Bio

I like telling little stories. A healthy dose of Paul Kelly has only ever done anyone good. I want to take the long bus trips, and the taxi rides of my little world and show people why I think those funny little moments are the most important parts of our big and bold lives.
My rockstar uncle taught me Space Oddity when I was 12 and it taught me that oddness is great and that maybe, a space obsessed explorer has something important to share.
I live in New York, I grew up in Sydney and I study Maths and Physics and I have lots of things that I've seen that I'd like to tell. I've been working with Benjamin McCarthy (Gordi, nyck, Kate Miller-Heidke) through some bits of old tape and we've got a few songs we'd like to share with you.

Alex's debut blew everyone away but I'm more so impressed by the strength of this follow up. Lots of hype around Alex right now but she's certainly got the substance to match.

The last few months have been a whirlwind for you and you get that frenetic energy in this song. It's so bloody earnest, humble and endearing, with astute storytelling that puts you there in the moment. I think we all feel like proud mums right now. Go touch the stars girl.

A hustling, bustling gem that pairs those traditional strummy songwriter instincts with some classy, inventive flourishes. With two for two on the belt, expecting to see this Astronaut's career skyrocket soon enough.
