Thank You Captain Brian and Vale MV Port Princess

Dear Lovely Ones,

A career so fortunate always has so many to thank,  and no matter what stage you are in there is always time to do so.  Tragically, I am doing this after a most awful event these past 24 hours.  For those who have been on the Port River Princess, it's been a great way to relax and see the Dolphins up and down the Port River.  Captain Brian and Tammy, plus their wonderful team, carried out each trip as enthusiastically as if it was their first one ever.  I was very fortunate to not only play a number of shows on the top deck, but also to be a passenger on a lunchtime cruise where we got to see Dolphins playing with the tug boats up and down the river.

A very proud Captain is Brian, and I loved the excitement in his voice over the PA when he sited a Dolphin for us.  Great memories and musical moments on board.

Below is the acoustic set up for our gigs we did for the riverboat and Platinum Event Agency

Sadly the vessel sank last night, on its way to a new home in Victoria.  Thank goodness Captain Brian and crew are safe but I feel that emotions will be running high at the moment.  Perhaps the old girl didn't want to move to a new home.  Maybe she felt her time was up.  We will never know, but I know that I am so glad I got to experience her beauty on the water.

I had THE BEST time when I played the 4 shows on here.  Beautiful river, great vessel and crew and wonderful passengers too.  I am very sad that the vessel is gone, yet I'm so grateful that I was fortunate enough to take my music on board.  Many thanks to Captain Brian and team and I hope we will all catch up one day soon.

lots of love

Susan Lily Update - May 2017

Dear Lovely Ones,

After a beautiful break up in FNQ with my darling man and my sista from another mista, it's back to the grindstone to earn the funding to keep my recording schedule on track.

I had a great time up north and got to play again with Michelle Walker at our favourite venue, The Bingil Bay Cafe.  Nestled amongst the coastal rainforests this gorgeous cafe boasts a wonderful relaxed atmosphere, friendly service and, quality dining.

Oh, and I have a few great gigs coming up this week and here are the posters for them.

Saturday 20th May we will be on stage FULL BAND at 5 pm

Did I tell you I was fortunate enough to be a successful grant applicant for this project?  The wonderful team at Arts SA granted me about 30% of the final costs to help me get started on this.  So I've begun the process and at this point Anthony Stewart and I have arranged the tracks, recorded guide vocals, and built the songs up with guitar and bass.  From here the files have been passed on to Brad Bergen who will create drum tracks that will compliment what is already there and enhance the songs just that little bit more.

When we have more details regarding this project, I will let you all know.  Happy listening gang! I hope to see some Adelaidians out tonight, Friday or saturday to see live music!!
