We arrived in Darwin 2 weeks ago and have already played some really cool venues including The Darwin Railway Club, The Pint Club,  Browns Mart Theatre, Chippo and Humpty Doo Hotel. We have met so many lovely people, and are pretty much living the dream… For Real! Life on the road is soooo great. Loving every minute. Just working on locking in the next bunch of show dates, so stay tuned… Peace and Love KP

Well… Much too our surprise, we are stoked to announce that China Doll took out the "BEST GROUP AWARD" for the second time running at The Boyup Brook Music Festival a couple of weeks ago!! We were up against some stiff competition so it was an honour to have won!! Also we have just found out that our song "She Don't Need To Know" is a Semi finalist in the International Songwriting competition. Its pretty crazy to be shortlisted alongside the likes of  other Aussie artists such as Bertie Blackman and Kimbra. There were almost 19,000 entries from 100 countries, and making it through to the semi's means we were in the top 8% - SUPER STOKED!!!


So excited about heading to the Tamworth Country Music Festival as a finalist for the Toyota Star Maker Competition. Really excited to be playing some shows whilst I'm in town too. See you there xx KP
