“On The Road” is a classic rock powerhouse with modern flair. Written while camped on the banks of the ancient Finke River, the song is a testimony to Sam’s adventure around Oz in a clapped-out caravan and failing car.

Inspired by California daze, desert surrounding the city of sin, cowboys, moon landing and the alter ego in which BEAU LIGHTNING resides. Rock'n roll is the name of the game.
It’s a break up song essentially, there’s been millions of them, but it’s an impossible topic to avoid as a song writer or an artist when you have recently gone through one.

Other tracks by Beau Lightning:  Last Night  -  In My Hands
Bluey - No Plans     Rock 30/08/2019
Taking inspiration from artists such as Alex G, Beach Fossils and Elliot Smith, Bluey combines tightly structured pop melodies with swirling synths to create a sound that is refreshingly unique.
‘No Plans’ is the first cut from my debut EP and came about at the beginning of the year when I was feeling beaten up and disheartened about my prior creative endeavours. It’s about the realisation of self worth and the comfort of having someone stick by you through the tough times.

S.J. Smith - Shinjuku Love Hotel     Rock, Indie, Alternative, Experimental 30/08/2019
S.J. Smith makes indie-rock music that's sometimes dreamy, sometimes punchy, and sometimes downright chaotic. He has spent the last two years quietly working on an upcoming debut self-released album.
‘Shinjuku Love Hotel’ combines Smith’s darker than usual vocals, hazy guitar tones and a cacophony of squealing sax, the piece is catchy, propulsive and at times pleasantly chaotic. It is the second single from a forthcoming debut album, scheduled for self-release in late 2019.

Silent Feature - On Your Hands     Rock, Experimental, Grunge, Garage 30/08/2019
Experimental 4 piece from Brisbane.
Drawing influence from lo-fi artists the likes of Beck, Iggy Pop, or Tom Waits, On Your Hands similarly wouldn't be out of place on a Jim Jarmusch film soundtrack. Littered with industrial percussion, grinding guitars, and dirty vocals – it’s about as pleasant as a punch to the throat.

The Electric Mistress - I Found You Out     Rock, Funk 30/08/2019
4 piece band hailing from Brisbane. Debut E.P. out on all digital platforms Sept 1st. Think fat heavy grooves, synths, 90’s guitars, melodic hooks, catchy choruses and heartfelt vocals….
The song is about infidelity within a relationship. Boy meets Girl. Girl likes Boy. Boy likes Girl. Girl not getting what she wants from Boy. Girl cheats. Boy doesn’t. Boy finds out. Girl blames Boy.

‘…this has the funk and strut of a modern day Terence Trent D'arby.’
