Michaela Jenke - Black River     Country 17/11/2017
Hailing from the Barossa Valley in South Australia, Michaela Jenke is a singer/songwriter whoisn’t afraid to push the boundaries of music categorisation.
Michaela co-wrote Black River with one of Australia’s most acclaimed songwriters, Allan Caswell. The song evolved from a writing session the pair had at this year’s Academy of Country Music in Tamworth. The bluegrassy, alt country track echoes a tale of mystery and secrecy.

Amanda Sempf is a singer, songwriter and recording artist. She found a love for performing at an early age and is thoroughly enjoying her musical journey.
A song about a fellow who had quite a few ladies in tow. Pretty much sticking it to those greedy chaps that only want the innocent hearts/the nice ones.

'Being a Mum will always be my greatest achievement'. Dee sits alone in her yard one Sunday morning reminiscing about the days of being a mum to young children. The bond she shares with her now young adult children is clearly evident in this track's heartfelt lyrics and nostalgic overtones.

Marlon Williams - Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore     Country, Alternative Country, Folk 15/11/2017
Hailing from New Zealand, but now wholeheartedly adopted by Australia, Marlon Williams has quite simply got one of the most extraordinary, effortlessly distinctive voices of his generation.

Recorded via a late-night long distance phone call, the song, as with the rest of the album, captures the bliss, ache, uncertainty and bitterness that is associated with a break-up.

Andrew Swift - Reckless Desires     Country, Roots, Blues 13/11/2017
It seems Swift’s days of drifting may be over. Buoyed by the passionate and supportive country music scene, shore won’t ever be so far away.
Influenced by Springsteen, Reckless Desires is the tale of a man, reflecting on how good things once were and the woman that stood beside him as long as she could, until eventually he drank it all away. It’s that classic story of not realising what you’ve got until it’s gone.
