Points tip

Saw the Sydney Opera House
opera house
and a foosball sculpture that the guys were playing behind me
foos ball
and the Pacific Ocean from an East coast
east coast pacific
and the world’s steepest railway down Blue Mountains with the fellas
steepest railway
and an Ibis on a dumpster
but I’ve not seen a single kangaroo, koala
or glaring difference in the human condition.

Nailed it! Go go go!!
See how my friends Abigail Baird and Andy Cook are charging hearts:

When we are on stage and they hand us a microphone and ask us how it feels,
I think of you and I want to say, ‘Call 911, tell’um we are having a fantastic time.’

G’day Y’all!

Eight months into Riled Up and Wasted On Light – Buddy Wakefield’s 2014-15 World Tour (Skipping Chechnya) and still going strong. Here’s the what’s up:

1) There are birds outside my room in Sydney that sound startlingly akin to a cat in heat. Pay no mind, the people are super stinkin’ friendly.

2) There are FIVE new t-shirt designs and a new poster available on

3) If interested in booking a Buddy Wakefield show, the final leg of the tour runs late January through March 2015 on the U.S. East Coast (Maine all the way down to Florida). Contact for information, available dates, and pricing on workshops and performances. There are also dates available in Europe/U.K, late October 2014 through mid-January 2015.

4) There is no such thing as a massive spider in Australia. There is no such thing as a massive spider crawling into the bathroom in Australia. There is no such thing as a massive hand-sized spider crawling into the bathroom in Australia. There is no such thing as a massive hand-sized spider with friends in Australia. There is no such thing as a straight jacket for screamers. There is no….

5) The full list of dates for Europe and Africa have not been released yet (keep checking back!), but the Australia dates are all posted on

6) I can hardly wait to join up with Anis Mojgani at two of the Australian shows. He’s awesome as peanut butter. The presence of a friend like Anis (or peanut butter, or you) sure helps keep me bright-eyed on the road. Come visit.

How do you make a duck into a soul singer?
Put it in the oven at 350 until its bill withers.

In the Winnipeg airport now headed to Saskatoon for the Potash Fringe Festival.
This picture just landed in my inbox from the Picraux brothers in Nebraska.
They attended the Louder Than A Bomb show back in the U.S. and wanted to send some kindness,
encouragement for the long road ahead.
Thank you Artbeat Studio and The Wright Family for making Winnipeg such a success.

Kaylen and I
put 15,000 miles on the tour van
in the last three months
and are downright tuckered for the moment.
Sure delighted to be heading off to a Vipassana course now
to let impermanence do its job.

I’ll be unavailable via phone or email until June 6, 2014.
If you find yourself needing answers regarding a merchandise matter
please contact Houston Hughes at

If there’s a booking question, please see the booking page on
and contact the appropriate person.

U.S. organizers, I’ll respond to your email as soon as I return (Danny Oliver is also out of the office).
Please be patient as there is a quick trip to the Winnipeg Spoken Word Festival
through June 10th directly following Vipassana.
Rest assured your email will be received and tended to as soon as we’re able.

Any promotional matters please contact

Questions regarding shows/festivals already booked,
not to worry,

Kind regards,
