Home from a long afternoon of street performing. Inspired. Currently eating cereal and listening to Eric Clapton Unplugged. Too good. Will be in again tomorrow at three o'clock. A string of new shows just announced on the website too, lovers! Come on down and spend an hour or so with us. Good times to be had. 🌿
Back from a week of palm trees, acoustic guitars and salty air. And a whole lot of writing. Busy times ahead. A couple of busking days and a gig lined-up for the week ahead. Sure would love to see you there for some folk-dancing, tambourine-shaking, belting it out music-making. So keen to get back on stage, you have no idea. Big love, folks.
Tonsillitis Crisis averted. A necessity to take some time off street performing resulted in a week of very inspiring recording, arranging and writing. Alive with inspiration. New tunes coming your way, folks. A lot to get off our chests. A side note and friendly reminder, don't abandon your authenticity for the sake of those who have forgotten the beauty of their own. You are a gift. Big love, folks. 🌙
Writing. Finished a new tune called To Make You Fall In Love today. Feels good to have this memory captured. 🥀
Latest turn the lights off and lie on your bedroom floor with your eyes closed soundtrack. This and the Rumours album. And the Tango In the Night album. Actually to be honest all of their albums. Deeply considering doing a version of The Chain as a band. What a tune, right? In a writing mood.. Well, I'm off to contemplate life, love and the universe on my bedroom floor. Good evening, folks.
On cloud nine this evening. A lot of reasons to feel excited and grateful. A glass of red is in order. A final day of street performing tomorrow at three o'clock. Followed by a full-band show on Sunday at the Botanic Gardens. Our voices are raw, our fingers are aching, our guitars have taken a good beating. Feels good, man. Feels damn good. See you soon, folks. Big love.
Everybody's estimation 'bout the fit of you and I, Resembling a trial by jury, well they can let the gavel fly. Love demands the final word. No, it cannot be deferred. When it's unconditional, Can't help fallin' where we fall. For you are my soul desire, For you are my soul desire, You're settin' my chest a'fire, For you are my soul desire. Now I got a destination, found it in your tender hands. Who's to say the love we're starting don't deserve a fighting chance? Love ain't for no boundary line. Take you as you are tonight. When it's unconditional, Can't help fallin' where we fall. For you are my soul desire, For you are my soul desire, You're settin' my chest a'fire, For you are my soul desire . If you, if you love a girl.. say. If you, if you love a boy.. say. For you are my soul desire, For you are my soul desire. Hold it in your palm, This heart of mine belongs to who I want to love. Oh if the world could acquiesce, That love should only be the lovers business. Hold it in the sky, For you I wanna write it in my eyes, And tell the world that I be yours and you be mine, And we be lightin' something true a'light. For you are my soul desire, For you are my soul desire, You're settin' my chest a'fire, For you are my soul desire. • Soul Desire A Declaration by The Fergies
People watching. Lyric writing. A woman came up mid-set and sang the entire Mrs Robinson to me, replacing the words Mrs Robinson with Singing Fergusons. Too good. What a sweetheart. Four days of street performing and a three hour gig at the end of the week ahead. The calluses on my fingers look sick. Also, friendly reminder that you don't have to be liked by everyone to be comfortable in your skin and proud to be you and just generally happy. Big love, you. 🤙🏻🌞
We have a sweet little announcement coming your way soon, folks. And there may or may not be a teaser of it on the band's Facebook. Watch this space. In the meantime, we'll be playing two shows with Canadian folk band @theeastpointers in April at the Sol Bar and Old Museum. Tickets available on their website. We'll all be folk-dancing until our feet are aching and belting it out until our voices are raw. Sure would love to see your beautiful soul there. Last but not least, a live cover of California Dreamin' just went live on the tube. We grew up on this tune and it's definitely one of our favourites to belt out on the city street each week. Everything's coming up, Milhouse! Big love, folks. 👊🏼 @woodfordfolkfestival
Never a dull moment. A kind stranger gifted a small bouquet of blooming flowers after a song. So nice. There certainly were a lot of dancing, clapping, singing folk this evening. Hilarious. And a random elderly man kissed Shani and I on the elbows mid-set which was.. probably the second weirdest busking moment so far, haha. Thank you to all of the kind souls who took a seat on the cement floor. It means the world to us when you do. An Instagram Story awaits those who could not be there physically, but were very much there in spirit. The five of us will be singing our hearts out at our little city street corner tomorrow from eleven o'clock, folks. Big love.
