A poetic outpour by Australian independent singer-songwriter, Ziggy Alberts. sun memos is the second self-published poetry book by Alberts which differentiates from his lyrical work as an introspective look behind the mind of the musician on the road and at home. Featuring his signature environmental metaphors, sun memos, like his debut book, brainwaves, is split into four parts and allows readers to join him on a journey of personal realisations and acts as an invitation to enter a vulnerable relationship between the writer and the reader within the pages of his prose.

sun memos was brought to life amongst the relative chaos of Ziggy Alberts’ extensive touring the world. As Ziggy said - "it was almost lost in the years between, and I can breathe a sigh of relief now these sun memos are bundled into these pages.

Writing poetry has nothing to do with publishing it. Writing poetry is what music has been for me since the very beginning: an outpour.

Minimal planning, maximum emotion.

Like my first book, brainwaves, this is another thoughtfully independent project made possible by my family & friends at Commonfolk Publishing.

Looking forward to connecting with you all for the second time, and again."
