I’ve been spending a lot of time recently trying to learn more about myself, to focus on my strengths and recognise my weaknesses. I’m not questioning my sense of identity, that’s pretty rock solid. It’s more about realising that I can do better to communicate with others, regardless of my personality type (which is very much introverted if that wasn’t already obvious).Read More
I sat down with Benn one Friday afternoon for a cold beverage and a chat. It is always hard to tell if you will hit it off with someone you’ve either never met or only really spoken to over the internet or phone, but the conversation was flowing, probably a new record interview for me. You are going to want to check this talent out after reading this, I promise you.Read More

I first met James four years ago, in my own backyard, after asking him and Donna Arendse, also known as The Septembers, to play at my 17th birthday. It was a laid-back garden party, with their acoustic set providing the perfect soundtrack. I wasn’t the only one mesmerised by their performance; my friends and neighbours the next day asked me for their name and where they could find them. Since then, I’ve witnessed James’ talent on stage with Kilter at Field Day, then recognised his voice on the Hilltop Hoods’ track ‘Higher’, which came in at number 49 in this year’s Triple J Hottest 100.Read More
It is no secret that here at Newcastle Mirage we love good beer.
The weekend really produced the goods with the first Newcastle Beer Fest in their new location at Camp Shortland (that park opposite Nobby's Beach) and it was a brilliant weekend with some tops weather to match.
