Into The Night tour heading to WA this weekend!

image description

Hey folks,

Massive thank you to everyone out there who braved the snow and wind and rain to come and see me play in Canberra and Sydney over the weekend! Both shows were a stack of fun, I hope you all enjoyed them. I would also like to thank Virgin for sending my pedal case back to Canberra after landing in Sydney, rendering me without a tuner, leads and harmonicas! Fortunately a mad dash to Josh Pyke’s house saved the day and I was able to cobble together what I needed to be able to play the show the way I intended it to be performed! Sydney was however the first time I have used my mobile phone tuner app on stage.

This weekend I’m heading over to old home state Western Australia with shows on Friday night at the Indian Ocean Hotel in Scarborough and Saturday night at The Aardvark, (which is the basement of the Norfolk Hotel) in Fremantle. Ruby Gill will be accompanying me on both shows plus there will also be two opening acts, Josiah Bloor in Scarborough and Timothy Nelson in Freo. Tickets to both shows are available here.

See you there!



“Into the Night” solo tour starts in a little over ONE WEEK!!

Hey folks,

So I woke up this morning and it suddenly dawned on me…my “Into the Night” solo tour starts in a little over ONE WEEK! That means I have only a matter of days to work out what new songs I’m going to have a go at. So I headed down to the garage and started practicing. Here’s a little snippet.

Tickets to most shows are still available, although Sydney has sold out. The amazing Ruby Gill will be joining me at all shows, (except Sydney) and I have also recently announced a bunch of openers for particular shows.

In Perth at the Indian Ocean Hotel the night will kick off with Josiah Bloor. At the Sound Lounge on the Gold Coast we will be joined by Kelsey Berrington. In Tasmania at both the Forth Pub and Republic Bar in Hobart we shall be joined by Daniel J Townsend.

It’s going to be a wonderful tour, I can’t wait to see you all there! Grab your ticket now here

Heya folks,

I know that I announced recently that my Into the Night solo tour through August & September would be my last shows for a while but an opportunity too good to refuse has arisen!

I am excited to announce that I will be joining Eskimo Joe and WASO for this one off special show at Kings Park in PERTH on SUNDAY DECEMBER 1ST!

This show gives me the opportunity to re-unite with Clio Renner, (keys) and Esther Henderson, (violin), in my home town for the first time since last years Full Circle tour came to an end. Anyone who came to one of those shows will know how much I loved it and hoped to get the chance to do it again some day and now that day has a date! The gardens of Kings Park on the first day of summer in WA will make the perfect setting.

Tickets go on sale on MONDAY JUNE 24TH at 9AM WST

Into The Night tour announced!!

Hello there friends!

It is with great excitement that I can announce my “Into the Night” solo tour travelling around Australia in August and September of 2019!

Since releasing my compilation album “Full Circle” last year, I have had a wonderful time playing shows in a trio with piano and violin, with a 5 piece band as well as on my lonesome with my acoustic guitar, playing and celebrating something that started 16 years and 5 studio albums ago back in a little suburban sun room in 2003. It has been important to me to wrap up the past, reflect a little, enjoy it and then move forward on to something new.

But now I feel like it is time for me to disappear for a while.

There will be more music, I can assure you of that. I am always writing and I am looking forward to road testing some new material over the course of this run of shows.

However, after this little rendezvous I shall, like the shadowy man of mystery I am, be disappearing “in to the night” and you won’t be seeing or hearing from me again until I have something brand new and super exciting to offer.

So I do sincerely hope you can join me for this closing of a chapter, this turning of a page, this step in to the beyond.

I shall be playing songs old and new and taking requests. I’d love the chance to say thank you and to say to you my most heartfelt, not “bye” but “see you in the future”.

Get your tickets now here while they're still available

Hey there folks!

  So there is a huge amount of activity at Bob Evans HQ right now, with a heap of shows and other special treats all being busily planned and prepared.  So I thought it best that I write to you all once more, my loyal brethren, so you have all the most up to date information that you need!

  First up, I am super excited to announce that I will be playing a very special charity event in my home town of Fremantle, WA on Thursday March 28th.  The show is called Groundswell and 100% of the ticket sales will go directly to Support Act, a charity that supports members of the music industry in times of crisis, as well as to St Pats Community Support Centre in Fremantle.  I will be performing in special duo mode, with my dear friend Ben Witt on electric guitar, who is practically coming straight from the airport after touring Europe and the USA with Meg Mac.  Tickets are limited so please come and join me for what will be a really special night.

