In Sydney Australia

Darren posted a new blog

I am sitting in my favorite café in Sydney. It's a place that's been the backdrop to many of my adventures in this town since the beginning of my career. For those who don't know I'm originally from Brisbane, Queensland. As a child, Sydney was always this glamorous almost Hollywood-like place I'd visit sometimes to see relatives. Later on it became the city Daniel Jones and I would record our first Savage Garden album. The hub of all the magic that began my career. And today it still holds a fascination as a place I visit and adore but have never known as home.

But in this café, on my own, I feel a wonderful sense of familiarity. It's not fancy but it's perfect. The right food (always breakfast no matter what time) and staff and décor that are friendly without being over the top. And we're like old friends.

My trip down under was rough as usual. How can flying 21 hours ever be rejuvenating? But you get through it mostly by using the time to think and occasionally sleep. I arrived at my hotel and immediately had a shower and got ready to see my godson Calvin and his parents; Mother Leonie (one my oldest friends and former manager) and her husband Robert (famously my co writer and producer for years) Spent the whole jetlagged day with them and the new addition, the adorable little Jarvis.

Leonie is doing really well, managing an artist called Axle Whitehead. And Robert is on fire. He co wrote and produced Axle's record but has become something of a buzz in Australia involved in many albums and projects. It makes me happy that there is life after Darren Hayes. They've both given me so much and it's nice to see their hard work has resulted in outside success.

It was a very strange time lapse day – reminding me of the past – sliding into a future in weary time zoned blur. Later I saw my dear friend Troy Brennan (responsible for all the hair both good and bad over the years). It was a bit like old times and I loved it.
These days everyone has moved on and is doing their own things (and doing them well!); but it was nice to feel that connection again.

I did some interviews this morning to discuss my upcoming mentoring role on Australian Idol (we film tomorrow and this weekend). It's going to be a busy week but I'm really enjoying it so far. The crew are wonderful and the contestants seem really likeable and talented. I'm looking forward to getting into it.

On another note completely, the time spent prior to getting on the plane in London was hectic to say the least. Richard and I were desperately trying to finish the last video for the DVD. We had to make sure all the files were on their way to Jane in Australia for her to do the compile next week – which meant I had to sign off on the edit of Neverland (the one video I directed). Richard and I worked until 6 am the night before I left. And then literally an hour ago I spoke to him on the phone in London and he'd finished it.
He sent me a link to watch it and I was so happy. He's done a wonderful job (as always) and This Delicate Film is finally finished. Well, our part at least.

Jane Wallace (who did all the artwork for the recent album) is working on the artwork for the book and stitching together all the videos and authoring the final output. But the 'work' per se on our end is over.

That's a really satisfying feeling after 2 years of blood sweat and tears.
Actually there may not have been any blood, perhaps just that bruise when I twisted my ankle earlier this year. But you get my point ;)

Next week I have the pleasure of going home to Brisbane for 3 nights to spend time with my lovely family before heading back to my new one in England.

Life. Is. Beautiful.
