Being named as 'Artist Of The Year' by Folk Alliance Australia in 2015, awarded the prestigious APRA AMCOS 'Emily Burrows Award' and 'Best Acoustic Act' at Fowler's Live Awards are only a few of his notable achievements, along with a long list of national and international festival performances.

Growing up amongst the Australian folk festival circuit with his family and listening to the likes of Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Neil Young and Paul Kelly Kaurna began to write and perform songs on streets all over Australia and Europe.

Track Name: Selling Dreams
Selling Dreams
Everyday you’d fall for someone or something, living in Berlin
this city got my ears ringing the same old tune
just don’t ask me what school that I went to
We always tremble alone, we move together
never settle on sacred ground
they don’t see what I see now
You're selling dreams
and walking paths
kissing cowboys
buying houses that you know will fall apart
viewing screens and drawing graphs
between romance and betrayal from your past
building houses that will one day fall apart
Listen to the stupid things they say like
it's either right or wrong, it's only black or white
I can’t keep no promises, but I won't tell lies
I'll promise you anything, for tonight
We always tremble alone, but we move together
never settle on sacred ground
they don’t see what I see now
You're selling dreams
and walking paths
kissing cowboys
buying houses that you know will fall apart
viewing screens and drawing graphs
between romance and betrayal from your past
building houses that will one day fall apart
Track Name: It Aint Easy For Either Of Us
It Ain’t Easy For Easy of Us
Somewhere in the city
in a nowhere part of town
I pictured your shadow
beside me on the ground
give you time, get loneliness
this ain’t easy for either of us now
It ain’t easy for either of us now
Somewhere from the other side
you call my name
you’re wanting answers
I guess I want the same
found old letters that you wrote
they don’t make it easier
but you got letters of your own
It ain’t easy for either of us now
It ain’t easy for either of us now
Somewhere in the future
at the end of the show
I don’t want you thinking
that I didn’t know
when the lights go out
and the stage in clean
I hope you know that I know
you were aching just like me
It ain’t easy for either of us now
It ain’t easy for either of us now
It ain’t easy, It ain’t easy, It ain’t easy
It ain’t easy for either of us now
Track Name: East Side
East Side
Hannah and Krissy, Ally and Chloe
always covered in perfume fumes
Elly and Julie, hanging with the rich boys
in polo shirts and jeans so blue
Lucy and Charlotte, Sally and Stacy
I only ever saw from a far
Sophie & Clancy
they never stopped dancing
around that champagne bar
You were born on the east side honey
I could never change that
You were born on the east side honey
It's a matter of fact
Lily and Laura, Kelly was boring
never read much philosophy
Holly and Helen, Anna and Abby
and the one who wore sequins
I never did remember her name
Lauren and Maddy, were almost sisters
they lived on the same avenue
Amy and Eleanor
were always on the east end
acting all righteous
like there so much better than you
You were born on the east side honey
I could never change that
You were born on the east side honey
spending all of daddy's pay cheques
You were born on the east side honey
I could never change that
You were born on the East Side Honey
It's a matter of fact
You could be laughing
well, I wouldn't care
fixed up in fashion
just to watch them stop & stare
Track Name: I´ll Never Know Your Name
I’ll Never Know Your Name
Buried my lover in the spring street station
hailing from the southern states
met in the warmth of the subway car
I forgot to get off the train
talking to much we got carried away
nothing could have pulled you back
‘cause you’re walking out now to the fashion week crowds
where they tell you all the things that you lack
so you spend more money
I’ll never know your name
When I was a boy papa played cassettes
and he only wore second hand shoes
there was a speaker in the living room
singing don’t think twice to you
I’m not the kind of guy to be polite
if I really don’t need to
when you living your life as a vagabond
there’s some people that you have to choose
for now I’m tangled up in you
I’ll never know your name
I remember eyes light up like Santa Monica Pier
I’ll never know your name
My My My
Times like these they come like California rain
I’ll never know your name
Having something to prove can’t take so long
when you finally make the choice to be alone
Living your life walking down a oneway road
'cause you can't buy your courage from the grocery store
I’ll never know your name
I remember eyes so bright
I’ll never know your name
My My My
Times like these they come like California rain
I’ll never know your name
I’ll never know your name
I remember eyes, I remember eyes
I’ll never know your name
My My My
Times like these, oh times like these
Track Name: Blood & Wine
Blood & Wine
I fell off the train with a hole in my head
a dead folk musician and a dry bottle of red
there’s a drunk on the street singing nursery rhymes
he got the missiles, but the man can hardly stand
he gonna let ‘em fly tonight
as a cocktail of blood and wine pours down my cheeks
My life is like an empty parking lot
its made to be fulfilled
but you just can’t find your spot
Much like a country counter shop
take what you can get
but it’s never what you want
A country singer shouts to those who only like the disco
the bartenders in the bathroom sniffing on snow white
while the dogs keep on barking at the nightclub door
They’re howling for forgiveness, they only want forgiveness
I hate the way these places never let you leave
I wind up every night beside a guy who looks like Jesus Christ
My life is like an empty parking lot
its made to be fulfilled
but you just can’t find your spot
Much like a country counter shop
take what you can get
but it’s never what you want
No one gave you all the things you ever wanted
your siblings always got their way, didn’t they
