It's not always been this way, I hated Cairns when I first arrived, but I wasn't in the best of shape at the time.
I borrowed a bass and walked into a place in town called 12 Bar Blue. I ended up playing with almost everyone that night, swapped some phone numbers and made some friends. I put an ad in one of the music shops; they laughed when they saw it. I must have looked dejected, but the manager said: "Chris, you have no idea. Your phone isn't going to stop." The first call was from Leanne Tennant, who I've worked with ever since, and has her own page on this site.
If I can turn my life around anyone can. In three years my life has changed completely. I'm now looking forward to hearing the results of a new album with Leanne, where I've fulfilled an ambition to play on a song with Bill Chambers, and Gordon and I have scored gigs in Tamworth with Wanita in January. Christmas is coming, and I'm spending it with three of my four children.
