Lecia Louise - Quitting's a Breeze     Blues/Roots, Rock, Roots, Live Performance 13/12/2018
Lecia Louise demands attention with her soaring, bluesin’ rockin’ guitar riffs and licks with emotive lyrics created from life experiences.
The song is created from the simplicity of 2 chords which weave between suspended and major 7th notes reflecting the changing yet disturbing reality of depression.

The vocal melody rises in pitch from through each verse and choruse, finally reaching its musical and lyrical climax in the bridge.

When things get hard quitting can appear the easy way out.

Nathan Cavaleri - Rising Sun     Blues/Roots 07/12/2018
Nathan Cavaleri solidified his place as a blues guitarist in the Oz music scene collaborating with the likes of Jimmy Barnes, Tommy Emmanuel and Diesel from the age of 10.
Nathan pays tribute to the man that landed him his first record deal and tour at age 10, Jimmy Barnes, by bringing Cold Chisel’s ‘Rising Sun’ into his own musical world. With sleazy swamp riffs over hip hop implied beats and Diesel on backing vocals, the cover is barely recognisable as an Aussie classic, leaning towards contemporary gritty blues overtones.

"King Of The World", is an old number Stillert wrote many years ago for a friend going through some tough times, it evokes a longing and sentiment that pours fourth through scattered guitars and Stillert's many voices. This is just a taste of things to come from the mad hatter with his many new sounds.

Caroline Taylor-Knight - Dance For You     Blues/Roots 05/12/2018
Caroline Taylor-Knight is a captivating and passionate singer/songwriter delighting audiences with her heartfelt honesty, writing and performing - from stunning ballads through to pop, rock, country and everything in between.
"Dance For You" is a playful, fun track Caroline wrote because when she first met her now husband/producer Duncan Wood, he sang "You Can Leave Your Hat On" to her. This obviously scared Caroline and she questioned his intentions. But they've now been married sometime and have two beautiful girls, so on her last album Caroline wrote this in response.