no one gave a damn about your prestige college
while you were hoping that they would some day
My life is like an empty parking lot
its made to be fulfilled
but you just can’t find your spot
Much like a country counter shop
take what you can get
but it’s never what you want
Track Name: Yours For Life
Yours For Life
I fell alone
from a sky no longer fit to call a home
for a man who wonders how imagination
leads to his desires
you need not to view upon fields of stars forever
to see them changing
So if you see me tumbling, tiresome
still alive with tears for wiping
shake them off
and if you hear me fumbling, frightened
from this day forward I’m yours for life
we’ll make it up
you can bathe me in whatever you got
I went to hold you
just as I held them away
from streaming down my weary face
you dressed in lace I hardly recognised you
walking down, grandmothers gown
it was hanging from your precious shoulders
So if you see me tumbling, tiresome
still alive with tears for wiping
shake them off
and if you feel me fumbling, frightened
from this day forward I’m yours for life
we’ll make it up
you can bathe me in whatever you got
So if you see me tumbling, tiresome
still alive with tears for wiping
shake them off
and if you feel me fumbling, frightened
from this day forward I’m yours for life
we’ll make it up
you can bathe me in whatever you got
while your picture sits a shrine upon my wall
Track Name: Pavlova
Pavlova
Pine needles perfume hanging in the air
well I took a tram to the city square
decorations line the streets
chalk dust underneath my feet
I walked through chinatown alone
The televisions cheering from the other room
I ran inside to see who bowled who
while the uncles where playing darts
I got talking to the aunts
I don't know how but I guess they knew
Don't cancel christmas this year
I'm saying I need you here
when wish list morning comes
and all the carols have been sung
I know there's things I'd have done differently
they soon become my new years resolutions
all I feel is dissolution
I want my christmas red and green and with you
don't make it blue
Red and white of a candy cane
thoughts roll back that I can't explain
like when I tied the tinsel to the patio
where I swung you round to and fro
pavlova, paper crowns
there ain't no tinsel now
and they've just called stumps on day two
Don't cancel christmas this year
I'm saying I need you here
when wish list morning comes
and all the carols have been sung
I know there's things I'd have done differently
they soon become my new years resolutions
but all I feel is dissolution
I want my christmas red and green and with you
don't make it blue
Pavlova, paper crowns
there ain't no tinsel now
and the uncles started singing
“blue, blue, blue suede shoes,
blue, blue, blue suede shoes,
you can do what you want but lay off of my blue suede shoes”
Don't cancel christmas this year
I'm saying I need you here
when wish list morning comes
all the carols have been sung
I know there's things I'd have done differently
they soon become my new years resolutions
but all I feel is dissolution
I want my christmas red and green and with you
don't make it blue
Track Name: Stuck In Amsterdam
Stuck In Amsterdam
I guess she’ll never leave this town
she was busy saying something about
how she was cursed and tired of letting sweeter people down
European lifestyle meltdown
getting away from the regular crowd
you’re gonna need some space, need some time, gonna need your pills
Sometimes things don’t work out how you plan
stuck in Amsterdam
Sometimes things don’t work out how you plan
stuck in Amsterdam
She's a wanderer or probably lost
she's to centred on the cost
would it be a little different if we hadn’t crashed the car that night
One more cheap hotel
would give me reason to leave this hell
I only need a reason, I only need one more reason
Sometimes things don’t work out how you plan
Stuck in Amsterdam
Sometimes things don’t work out how you plan
Stuck in Amsterdam
Track Name: A Different Side To You
A Different Side To You
Stole all your parents liquor from the kitchen shelf
trying to convince every high school sweetheart you’re the one
they’ll never forget
Tried to make your lovers folks fall in love with all your jokes
so you could stay for dinner
maybe stay the night
But you know, you’re no one at all
but you still, still wear your mask
to protect yourself
There must be a different side to you
There must be a different side to you
Breaking ties with those that you should have never tried to follow
cardboard clouds they cast a shadow
hope exists despite their wits
a kingdom built upon the others rubble
now they’re all just working for the government
and you couldn't care less
But you know, you’re no one at all
but you still, still wear your mask
to protect yourself
There must be a different side to you
There must be a different side to you
Pulling apart your own life just to justify it to others
kissing everyone you can for some sweet sick kind of validation
cutting down trees just to re-write sad history that's only bound to repeat itself
There must be a different side to you
There must be a different side to you
Track Name: It´s A Heartache
It's A Heartache
It's a heartache
Nothing but a heartache
Hits you when you're too late
Hits you when you're down
It's a fool's game
Nothing but a fools game
Standing in the cold rain
Feeling like a clown
It's a heartache
Nothing but a heartache
Love him till your arms break
Then he lets you down
It ain't right with love to share
When you find he doesn't care, for you
It ain't wise to need someone
As much as I depended on, you
It's a heartache
Nothing but a heartache
Hits you when it's too late
Hits you when you're down
It's a fool's game
Nothing but a fools game
Standing in the cold rain
Feeling like a clown
It's a heartache
Nothing but a heartache
Love him till your arms break
Then he lets you down
It ain't right with love to share
When you find he doesn't care, for you
It ain't wise to need someone
As much as I depended on, you
It's a heartache
Nothing but a heartache
Love him till your arms break
Then he lets you down
