I'm so excited to have the chance to be on stage at all these amazing gatherings.  And, with the showing of Born to Die and Mother and Child at August's Footprints Film Festival, plus the open mics at the Hawai'i Songwriting Festival earlier this month, that makes 6 festivals in just a few months... what a time it's been.  I can't wait to be finished my studies (by the end of November) so I can really amp things up next year!

Finally - congratulations to everyone involved in organising these festivals - it takes a HUGE amount of effort to run something this type of event and you all do it briliantly.

 

 

 
Mother and Child - Dairy's inherent Despair
Apr 13 2017

Mother and Child is the new single for MC Pony.

 
Born to Die - a brand new single
Mar 10 2017

I am so excited to announce that there is another MC Pony release on the way.

"Born to Die" is an evocative 'first-person' account of a broiler chicken's sad existence. Co-written with fellow Sydney-sider Robert Pearce, and featuring Tayberry as guest vocal artist, we hope this track will help spread a greater awareness to the reality of 'broiler farming'.

The single will be released officially late next week but you can already give it a spin on YouTube or Facebook.

 

 
The Icing on my Cake
Feb 14 2017


Icing_on_my_Cake_thumbnailI wrote a love song over half a decade ago called “The Icing on my Cake”. It’s a sweet little ditty (pardon the pun!!) that doesn’t fit for MC Pony and also isn’t ‘commercial’ enough to use for pitching to other artists. But I still wanted to share it somehow, and with today being Valentine’s Day it seemed appropriate timing to release this particular track into the world.

Enormous thanks to Kristin Lajeunesse of Will Travel for Vegan Food for supplying so many shots of various delicious vegan desserts she has encountered in her travels + editing this all together! Thanks also to an anonymous friend for lending me her amazing vocals. :)

 

 

 
Happy Veganniversary - MC Pony's first official single!
Aug 30 2015

Happy_Veganniversary_release_promo_imageAre you vegan? This is a song for you to celebrate the anniversary of the date you went vegan! If you don't know the date, how about picking 1st November, World Vegan Day, and playing it for yourself then? This also gives you another great excuse to eat some vegan cake!

If you're not vegan, you probably still know someone who is, so why not send them the link (http://bit.ly/HappyVeganniversary) to bring a smile to their face!

 

 
2014 dawns with MC Pony in da House!
Jan 01 2014

Happy New Year! Let's start with a little bit of fun... here is the first ever MC Pony music video – the live performance of “Pony in da House” at Sydney's 2013 Cruelty Free Festival. After several years of having to say “sorry, there's nothing up online yet” when people ask about MC Pony's music, I can finally change my reply to “check this out!” :)

 
Mardi Gras, ‘battery hens’, and intersections of oppressions
Sep 03 2011

Supporting queer rights and animal rights while dancing in a yellow tutu?  I'm in! 

Also, the chance to hear my song "Paradigm Shift" - just try getting the chorus out of your head afterwards... :)
