The Woodland Hunters - Meteor To My Heart     Country, Alternative Country, Psychedelic, Rock 15/09/2017
Melbourne-based alt-country, psychedelic-tinged four-piece band. Let's Fall Apart is their debut album, produced by Shane O'Mara. Nine original songs that critic Bernard Zuel suggests are more Rolling Stones than Beatles.
A slice of jangle pop with nods to the The Byrds and Big Star. Singer Andrew Tanner says the track is ‘either about the first flush of new love – or the stoic acceptance that happiness is an often random event beyond our control. I can’t work out which one’.

Carter and Carter - World Full Of Angels     Country 12/09/2017
Carter & Carter have so many runs on the board that there should be no argument about describing them as Australian Independent country music artists of the decade.
World Full Of Angels follows the inspiring hit single Stand Tall.
Another uptempo track, with Carter & Carter's signature melodies, harmonies and songwriting, it deals with life's rollercoaster of ups and downs and the feeling that that mountain ahead is just too much to climb.

A naturally gifted singer, accomplished guitarist and dynamic live performer, Caitlyn has all the qualities that form the basis of a credible and long-lasting career in music.
‘I wrote this song in Nashville with two incredible females. Danielle Blakey (Stan Walker/Vera Blue) & Emily Shackleton. We wanted to have some fun with this one but also keep in with the theme of being a strong female. It’s always been a personal favourite of mine!’ - Caitlyn.

Greg Champion and Johnny Chester - Keep This Old Truck Tickin'     Country 02/09/2017
Two of Australia's most loved Singer/Songwriters. Greg Champion & Johnny Chester.
As Greg Champion was finishing his new album in late May, he wrote a song about not bouncing back quite like you used to: Keep This Old Truck Tickin’. The new tune called for a duet, so Champs called upon one of Country’s favourite sons: Johnny Chester.

Sarah Leete - Safe     Country 02/09/2017
Sarah Leete is a singer/songwriter and full time independent musician from North West NSW.
Safe is the first single off the debut album from Sarah Leete. It explores the vulnerability of love and relationships that manages to stand out from what is currently being played on the radio today.

Time Robb - Gentle Annie Lane     Folk, Acoustic, Alternative Country, Pop 02/09/2017
Time Robb writes folk songs that are intricately fingerpicked and explore landscapes that are dark and visceral, yet the songs still contain moments of refined beauty and hope.
Gentle Annie Lane is a searching song, a song about reaching for something that is always that little bit too far away to grasp. In a more literal sense, it is a song about addiction, gold digging and visiting darker places.

Other tracks by Time Robb:  Black Crow (Christmas Breakdown, 2016)  -  Malady Melody
Mark Shay - I'm Me     Country, Pop, Rock 31/08/2017
With his strong supportive fan base and dedicated sponsors who believe in the Mark Shay Brand, Mark has been able to defy his detractors as his career continues to grow.
The new single "I'm Me" is Mark Shay's 'In Your Face' anthem. The style of "I’m Me" is a little different from Mark’s other songs, but still remains uniquely Mark Shay.

Michaela Jenke - Diamonds Outta Dirt     Country, Alternative Country, Rock 30/08/2017
Pushing boundaries of country music, and making a statement with her blend of country rock, alternative country and Americana, Michaela Jenke is an artist to watch!
Country with edge, Diamonds Outta Dirt makes a statement with its bold and slightly cheeky lyrics backed by punchy guitar twang. This is a dose of fresh country with a whole lotta attitude best turned up to full volume.

Niksta - Back to Nothing     Blues/Roots, Alternative Country, Roots 30/08/2017
I am a singer songwriter on the Central Coast. I have supported a lot of Australia's artists. My 5th Album is called Broken - Roots recorded played all instruments.
Giving everything and getting nothing in return. Showing no forgiveness or compassion towards another. Which brings you back to feeling absolutely nothingI recorded all the instruments. Production by me also and mixed & mastered by Keith Walker (who has worked with a lot of australia's top artists eg Midnight oil.)

Roadhouses - Drinkin'     Country, Alternative Country, Folk 30/08/2017
Roadhouses are a Sydney based three-piece that plays sedated rock n roll. Their sound is tremolo soaked, evoking an empty hotel bar in a Lynch film.
Dinkin' is a country/lounge music crossover that is as compelling as it is hypnotic. Equal parts slowcore and codeine country like Lucinda Williams fronting Spain.

King Curly - Calling For Fire     Folk, Alternative Country, Acoustic 26/08/2017
"King Curly" is born of the desire to right wrongs and punish evil. In that respect, his spiritual forefathers are Robin Hood, Batman, Moses etc. Good Medicine for us all.
After a long absence from the stage, building alternative-design mud houses, Steve Appel has re-emerged to showcase a new King Curly EP, “Calling For Fire”: songs imbued with apocalyptic foreboding, inspired by the inflammable nature of the Australian bush in his native Blue Mountains and the wider world at large.
