Jake and the Cowboys - She Said     Pop, Rock, Australian Indigenous 23/10/2015
Don’t be fooled by the name – there’s no Jake nor obvious western theme. A gifted lyric, definable vocal, melody and a passion for performing define Jake and the Cowboys.
'She Said' was successfully crowdfunded by our fans and recorded/produced by Eskimo Joe's Joel Quartermain. Written about those who dream of brighter pastures - the song is light hearted, happy and will have you dancing and attempting to clap from the outset.

Indigenous Australian Soul Queen Emma Donovan pairs with Tim Rogers, Joelistics and Archie Roach to bring you deep soul tunes with her fire band The PutBacks.
Blackfella Whitefella, the country rock epic written by George Rrurrambu and Neil Murray in 1985, feels more relevant than ever 30 years on. 2015 is, in so many ways, becoming a critical year in relations between Aboriginal Australia and the broader community.
