Pre-Order My New Album

"Home Is Where The Heart Is" is now nearly completely recorded but there is still much more work to be done! We are now working on getting the album mixed, mastered, pressed and out to the masses, complete with incredible artwork and more love than you could ever imagine!

I have been proudly committed to staying completely independent throughout my career, even co-founding Walkaboutfish Records to give us the platform to independently release my music. This album is no different, except that it's our biggest and most ambitious project ever, and that is why we are asking for your help to get it off the ground. Click to pre-order and then please look at some of the extra incentives we've made available for you to be a part of this special project. Expected release date in early May 2013. Cheers!

Battle of the Sexes!

On Monday at the BankSA Sea and Vines Festival, sport stars and media personalities will fight for the title of bottling champions at d’Arenberg.

Bringing the girl power is champion Aussie netballer from Australian Netball Diamonds Natalie Medhurst, GLAM Adelaide guru Kelly Noble and the victorious florist from My Kitchen Rules, Leigh Sexton.

Stepping up to represent the boys are talented musician Jay Hoad, foodie about town and My Kitchen Rules contestant Paul Wood and returning champion from last year, McLaren Vale local Darren Bradley.

Each team is joined by a member of the crowd, chosen on the day.... and it could be you! And don't forget to see the full Jay Hoad Band in performance at the Sea and Vines Festival on both Sunday and Monday. Cheers!
