The Chris Commerford Band - The Way You Treat Me Right     Blues, Rock 26/02/2020
The Chris Commerford Band are an established blues/rock rnb 5-piece, formed by the glittering Australian coast of the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria.
A groove-driven blues-rock jam, brimming with dirty guitar riffs, soulful vocals and horns.

It explores the ways the early phases of a relationship can feel like an addiction - when it feels impossible to get that significant other out of your head. It delves deeper still, looking at the way, just like any addiction, it can come with a downside.

Blues Arcadia - Two Wrongs (Don't Make It Right)     Blues, Soul, Roots, R&B 25/02/2020
Blues Arcadia combine the legendary soul of Stax and Motown with the heat and power of the Chicago and Memphis blues to create a unique dirty-soul sound.
With Blues Blast Magazine (US) enthusing that “with them, the future of blues is secure”, Blues Arcadia create a sound that is part jazz, blues and funk fortified with a dash of dark and dirty soul. Two Wrongs (Don’t Make It Right) is no exception: a funky-ass face-slapper of rolling snare hits and Rhodes keyboard stabs dancing around room.

Andre Camilleri - Keep Your Eyes On The Road (And Your Hands On The Wheel)     Blues, Country, Alternative, Roots 19/02/2020
Arguably one of Australia's most prolific songwriters, Andre Camilleri blends Americana, Alternative and the Blues to create unique sonic landscapes of timeless beauty.
This is the the first track I recorded for my new solo album "Troubled Times'. I am keen to play some shows again soon and figured the easiest thing to do would be to write a bunch of songs for just acoustic guitar, vocal and a bit of harmonica.

The SunBears - Set Fire To My Heart     Blues 19/02/2020
Blues from the heart every note of the way...
The SunBears tour the country playing their contemporary original blues to audiences that keep wanting them back. We are one of the most passionate and high energy blues acts in the country.

The Mezcaltones - Motorcycle Girl     Blues, Roots 17/02/2020
The Mezcaltones? Guys dressed as cowboys, women dressed like Mexican Senoritas, looks like a Tarantino movie – guitars, bass, drums, a crazy front man and a beautiful dancer and percussionist.
An infectious uptempo and catchy 60’s surf rock tune. The tones of the valve amplifiers blend beautifully with the casually urgent pulse that is the drums and bass. A very retro sounding pop song.

Other tracks by The Mezcaltones:  Dancin'  -  Ellie
The Boys Club - That's A Big Guitar     Blues, Jazz, Country, Folk 15/02/2020
Three women, no chords, and one big guitar.
“That’s A Big Guitar” is the title track of Adelaide jazz trio The Boys Club’s latest album. The song is a tongue in cheek, call-and-response blues tune, that lays bare the almost comical treatment the trio have had to endure while on stage during their professional careers as musicians.

Colin Jones - How Long     Blues, Jazz, Easy Listening, Soul 14/02/2020
Colin carries the range/depth evoked by someone who creates songs that frame his self-taught journey as a cathartic experience and figuratively place a release valve, wielding control over emotion.
"It's about never being able to get it right and the spiral that can put you in," Colin explains, "It's an old song that used to be a folk ballad. The production was an idea I had in the studio back in 2016, and it became this acid-tinged noir soundtrack."

Brett Littlefair - Where've You Been     Blues, Roots, Rock 24/01/2020
Brett Littlefair performs groovin', infectious boogie style blues played on guitars made from hubcaps, biscuit tins and other weird stuff.
Where've You Been is a tip of the hat to Elmore James and Hound Dog Taylor. A biting slide intro demands the listeners attention before it settles into it's chugging, toe tapping rhythm.

Other tracks by Brett Littlefair:  Light Me On Fire  -  Voodoo Queen
Emma Bosworth - Low Road     Blues, Roots, Rock, Pop 24/01/2020
Brisbane artist smashing down the barriers of the singer-songwriter genre, undeniably in her prime. This song was nominated for Song of the Year at the Australian Roots Music Awards, 2019.
“The song is a reflection of people not minding their own business. It’s also a gift to myself, that despite a pretty hard struggle, I’ve been immensely rewarded for sticking to my guns”.
