Greetings All

Today is release day for Day by Day, Powderfinger’s first single in 10 years. While we were digging through the archives to find material for the 20th Anniversary edition of Odyssey Number 5, we uncovered unreleased songs from across most of our career. We were so excited about this unheard stuff that we wanted everyone else to hear it too. There are another 9 songs to come as an album released before the end of the year. Enjoy........
Love BF xx

P.S. head over to the @powderfinger_bandofficial YouTube channel to watch the premiere for Day by Day at 5:30pm AEST today.

Hi There. ...........Melbourne Renaissance Man @pauldempseymusic from @somethingforkate asked me to join him for a bit of a sing on this @officialqueenmusic and @davidbowie classic. I accepted with great pleasure. Sending this one out to all of our Victorian comrades. Hang in there. The gloom will pass. X x

Ahoy. I’m very sorry to announce that my scheduled Cabin Fever shows at the Triffid on August 13 and 14 have to be postponed due to Queensland Border Restrictions. We are hoping to reschedule when the situation calms down so I would encourage you to hold on to your ticket. If you’re unable to do so there will be refund details provided shortly.

This roundabout of announcements and rescheduling is very frustrating for everyone but I encourage all to continue to support venues like @thetriffid that are doing their level best to keep you entertained in these weird circumstances. Stay safe, ignore the morons that are having their fifteen minutes under the cloak of ‘freedom’ or the laughable ‘sovereignty’, and continue to protect healthcare workers and the most vulnerable in our society.

A virtual kiss and hug for all of you, especially our Victorian mates.

Kev Carmody is the real deal. He has been an inspiration to a couple of generations of songwriters for being a truth teller, and an indefatigable fighter for the rights of Aboriginal people in this country. His songs have always had a profound effect on me, brimming with quiet wisdom and poetic beauty. I was honoured to be asked to contribute to the original Cannot Buy My Soul project in 2007 and encourage you to get your hands on the updated 2020 version that features @courtneymelba and @kaseychambersmusic amongst others. It’s out August 21 so head on over to @cannotbuymysoul for more Info

Hi Everybody. Tonight at around 9pm I am playing a couple of songs on this broadcast to help raise funds for Natural Justice. They’re an African based group that fight for ownership and access rights for indigenous people to their traditional lands. Lots of great African artists plus my Madrileño friend Jairo Zavala from @depedromusic Check it out and drop a donation if you can.

Howdy. I had the great pleasure of speaking with Seja Vogel for her brilliant @hearsejpodcast. It’s a pretty decent gasbag where we cover musical influences, songwriting philosophy, memory, Atomic Mushrooms, Brisbane music in the 90s, caffeine induced anxiety and Sonic Youth v Rod Stewart. Check it out. Plenty of AO language in this one so if you don’t want the kids speaking like Uncle Bernard, then best not listen to it on the school run. Each week Seja has an artist illustrate something from the chat. My lovely wife @andrea_portela_moreno made the portrait for this episode. Swipe if you want to see it.

Hello Folks. By now you may have noticed that my old band @powderfinger_bandofficial have reunited to record a broadcast next weekend. It’s been a total blast getting everyone together for this one off event. Jump on our YouTube channel on Saturday May 23 at 7pm turn up the stereo and get up close to the screen. We are asking people to donate to @supportact and @beyondblueofficial
Can’t wait. See you there next weekend.
Love BF x x

RIP Bill Withers. So many beautiful songs of grace and simplicity. He was the first one to make acoustic guitars funky and his voice immediately puts you into a tranquil, meditative place. #ripbillwithers

Hi. I’m Peggy. I’ve taken over BF’s Socials. If it’s not already completely clear, the @peninsulapicnic on the 28th of March is postponed until next year. Sorry to anyone that had planned to come along. Obviously it is completely out of everyone’s control and is the sensible way forward. But keep your ticket for 2021 yeah? Bernard says he is going to bunker down and get cracking on writing a record for next year. Please take care everybody. Especially take care of our oldies. Stay cool. Love Peggy (and BF) x x

