The Arias 2008

Hi everyone.

This past week has been a big one. 

I was so excited to be invited to the Aria awards. Wow what an amazing night that was. 
I could go on forever about it so I'm going to try & keep it short.

I went with Claire & we sat at the EMI publishing table. It was my first time to The Arias. I didn't know what to expect. I met so many great people. The night went way too quick.

The performances were great & the whole thing was so exciting. 

I wrote some songs with Mark Sholtez about a week before so it was great to be able to sit with him & his partner Melita.

Here are some photo's

Lisa, Jess & I 

This is where we sat, couldn't believe it...... amazing seats.

Below is the talented Mark Sholtez & his partner Melita

The Presets were fantastic

After the Arias had finished we all got onto one of the Aria buses & headed to the after party at the Ivy. By then my feet were killing me but my shoes still looked hot...ha

We were served apple martinis when we arrived ... (yum), looking around the room it all started to sink in..... how amazing the night was.

My Amazing last few weeks

I dont know where to start? Its been a while between blogs so I will keep it short.

I have had an amazing few weeks. I went to Sydney a few times to do some co-writing & met the most amazing people.

My manager Tim and his partner Claire were nice enough to let me crash at their house in Bondi so everything was pretty close by.

The first week I was there I met up & wrote with Melanie Horsnell, Wons Phreely, Josh Schuberth, Cindy Ryan & Jake Grigg.
Wow... was that an amazing first week, they were all so lovely & very talented. We ended up with some great songs.

Here are some photos below of some of my week.

This is Wons, ...check out

Jake & I had a great day & had heaps of space for our crap as you can see.

I don't have any photos of Josh or Melanie but visit their myspace & websites.

The next Sydney trip ...........

was a week later & I was lucky enough to write with Cindy, Melanie & Jake again. I also wrote with McGowan Southworth ( which was great cause I knew he was really busy.

It's been an amazing few weeks, I worked with some great artists, & I just feel so lucky.

I can't wait for my next trip.
