Thomas Plunkett - Make Haste Slowly     Folk, Pop 04/07/2018
Indie Rock with flavours of folk from the Apple Isle.
Make Haste Slowly is the translation of my ancestral family's motto. It reflects a tradition of pursuing a goal quickly, but without compromise; a concept I tried to evoke when writing the song. It was an experiment in songwriting, as I approached the lyrics before writing the music, which is very uncommon for my personal process.

Hannah Campbell is a warm, discerning, and joyfully vulnerable story teller. Her music draws people in with folky roots, and keeps them around with her moving lyrics and catchy melodies.
Run Like Wolves is inspired by the book Women who Run with the Wolves, by Clarissa Pinkola Estes, a veracious telling of the fierce, powerful and nurturing archetypal woman. My take on femininity focuses on strength in vulnerability, weighing joy with grief in equal measures, and empowerment, rather than judgement.

Paula Standing - Chic Chic Boom     Folk, Country 01/07/2018
Powerful stories with soulful vocals, Paula Standing takes everyday experiences of ordinary people and turns them into delicious tales, but watch out for the sting.
Society's penchant for fame, wealth and immortality. A female passerby fabricates a 'witness' statement for TV coining the infamous phrase 'Chick Chick Boom'. The 1% hold the wealth, continually demanding more. I wonder why? Mother nature will reclaim us all and we take nothing with us when we go.

Other tracks by Paula Standing:  Good Heart  -  Can't Stand By
Montgomery Church - Hot As Hell In Heaven     Folk, Acoustic, Alternative Country, Country 28/06/2018
Cielle Montgomery and James Church are ‘Montgomery Church’ - a blend of acoustic folk, americana and bluegrass influences, grown and distilled in the Snowy Mountains of country New South Wales.
In Hot as Hell in Heaven, Montgomery Church offer rich imagery to surround the perspective of an ex-con, who finds the world to be deceptive and confronting. Cielle Montgomery’s vocal commands over a subtle and hypnotic train rhythm on acoustic guitar, set against the growl of James Church’s dobro and the clash of chain-gang percussion.

Other tracks by Montgomery Church:  Your Troubled Mind  -  The Stillman
