Southern Light – Album Release

So here in my hands is a vinyl copy of the NEW Sal Kimber album. This is the first time I’ve ever been on vinyl so I’m pretty excited. The album sounds lush and I’m proud to be a part of this project.

We have just started our SOUTHERN SUMMER HALLS TOUR w/ John Flanagan (who also just released a new album) and we are having a ball. We will be taking in gorgeous country halls all around Vic, before we fly to WA to play Fremantle/Margaret River and Nannup Music Festival.

Purchase the album here through Vitamin Records:
