Rory Ellis - Bitumen Cowboys     Country, Folk, Blues, Easy Listening 10/12/2019
“Rory Ellis is one of those singer/songwriters, like Leonard Cohen, who makes the hairs on your arms stand up by simply opening his mouth.”- Brett Callwood: Acoustic Magazine UK.
Days, weeks, spent apart from the comforts of home, family, lonely nights holed up in a truck cabin.

There is sadness in separation, solitude in the miles, and stress to make ends meet for the ones they leave behind.

This song is dedicated to those men and women whose passion for the open road makes the world go round.

Paul Lagendyk & Gina Horswood - What I Needed     Country 22/11/2019
Born and raised in Ontario's Oro/Medonte region, Canadian Country is in Paul Lagendyk's blood. George Jones. Waylon Jennings. Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson.
What I Needed, a duet with Australian,, Gina Horswood is about the different perspectives of a break-up.

The man typically goes out and drowns his sorrows. Doesn’t need anything or anyone on the outside. Blames her. His chorus is what he’s really feeling. The hurting and loneliness that he “didn’t need”.

The female perspective is emotional right from the beginning.