Unfortunately as a consequence of this I have made the very difficult decision to cancel my show at The Publican in Mornington on March 28th.  This is a decision that was exceptionally hard to make as I’m proud of my track record over the last 20+ years of not cancelling shows but I will look at re scheduling another show for later in the year for those of you who were planning on coming along.  Please go to your place of purchase for a full refund and accept my sincere apologies. 

  All the other shows on my upcoming Full Circle solo tour will be unaffected by this change of plans and are going full steam ahead!  The tour kicks off NEXT WEEK in NSW, with Narrabeen RSL on THURSDAY MARCH 14th, 48 Watt St in Newcastle on FRIDAY MARCH 15th and the Heritage Hotel in Bulli on SATURDAY MARCH 16th.  After that I will be at Sooki Lounge in Belgrave on FRIDAY MARCH 29th and Karova Lounge in Ballarat on SATURDAY MARCH 30th. I will be playing all the hits and misses off last years Full Circle (Best of) album as well as conducting a song raffle giving you a chance to request any Bob Evans song you like if your number gets called.  Tickets to all shows are selling fast and can be purchased here

  On SATURDAY APRIL 6th I will be playing a special fundraiser for Motor Neuron Disease at the incredible Caves House in Yallingup, down South of WA.  This is going to be a massive night.  All the details and tickets are here

  Don’t forget I am also touring the country in support of The Whitlams through May, June and July! 

  Finally, I announced late last week the massive news that my 2006 album “Suburban Songbook” will be released for the first time ever as a limited edition coloured vinyl in conjunction with Record Store Day on April 13th.  I am so incredibly thrilled that this album which means so much to me will finally be getting the vinyl treatment.  It sounds beautiful.  I am organising some live instore performances around Melbourne to celebrate on Record Store Day and will announce details as soon as they are confirmed.

  PHEW!  I think that’s everything!  I hope you can make it to a show over the next few months.

Hey WA folks,

All the event details and ticket info is here image description


Hey folks,

I have some really exciting news for you today!

In conjunction with Record Store Day on Saturday April 13th, my 2006 album “Suburban Songbook” will be released on vinyl for the first time ever!

You guys know the importance of this record for me. I recorded it in Nashville with Brad Jones after 2 years of demoing it in the sunroom of my Perth home. The following year the first single released from it, “Don’t You Think it’s Time?” became the biggest song of my career to date and the album ended up going Gold in Australia, as well as allowing me to tour in the UK, US, Spain and South Africa. “Suburban Songbook” is a watershed album that represents a turning point in my life, where my career as a musician and my personal life intertwined and set me off on a brand new course. I always imagined this album and it’s cover art in the form of a traditional vinyl release, so you can probably imagine how proud I am to finally see it come to life all of these years later!

The vinyl release of “Suburban Songbook” comes in translucent Sunny Yellow, in homage to all of those Western Australian afternoons spent conceiving the record alone in the back sun room of my house. It’s a solid 180 gram, nice and heavy on the turntable and sounds fantastic.

For those who are unable to make it to a record store on Saturday April 13th, any remaining copies will be available to purchase from my website or at my shows until stock runs out.

Hiya Folks,

So I’ve been scratching around the office looking for live photographs of yours truly taken at Bob Evans gigs and it appears that after playing live for 20 years I have surprisingly few! I would love to put together a bit of a digital album of pics from 1998 to the present BUT I NEED YOUR HELP!

So here’s what I’m going to ask. If you have photos that you’ve taken at any Bob Evans show from any time over the last twenty years that you would be happy to share with myself and everyone else who follows me, could you please post them to my facebook site.

As an incentive to help me out with this little project I will giveaway 1 double pass to each of my 6 upcoming solo shows in March throughout NSW and Victoria. So please include the town or venue name along with the photograph to go in to the running to win a double pass to one of my Full Circle solo shows:

14 March - Narrabeen RSL, Narrabeen NSW

15 March - 48 Watt St, Newcastle NSW

16 March - Heritage Hotel, Bulli NSW

28 March - The Publican, Mornington VIC

29 March - Sooki Lounge, Belgrave VIC

30 March - Karova Lounge, Ballarat VIC

For those living outside of NSW and Victoria, please include the town in which you live and I will choose some winners that I can offer a prize to later in the year when I pass through your corner of Australia.



Don’t forget my best of album “Full Circle” that this tour has been showcasing is out now (buy here) and available digitally as well as on CD and vinyl. The CD and digital versions come with a bonus album of cover recordings I’ve done over the last 13 years. image description
