James changed the landscape of Australian country music when he emerged in the late 80’s, and paved the way for many of our contemporary country artists.

Paul Costa - In This Life     Country 04/11/2009
Paul Costa is a package for the future – he’s got the looks, the voice and the attitude – but most importantly he’s got the music.
From Paul: This is the song that I wanted the whole album to be about “Life from where I see it”. Working towards a better future in life and love.

‘Asleep at the Wheel’ founder and Grammy Awards winners, Lucky Oceans released solo record, ‘Secret Steel’ which the West Australian called ‘a tour de force of versatility and virtuosity.’
Learned from Paul Brady’s hair-raising vocal version of the song about an Irishman who meets a Creole girl in Louisiana. Said to contain the greatest lie in all of songdom: ‘Twere not for the alligators, I’d sleep out in the rain’

The Wedded Bliss places its faith in the blues, country, jazz & gospel. The songs weave honest tales of love, drunkenness, poverty, desire, faith & hope.

Other tracks by Mick Thomas:  Can I Sleep On Your Floor?  -  Spin!Spin!Spin!
Matt Joe Gow And The Dead Leaves - Come What May     Country, Alternative Country 28/09/2009

Husband -Wife duo Shane Nicholson and Kasey Chambers present 'Rattin' Bones' - a spectacular alt country release for fans of Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris and Gillian Welch.
The instrumentation is as direct and heartfelt as the songs, with acoustic guitars, dobro, banjo, lap steel and fiddle, leaving all the space required for two voices to work their magic.

Other tracks by Kasey Chambers & Shane Nicholson:  Monkey On A Wire  -  Wildflower
Fee Brown & the Highwater - The Devil Dressed Me     Rock, Alternative Country 28/09/2009
Melbourne band Fee Brown & The Highwater's unique sound traverses the border between Alt Country and Folk.
Opens with a snarl (brooding and contemplative), yet quickly marches into a bar room romp. As the band pick up the swing you can almost smell the smoke and whiskey; makes you want to dance around your living room swigging rum and joining in on the “whoa whoa whoas”.

Other tracks by Fee Brown & the Highwater:  24 Hours (Bobby's Waltz)  -  Fitzroy County
Troy Cassar-Daley - Sing About This Country     Country 28/09/2009
The legendary Troy Cassar-Daley has established himself as one of Australia's finest and most evocative singer-songwriters. He's also know as one of the most likeable blokes in country music!
‘Sing About This Country’ is Troy's salute to Australia, its geography and all of its co-habitants and he’s urging us all to be proud of it and to take care of the land we live in.


Other tracks by Troy Cassar-Daley:  Big Big Love  -  Chasin' Rodeos
Genevieve Maynard and The Tallboys - Green Beads     Rock, Alternative Country, Acoustic 25/09/2009
Genevieve Maynard refines her melancholy Alt. Country sound with new band The Tallboys. 'The Hollow Way' was recorded and mixed over 2 years in Genevieve’s own Revolution Studios.
Luscious yet sparse production and instrumentation gives this track a stand-out sonic palette, in which the warm and honest vocal leads us on a melodic journey, catching the ear and engaging the imagination.

Other tracks by Genevieve Maynard and The Tallboys:  Long Gone  -  Ripped
PRESIDENT ROOTS - She Lights Up     Rock, Roots, Country, Folk 25/09/2009
Alt country folk-rockers 'President Roots' specialise in foot-stomping ditties for the down-trodden. Their debut album 'Migration' was released nationally through Vitamin earlier this year.
A crowd-pleasing foot-stomper. This is the one that guarantees to fill the dance floor every time at gigs. Mutant Bluegrass. Think Stones on Exile on Main street / Let it Bleed period. Loose in all the right ways.
Ton of Feathers weighs the same as a ton of fun!
