ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album came to life on two picket lines. The first at the Brisbane
waterfront. The shipping giant Hutchison fired half its workforce by
text message. One More Day than Them is inspired by the Maritime
Union’s fight for the workers. After 100 days of picketing they
defiantly walked back through the gates!

The second picket line at a children’s hospital - brave medical
workers refused to discharge injured refugee child Asha into
Australia’s infamous offshore detention prisons. Let Them Stay
was written then. In a small victory, baby Asha and her family
were allowed to remain, all be it, in community detention.

This album reflects this trade union resistance, with a song
dedicated to each participating union. For a year I met with
them and wrote songs to capture their defiant spirit. Themes
often overlapped: the fight for safe and fair conditions, decent
wages, secure jobs and respect. I hope this collection can
play a part, however small, in the fight for justice.

Participating unions include the Maritime Union of Australia,
the Electrical Trades Union, the Queensland Teachers’ Union,
the Australian Manufacturing Workers’ Union, the
Queensland Nurses and Midwives’ Union, United Voice
and the Queensland Council of Unions..
