pe­ter gar­rett

“He doesn’t do duets very of­ten and he’s a very for­mi­da­ble fig­ure. It was hard to find a song we could do to­gether. To his credit he went through my whole cat­a­logue and chose one. I’m hop­ing he’ll do some of his crazy danc­ing. Pete is much more sub­dued when he’s solo, I’m pre­pared for both — get­ting my eye poked out or him be­ing (calm). It’s gonna be fas­ci­nat­ing to see what sort of chem­istry we have on stage.”

kasey cham­bers

“I lis­tened to Kasey Cham­bers’ The Cap­tain when I was in high school and she was a huge in­flu­ence. I’ve picked one of my more coun­try num­bers. I have an Aussie twang, she has a more Amer­i­can twang, I think our twangs will com­ple­ment each other.”

dan sul­tan

“Dan Sul­tan ac­tu­ally sang a Slim Dusty num­ber with me once and I cov­ered Old Fitzroy.

I think he’s re­ally in­cred­i­ble and his lat­est al­bum, Killer, is fan­tas­tic.”

gretta ray

“She‘s amaz­ing. She’s gonna go far that girl. She’s an in­cred­i­ble song­writer. A pro­ducer sent me a cou­ple of her demos and said ‘Check this girl out’ and I for­warded them on to my man­ager. I love Drive and, yeah, her newer one Ra­dio Si­lence. We’re gonna do a re­ally big num­ber to­gether.”

ben abra­ham

“Ben Abra­ham is a good friend of mine and he has one of the best voices in the coun­try. He’s got quite fa­mous for writ­ing some of Ke­sha’s hits. He’s an in­cred­i­ble song­writer. We recorded a new song that’s go­ing on my best-of al­bum called Run So Fast. It’s a real slow, picky, acous­tic num­ber.”
