Guest Reader: Daniel Vorrasi
Daniel is a lone traveller, soul seeker and creative adventurer with only sunshine and snow fall in his rear view mirror. He is an arts and festival producer, underground muso, dulcet toned radio host, a cook his nonna would be proud of, and if you need a concrete carpark he can build that too.

Music: The Climbing Trees
In the space of just 6 months Climbing Trees have self-produced their debut album in their small home studio and signed to New York label, Flavorlab. Paul Anstey and Sonny Taverna are music teachers by day and create dreamy indie-folk by night. Combining fragile guitars, carefully constructed melodies and their love of harmonies.
Their songs are born in various ways, often together or back and forth through email. This collaborative songwriting sees them alternate lead vocals according to each songs tendency, which gives their debut album a fresh dynamic from one track to the next.
Climbing Trees debut, “Little Dreamer” will be out in early 2015. Listen to their work on Soundcloud
