Another Rude Millennial, by Brooke Tunbridge by Brooke Tunbridge

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.

16,043 km w/ James Chatburn, By Brooke Tunbridge by Brooke Tunbridge

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.

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.
