Plaster Pony

Hello friends

I would like you to meet my new studio buddy. I painted him at  my friend’s birthday party recently and he’s been keeping me company.

I want to name him something cute but i want to name all things Frank for some reason. Perhaps you could help me come up with a more suited name?

This last weeks have been very productive and exciting because we not only got to squelch, buzz, strum, and hum around my home studio, we also got to clank and clop around a bit at Airlock Studios in Samford. I got to spend my birthday playing a baby grand piano, a Wurlitzer and a Hammond with a Leslie there. I felt like a very lucky girl.

There is lots of work left to do and I will post more photos very soon. I will also reveal some very special guests as the album gets a little closer to being finished.
I just spent the weekend in Sydney and got to watch a few Vivid shows at the Opera House. Janelle Monae and band were incredible. I also went to see my label mates Seekae play with an 8-piece string section. Very impressive and inspiring. Adjectives starting with ‘I’ seem to be what I use to describe Vivid shows. But I really mean it :)
Here is a shitty photo I took of the Seekae show —–>
Until next time
Lots of love

Hello there!

I was planning to keep this blog on a regular basis; however, nothing interesting was happening that seemed entirely blog-worthy. I have spent the last year working, writing songs, playing shows, collecting some more synthesizers, and sewing little instruments.

I also got to play at the Opera House with a bunch of legends for Nick Zinner’s 41 strings (IIII) and went to Germany and wrote another song in my mother tongue. Keeping busy! (some might say – over-committing). BUT NOW I have officially started recording my second album! I have spent the last two weeks in Melbourne working with my brother Mirko on songs, recording drums, bass, and guitar until our fingers (almost) bled. Here are some photos:

Very excited to have real drums on the album. Also very excited that Mirko is playing them.

Seja and synthesizers

Mirko playing some bass

Seja plays electric

Seja plays acoustic – note cross-legged guitar stance and scrutinising guitar face is the same in each photo.

Fingers after a week of playing guitar. ouch!

MIDI miasma

Then Ben Ely played some bass on the album and it was amazing.

More photos to come soon. We have lots more work to do but I am very much looking forward to sharing it with you all soon!
