Two of Australia's most loved Singer/Songwriters. Greg Champion & Johnny Chester.

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

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!

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.
