Grant Luhrs - Clever Words     Country 01/08/2018
Grant Luhrs is a Singer Songwriter from Wagga Wagga who has released 14 albums. Clever Words is a collection of his serious songs from those albums.
Clever is an interesting adjective...it can be used with noble intent to describe something truly smart and wondrous. Clever words are used in the real world to deceive, distort, promote fear, perpetuate ignorance, create propaganda, start wars, help you believe, persuade you to buy things and make you angry. This is the message I hope you find in this song.

Kate Hindle - Loneliness     Country, Alternative Country 25/07/2018
Kate Hindle’s warm vocal tones and raw lyrics take the listener on a journey of love, personal victory, positivity and a yet a touch of heartache.
