Julia Stone invited you to contribute to the Songs for Australia project for bushfire relief.  What was it like being involved with a worldwide project?

I was actually so happy and so honored when Julia called me for the project because when the bushfire crisis started in Australia I was feeling so useless, like many crises that go on these days, like that’s cool I’m a musician but I can’t do anything with that coz I can’t save lives, I felt useless. So when she asked me to be part of the album, I was so honored and happy that she gave me the opportunity.

You covered ‘Big Jet Plane’, why did you choose that song?

I chose ‘Big Jet Plane’ because all of the songs on the album are Australian and I’m ashamed to say that apart from Sia and Angus & Julia I didn’t know too many Australian artists or songs by heart.
