The Thousand Steps.... is he going to heaven... or hell!!! Urban Blues from The Nuts featuring Johnny Cash-u-Nut on lead guitar and Mac Adamia on shouty-type vocals. A song about the hard life of a working feller who is trapped no matter which way he turns. Sad, and yet, strangely uplifting due to the strong performances and Sody Pop production.

Harvey - Coasting     Blues/Roots, Roots, Chill, Pop 17/04/2019
Harvey is an Australian singer, songwriter and performer who loves combining electronic and acoustic musical elements to create tasty feel-good music.
Coasting is a feel-good tune that combines acoustic and electronic musical elements. It's about adventure, enjoying life and just coasting. I wrote all the parts and played most of the instruments in 'Coasting' with help from my producer in Sydney. Coasting has lyrical imagery of the sea and sailing and the music video was shot across beaches and coastal towns.

The Kate Lush Band - Jackson     Blues/Roots, Rock, Roots, Pop 16/04/2019
Think Susan Tedeschi, Sheryl Crow & Bonnie Raitt meet St Paul & The Broken Bones in a bar in New Orleans and get mixed up in something seriously Funky!!
The album is full of songs that lift people up, make them remember when they felt free & fell in love. I heard about a 24hr Bourbon bar just outside of New Orleans that was hidden down a winding dirt road & built on the banks of the Mississippi. It was totally hip and inspired me to write Jackson...

Other tracks by The Kate Lush Band:  Fall Down 7 Times (Stand up 8)  -  Goodbye To The Rain
Isaac Thomas - Walking Contradiction     Blues/Roots, Roots, Soul, Easy Listening 16/04/2019
Singer/Songwriter Isaac Thomas beautifully blends quality guitar playing with soulful vocals and memorable melodies. Definitely something worth listening to.
Walking Contradiction is about those people. You know, those toxic people that suck the life out of everything that they touch or come near... them.

changoTRee - Tomorrow     Blues/Roots, Roots, Roots, Roots 12/04/2019
changoTRee’s debut album “Home” went number 1 on AMRAP Regional charts. Now the “Postcards” project is the pith of their travelling, writing, recording & performing around the world.
A spaghetti western. The cost when wandering into the past is the dread ghosts that lead into future, with the spin of stories as past and future collude to create an enigma that dogs every step into Tomorrow. The fight to keep in the present moment. Written and recorded in the UK.

Louis Valentine & The Golden Age - Omeo     Blues/Roots, Soul 11/04/2019
Louis Valentine is a singer and a songwriter who wants to be Van Morrison. The Golden Age are a killer soul band from Melbourne. Together they make beautiful music.
Omeo is a a jaunty soul/country ditty about the glorious town of the same name in the Victorian high country. It is inspired by an ill-fated, 4 day gig playing background music at what turned out to be a rich-persons cult. The town of Omeo, its friendly people and its fabulous pubs offered the only refuge.

Mick Hart - 3am     Blues/Roots 09/04/2019
Australian singer/songwriter Mick Hart has been touring the world for the past 20 years, playing festivals and concerts all over Australia, Europe, UK, Japan and the USA.
A more chilled bluesy single then the previous offering from Mick, this track could easily sit somewhere between Jack Johnson and John Butler. It’s certainly more indicative of the forthcoming album and features some great guitar, Fender Rhodes, drums and bass which all mesh together to make the chorus' really stand out.

The father-daughter duo turned four-piece band are weaving their smooth melodies and contagious choruses into listener’s minds nationwide, and you don’t want to be missing out on the fun.
Standing Still is essentially about depression. It came from a lonely and dark place but through the power of music I realised that the fact that they I was still alive and standing mean't something. It meant all was not lost and the song grew from there.

Other tracks by The Chesterfield Band:  Our North Star  -  If It Doesn't Hurt

They don’t come more multli-cultural than newcomer to the talented teen scene, the 17 year-old Jelly Oshen who was raised on the festival circuit since the age of 5.
Chilled, naïve, magical, idealistic pretty much sums up Jelly’s debut onto the scene. Garden of Love is a cruisy catchy tune, which gives you the vibe to lay back look up and count the stars and dream…Garden of Love is about everyone’s happy place or favorite thing and sharing it with someone special.
