      Toni Swain

      “Few performers in Australia can match Toni Swain…her musicianship and stage presence is awesome enough; then, there’s her voice which reaches right in and grabs you by the heart and soul. Her sets are built around solid rhythms that rollick and sway while the songs provide a distinctive spotlight on everyday life. She is that good, she makes it look easy.” (Bones Mackinnon, 3SER, 97.7FM)

      Playing original jazz, blues and folk music, Toni Swain and her trusted band (Roy Payne – guitar/lap steel, Mike Rix – upright bass, Ric McCann – drums) have been touring Australia promoting the new album “The Red Shed”. Songs written by “candlelight and wine” in an off-grid, corrugated iron shed in the isolated Tasmanian bush.

      The true art in Toni’s music lies in her live performance, where humility and subtlety bridle at odds with an unstoppable force of nature – that voice, that clarion-rising. Just when you think you’re on easy street riding a tested hook and a melody Toni takes it all to a higher place, it’s rightful place, and suddenly everything is well in the world, for that one perfect and unforgettable moment in song.

      To hear Toni Swain live is to fall in love with a voice and a soul swelling with warmth and the urge to rise joyfully above our every-days.

    • Steve Tyson 1500 x 1500

      Friday 5th December

      Steve Tyson


      Steve Tyson’s debut solo album TEMPLE DOG, released in 2011, was a collection of eclectic folk songs, that resonated with critics in Australia. Inspired by a lifetime of  extensive travels through exotic locations such as India, Japan and Russia, this set of extraordinary songs drew 4 star reviews in the national music press.


      With a musical pedigree that includes supporting legendary rockers Status Quo on a 31 date tour of the UK, plus six European tours and seven albums with Australian folk-rock band Rough Red, Tyson has mined his well of experience to create his follow-up album GREEN SIDE UP. For much of the inspiration for this new record, Steve had to look no further than his family history, with stories of his great-grandmother’s tough life in rural Queensland, his great uncle’s imprisonment and escape during the Great War, and his French ancestors’ perilous encounter with murder, intertwined with matters of the heart, stories from the road, and a healthy dose of black humour.


      Steve Tyson delivers live with passion, soul, humour, and fine musicianship, with longtime bandmates, The New Felons.

      Wednesday 10th December


      Timberwolf is the modern folk project and performing alias of Chris Panousakis, a blues/rock inspired 22 year-old singer/songwriter from Adelaide. Putting his physiotherapy career on the backburner, Chris has taken the next few years off to focus purely on music. With strong roots in 60s/70s blues and rock, his take on modern folk music emulates soulful but cryptic songwriting, complemented by a melodic blend of guitars and vocals.

      David Flower and Caroline Trengove

      David Flower And Caroline Trengove are two much loved individual performers and between them have played music festivals and venues across the country. It was at a tropical Queensland festival they crossed paths and now join together crossing styles for a intriguing and delightful music match.

      Chemistry emanates as they stoke their musical fire with David’s guitar feels of folk to reggae n funk, harmonica hooks, stomp and wah wah, with
      Caroline’s colours of violin, flute, nylon guitar and percussion creating an all acoustic warm sound for their two impressive voices to shine in harmony. Its a grand sound from this duo and the man-woman dynamic is well explored and enjoyed to the delight of their audience.

      David’s new song ‘Cheney’s Poison Slice’ brings forth David’s social comment on the Coal seam gas industry with his ability to sing about a serious issue with a humorous edge he gets the message out into the public arena currently censored heavily by in his eyes a brutal hard right government. Caroline features on Flute and Harmonies amongst other concerned musicians contributing to this song of awareness.

      The tour south to Tasmania and back will feature this opening single and other songs off the new album coming early 2015.

      Tora – Eat The Sun Tour

      TORA stand out. In a country that boasts an ever-growing and internationally-acclaimed electronic music scene the boys from Byron Bay have earnt their place as one of Australia’s most promising young acts. In October they return with ‘Admire’, the new single that also heralds the imminent release of their sophomore EP ‘Eat The Sun’, which features the titular single ‘Eat The Sun’ and ‘Overcome ft. Merran Jeann’.


      The band’s achievements speak for themselves. In the past six months TORA have racked up more than a million plays online, performed at Australia’s most-coveted music festival Splendour in the Grass courtesy of Triple J and toured nationally alongside Miami Horror in addition to earning praise from the international music media including The Sound You NeedHilly Dilly, A Crack in the Road and Indie Shuffle with the latter having said:


      With influences ranging from Bon Iver to Little Dragon and SOHN, their music is lushly soothing and effortlessly smooth”.
      ‘Admire’ presents as TORA’s most considered track so far, indicative of what remains up their sleeve on the upcoming EP. Rooted in enveloping synths and flickering percussive samples that give way to something loosely structured and considerably darker than their previous releases. Vocally the song is anchored by an expertly crafted hook that retains TORA’s soul whilst adding rich harmonies throughout.

      Steve Smyth

      After Steve’s first two Exits singles ‘Shake It’ and ‘Written Or Spoken’ being well received at community radio and  Double J, and his recent performance at Pigsty Festival where The Maitland Mercury declared he “stole the show with a mesmerising performance”, Steve returns from a month long tour in Spain in time to release Exits and get back on the Aussie road.

      From the streets of Barcelona to touring alongside the likes of The Killers, Angus and Julia Stone, Lanie Lane and Kim Churchill, Smyth has proven time and time again to be devastating in the live setting. A voice churned up in Bourbon soaked Louisiana gravel that soars to the heavens at times with its sweetness…after experiencing Steve Smyth, it’s tempting to compare him with some of the great vocalists of the past few decades.


      Don’t miss your chance to see Steve Smyth when he hits your town this August through December

      Original Sin

      Acoustic duo, Original Sin, cook up a country flavoured, stomping-blues original set of ‘blue-country deliciousness,’ mixed with a soulful revival of traditional gospel and blues, dredged up from the likes of Blind Willie Johnson and Memphis Minnie. The pair have been said to ‘transport you back to the Mississippi Delta,’ with their unencumbered, wholesome performance, founded on a driving beat, vibrant melodies, sweet harmonies and spirited guitar lines.
      Home-grown from the Central Coast of New South Wales, Original Sin comprises the unprocessed, honeyed vocals, of Ariel, urged on and encouraged by the tireless guitar picking and sweet harmonies of Jordan, the combination possessing a lilting honesty. After years of pursuing solo projects, Original Sin’s eclectic talents can be heard throughout – Jordan occupies his boundless skill with a wide range of instruments and span of genres – including currently drumming with psychedelic rock outfit Bad Valley. Ariel tinkers with vastly varied musical projects and has featured in collaborations with hip hop and Folk/Rock artists.
