Answers was filmed on the east coast of Australia, while traveling from Brisbane to Melbourne, and in the city of Melbourne. It incorporates many varied scenic locations and contrasts them with urban city scenes to comment on the differences between nature and city. The track itself reflects this idea as it discusses concepts about uncertainty with your current position. It also captures a moment in my life as I made the transition from living/working on an isolated kangaroo sanctuary in far northern Australia to moving to the busy city of Melbourne.
About the upcoming album: The EP “Answers” will be released on Feb 27, 2016. It is a 4-track EP, with “Answers” being the title track. It is my second EP, and builds on the first one (which was entitled “Monique Angele” and released in early 2014) by incorporating thick harmonic lines and a wider range of instrumental accompaniment while still maintaining a backbone of piano and vocals. It was recorded in Sydney, Australia and mixed while living/working on an isolated kangaroo sanctuary in far northern Australia. It deals with themes of uncertainty and frustration, but also with redemption and finally contentedness. The album release show is March 2nd at Grumpy’s, 125 Smith Street, in Melbourne, Australia.
