Holy Smokes! What a great start to the year! So proud to be taking home a Golden Guitar for QANTASLINK New Talent of the Year! We performed Land of Gold in front of a few thousand people and were petrified we would stuff it up but we pulled it off! We'll post the youtube link as soon as it becomes available.
Ummm... Holy Hell! We just got nominated for an ARIA!
WE had a HUGE time at our first ever Gympie Music Muster this year with two hilariously fun and wild full band shows each night which featured totem tennis, interpretive and ribbon dances, old songs and new songs! We also took part in a songwriters round with Sara Storer and Greg Storer and also was part of the Collaboration show for the finale of the festival. check out some images below.
Check out the feature in the Winter Edition of GRAZIHER Magazine, which is in Newsagents now! Fanny talks about life on the road, her connections with Rural Australia and whats coming up next for the year!
