COLD CHISEL WILL BE RELEASING A SONG I WROTE,
AND IT’S OUT TOMORROW!!
When i was a kid, growing up on the Northern streets of Adelaide, (Elizabeth, Salisbury, Gawler, One Tree Hill,) you had to know who Cold Chisel were. It was sacrilege if you didn’t, every second song on the radio was a Chisel song. You weren’t alive if you didn’t know who they were.
It’s amazing to think that cut to 20 years in the future, my song would be released as a Cold Chisel song.
This has to be one of, if not, my greatest career highlight so far. ‘Lost’ was co-written with long time collaborator, good mate, and songwriting mentor, Don Walker. Don wrote most of the Chisel classics such as “Khe Sahn,” and my favourite, “Flame Trees.”
Don and i started writing together many years ago, when i was about 15 and we haven’t stopped since, we’ve written quite a few now and there’s a few great tunes lying around..
‘Lost’ is very close to my heart, having played it many times at my own shows around this great land. I remember when i sat down in a stairwell at the back of a stage in the middle of Australia somewhere, just about to go on, and the chorus just came flooding out. And for me, at that time, i was pretty Lost in life, i’ve always felt like i never really truly have found my place in life. Always searching for something greater.. And yes, we all ‘get a little Lost sometimes, but that’s alright.’
‘Lost’ is a song which yields great power and i’ve seen it bring a tear to many a grown mans eye and silence a room all over the country, in every venue i’ve been to.
Chisel gives it a new dimension and i can’t wait for it to become one of their many iconic anthems in years to come.
