--- 2007 MELBOURNE TO CANBERRA TOUR

James had just released his debut EP One in late 2006 and this was one of the tours he played music from that CD. He teamed up with drummer Dylan Redman and drove from Melbourne and played at Jindabyne, Bombala, Cooma and 2 shows in Canberra.

The tour first started with a church booking James in Bombala. James asked if they knew any other churches that maybe interested in him visiting, The tour ended up having 5 shows over 4 days.

Memorable moments was being surprised that snow slopes where so close to where they played in Jindabyne. 

In Bombala locals knew who we where when we arrived. James was filling up petrol and the owner said you are the guy playing a gig here. They had signs all around the town and placed adds in the local newspaper. 

James use to live in Canberra and was able to perform at his old childhood church. Many people purchased his CD saying I remember you when you where a boy.
