What do you love about your job? I love be­ing given the op­por­tu­nity to meet so many peo­ple. I love ex­pe­ri­enc­ing pock­ets of Aus­tralia that I prob­a­bly never would have if I were a den­tist. I love the free stuff. Where was the last place you flew for busi­ness? Re­fer­ring to play­ing mu­sic as ‘busi­ness’ sells short all the self­less busi­ness­men and women out there that are slog­ging it out to make ends meet, but the short an­swer is Bris­bane (for a gig). How do you pass the time while you’re in the air? I like to imag­ine what the life story is of the per­son sit­ting in front of me. What are the cir­cum­stances that led them to that seat? Maybe they’re off to cure a hor­ri­ble dis­ease, or re­con­nect with a for­mer flame. An em­pa­thetic trav­eller is a good trav­eller. What’s your all-time favourite hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion? I’ve been around the world and I can safely say that noth­ing com­pares to the jewel of Far North Queens­land, Mag­netic Is­land. What do you never travel

with­out? A spring in my step and a song in my heart. (And two lap­tops, a Blue­tooth speaker, phone charger and a tour man­ager.) What’s your

top travel tip? Al­ways be early and pay at­ten­tion to the safety brief­ing.

Where are you head­ing next? I’ll be play­ing shows around the coun­try for the next lit­tle while, but I’d love to pop down to Antarc­tica and see what all the fuss is about.
