of all. Not just the best voice, but the best SINGER. If you don’t know it, check out Aretha’s version of The Band’s ‘The Weight’ with Duane Allman playing guitar. It’s a miracle. Also an incredible songwriter and pianist.  Enjoy your place at the table with Sam, Otis, Etta,Ella and Jimi. #RIPAretha #arethafranklin #queenofsoul #duaneallman

  • G’day everyone,
I want to let you know about 3 x very special, stripped back/acoustic shows I am playing in the beautiful Maldives in the first week of April 2019 at Kandooma Resort.
The week is aptly called “Surf Music In Paradise.” I’m playing 3 x sunset shows literally on the beach. It is family friendly, and I’m told the food, diving, surfing and accommodation is world class. Numbers are strictly limited, so get in early, it is going to be an amazing experience. Book/enquire now via link in bio

  • It is with much love and excitement that many of the Vast artists will return to the Pilbara on May 17 for a concert, film screening, gallery show and immersive workshops in a showcase of the magic they uncovered in this amazing part of the world. Tickets for @thevastproject at @redearthartsprecinct Karratha have sold out but we’d still love to see you on May 17 for a free gallery exhibition that will be taking place right through the venue from 5pm featuring works, images, ideas and quite possibly some of the visual artists themselves who were involved in @thevastproject at Cossack (Bajinhurrba) last September. #thevastproject #bajinhurrba