What a weekend we just had. Sydney dried up and turned on a beautiful summer evening for our show @twilightattaronga with @olympiamusic and Mighty Queenslander @tiagostelow
We revised our official NO ENCORES policy and managed to get a couple of thousand people making bird and ape noises to welcome us back onstage. Sydney, you really are shameless. Fun, but shameless.
Next day at the beautiful @riverboatsmusic Festival on the Murray River we had 5000 people ‘mooing’ to bring us back. I think we might have started something! Encores are officially awesome again.
Both nights were so much fun and it was great to be briefly back with our old mates @somethingforkate and see them with all of their old fire.
Mornington Peninsularians and Victoria in general we are coming for you next at the end of March. Stay tuned. 📷 1 - @ahimagery 🙏

Well a giant thank you to all of the Bangaloids, Byronsiders, Mullumians Lennoxers, and Far South East Queenslanders that braved the weather for the shows at Bangalow on the weekend. What a blast that was. I think we all trimmed down a few kilos due to the humidity, which should hold us all in good stead for Oscar dress up parties tonight.........Or not........ Anyway, it was great to be out playing with @bfandtheblackfins again and we are all looking forward to @twighlightattaronga and @riverboatsmusic this weekend and blasting out some old and new tunes.

Here we are at the new Black Fins HQ, a top secret location in the sinister back streets of Byron Bay, Far South East Queensland. It’s our great pleasure to welcome @iandavidhaug, my old @powderfinger_bandofficial alumni, to the fold. We’ve been dusting off a few old numbers and working up a couple of new jams for 2020. Hoggy is stepping in for a few shows while Andrew ‘Double Shot’ Morris takes paternity leave after SEVERELY impregnating his lovely partner Amanda with not one, but TWO babies ( rumoured to be named ‘Bernard’ and ‘Fanning’ Morris). Anyway, we are very excited about playing shows for you this weekend at Bangalow A&I Hall. Come along early and check out @matthewarmitagemusic on Friday and @sozard_ on Saturday. Doors at 7, music starts 730. #farsoutheastqueensland #severelyimpregnated #bernardmorris #fanningmorris Photo by Saliana Helpy Campbell

Today I acknowledge the Arakwal and Bundjalung people whose land my family live on. I still haven’t heard a decent argument against changing the date of our national day. No one loses anything but a lot of people benefit greatly. Let’s stop being a nation of deniers and just get on with contributing to the 21st Century. Of course we should celebrate our country’s successes, but we can do it on a day that includes ALL of us. And to any of you culture warriors who want to take this idea down with a wall of abuse and hysterical faux patriotism, why not instead, try listening for once? #changethedate

Hey Ladies and Gentlemens.
I want to say thanks to all of you for your enthusiasm for Make It Rain 2020. It was an incredible couple of nights that brought the Northern Rivers community together to whoop it up in the name of the RFS. We are on the way to raising $250000 for our local brigades. For those that couldn’t make it, the auction runs until this Friday the 17th. Let’s see if anyone has a lazy $30k lying around so mine and Hoggy’s songwriting auction item can catch @chrishemsworth & @elsapatakyconfidential There are so many incredible ‘money can’t normally buy’ experiences so head over to to place your bid. All hail the incredible bravery of our firefighters and emergency services. The action of the community all over our beautiful country has led the way and kicked the insipid Morrison government up the arse. Top work Australia, let’s keep the pressure on.

I want to let you know that I am playing a benefit show for the Northern Rivers Rural Fire Service in Byron Bay on the 9th of January. It’s taking place over two nights (8th & 9th) and has a blistering line up including WOLFMOTHER, ARC (Jet, You Am I, Spiderbait and Even members), TIM ROGERS, TEX PERKINS, T’n’T, BF & MOST OF THE BLACK FINS and a heap of other local acts and special guests. Tickets are going to go like hot cakes so get in QUICK. They would make a fabulous Christmas present for you and your mates and all proceeds go to helping our tireless RFS volunteers to keep them at their best to fight these bloody horrific fires.
If you can’t make it to the show then there is also an online auction attached to the show that has an incredible list of ‘money can’t normally buy’ personalized experiences. Train for an hour with Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky, go for a surf with Mick Fanning and Joel Parkinson, try a songwriting workshop with yours truly, take on two time US OPEN champion Pat Rafter in a game of tennis, have a personal styling session with Isabella from Spell & The Gypsy Collective. . There are tons more unbelievable experiences up for grabs. So jump on the website and start bidding. Please spread the word so we can raise as much money as possible for our firefighting units.
Tix, Auction, Donations ⬇️
Love, BF xxx
