I'm realeasing my latest single, OpportuniTea at Kappy's Tea & Coffee Merchants in the city. Come along on Saturday afternoon 9th December, 3-6pm to 1/22 Compton Street, Adelaide. I look forward to introducing you to this amazing place and also meeting some of Simon's regular customers!
OpportuniTea is about making the most of life's simpliciTea and tranquliTea while developing authenticiTea and vulnerabiliTea. By drawing on the support of CommuniTea, one can foster responsibiliTea while maintaing a balance between individualiTea and UniTea
The event will be an afternoon of tea and coffee tastings with live music from myself and KC Guy.
You can purchase your very own sachet of OpportuniTea which will include your download to the song.
I'm very excited about this song being released. It has beautiful ingredients including mandolin, cello, lush harmonies, driving bass and drums and my favourite thing in music: a wikid half time feel!

White Ribbon is the world’s largest movement of men and boys working to end men’s violence against women and girls, promote gender equality, healthy relationships and a new vision of masculinity.
White Ribbon aims to create an Australian society in which all women can live in safety, free from violence and abuse.
White Ribbon works through a primary prevention approach understanding that men are central to achieving the social change necessary to prevent men’s violence against women. We engage men to stand up, speak out and act to influence the actions of some men and demand change. Through education, awareness-raising and creative campaigns, preventative programs and partnerships, we are empowering communities and men to be part of this social change.
