      Sydney indie-chamber group Hinterlandt presents its brand new album ‘Ode to Doubt’. Released in 2017 by indie-prog label, Art as Catharsis, ‘Ode to Doubt’ celebrates the notion of doubt as a healthy basis for critical thinking. The album was conceived as one piece of purely acoustic music spanning 40 minutes across seven movements. Three fine vocal duets are embedded in the otherwise instrumental composition. Music and words written and arranged specifically for this ensemble by German-born musician and composer, Jochen Gutsch. The full ‘Ode to Doubt’ set was first presented at Mona Foma festival in Hobart in January 2017.
      Stylistically, the music of Hinterlandt is diverse and progressive, with a narrative and engaging quality. On stage and in recordings, Hinterlandt has taken on a variety of shapes and colours, with this most recent incarnation featuring violins, cello, trumpet, guitar, piano, some vocals and several percussion instruments. Hinterlandt has performed internationally, including shows in London, Berlin, Bangkok, Melbourne, Hamburg, Jakarta, Helsinki, Kuala Lumpur, Cologne, Singapore, Rome, Amsterdam, Brisbane, Lisbon, and of course Sydney. In addition, twelve studio albums were released on a range of underground labels.

      Robbie Boyd

      Robbie Boyd is back with his stunning second offering ‘Break The Chain’ – bursting with soulful, heartfelt songs that showcase Robbie at his finest. New single Hey Girl’ is an empowering love song for everyone. It’s an instantly loveable and catchy pop song, free from any pretence and full of joy. Following the success of his debut album
      ‘So Called Man’, ‘Break The Chain’ is an exploration of love, self-discovery and relationships and is Robbie’s most raw and real collection of songs to date.


      Robbie has performed his songs live on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ twice, been regularly aired on BBC Radio 2 by the likes of Graham Norton, Paul O’Grady and Jeremy Vine, and is currently on his fifth European Tour, before going to Australia in March, having previously toured America, Argentina and Japan. He’s supported artists like The Kooks, McFly,
      Jack Garratt
      , Mark Ronson, Jack Savoretti and Daughter. He’s even had Suggs open up for him! Robbie’s co-written with the legendary Ray Davies, and written and recorded with some of Nashville’s finest. He’s also been aired on BBC 6 Music, Absolute Radio and Xfm. Robbie’s toured the UK several times with sold out headline London shows at venues like Bush Hall, The Garage and the Jazz Café. He’s performed at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, and was the first Brit to ever perform on the roof of the
      O2 Arena. Robbie and his band have played at the Isle of Wight Festival, Bestival, Somersault, Wilderness, Great Escape and Standon Calling to name a few.


      ‘Break The Chain’ draws on Robbie’s broad range of musical influences, and features 11 beautifully crafted songs, decorated with gorgeous melodies and thought-provoking lyrics, reminiscent of Van Morrison, John Mayer and Bombay Bicycle Club. The tight harmonies and instantly memorable tunes, demonstrate Robbie’s refreshingly bright outlook, combining his smooth vocals with his band’s powerful folk-driven groove. Once again Robbie delivers an eclectic mix of toe-tapping anthems, sensitive ballads, and his notorious sing-along refrains, all the while retaining his warmth and optimism, with a fresh sense of energy and playfulness thrown into the mix.


      Robbie’s uplifting songs have captivated a worldwide audience and his success is a confirmation of the many hours he spent busking on the streets of London, Europe and America where he honed his craft, along with the hundreds of shows he’s played around the world, and the passion and purpose with which he works. Robbie’s talented band of like-minded minstrels, add to the festivities whenever they play live, filling each venue with good-time vibes. Their performances have been raved about in The Times, Telegraph, Evening Standard and Time Out, with online support coming from the likes of
      Huffington Post, Music Week and Rolling Stone.

      The Tambourine Girls

      The Tambourine Girls announce the release of their near-eponymous track ‘The Tambourine Girl’, the second single from their forthcoming debut album.


      The mythology of the muse is woven through the fabric of pop culture. Twiggy. Marilyn Munroe. Christie Brinkley. And The Tambourine Girl. “She dances and I follow and when I wake up I am empty, so I fill myself up and do it all again.”– Simon Relf, The Tambourine Girls


      Relf’s ode to his muse is suitably euphoric, with undertones of self-destruction. ‘The Tambourine Girl’ is a beguiling throwback that wouldn’t be out of place in an underground music hall of eras gone by. Produced by Tim Whitten (Powderfinger, The Go-Betweens) it’s nostalgic, twinged with Americana and psych-rock. ‘The Tambourine Girl’ is designed to soundtrack a covert dance in a dark corner – away from prying eyes.


      The track follows on from the success of The Tambourine Girls’ recent single ‘Police’, which racked up over 260k spins on Spotify. The band, created by former Deep Sea Arcade guitarist Simon Relf, will perform a run of exclusive shows on the East Coast in September and will release their debut LP later this year.

      Fiona Boyes

      Fiona Boyes, an Australian blues guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter, has been recording and performing for more than 25 years, building a career that has taken her to major festivals and stages around the world.  A veteran recording artist with 13 releases, Australia’s first lady of the Blues has 5 USA Blues Music Award nominations in 4 different categories, and more than 30 Australian music awards, spanning the blues, folk, jazz and Americana scenes. Fiona’s immersion in the wide musical and historical traditions that make up the Blues and her deep love of the art-form itself lends conviction and authenticity to her playing and songwriting.


      Fiona began her career as a Blues artist when she won an Australian made Maton guitar in a local coffee shop talent show.  During the early years she honed her skills with all female band, The Mojos, who went on to become one of Australia’s premier blues acts, with 5 recordings to their credit.  In 2000 Fiona released her debut solo recording, which won Australian Blues Album, Female Artist, and Song of the Year awards.  Her international career took off in 2003 when she won the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, the first woman and first non-American to be so honored.  Since then she has released numerous award winning albums and maintained a busy international touring schedule.

      Equally at home on acoustic or electric guitars, her repertoire is like a Blues travelogue. Listen to her play and you’ll hear pre-war Delta slide, wailing laments, single chord Mississippi Hills grooves, intricate and beautiful finger picking, rollicking New Orleans barrelhouse, greasy Memphis soul, driving classic Chicago sounds, the country stylings of Texas Swing, and the uptown sounds of the West Coast.  On her latest release – ‘Professin’ the Blues’ – Fiona digs deep into her love of acoustic blues guitar and songwriting: the roots of the Blues.  As her friend and mentor, the late, great Hubert Sumlin said. ‘She’s got it!  I’ve played with all of them – and she’s got it!’


      Constantly touring, Fiona divides her time between Australia, Nth America and Europe. Her home-away-from-home is Portland, Oregon, as she follows the festival seasons in both hemispheres. When she is back in Australia, Fiona lives on the Clarence River in northern NSW, with her husband Steve (aka The Preacher), a social activist and Anglican priest, and between them they share the joys of five children and eight grandchildren.

      Archer is an old time sing-song man. He works the fruit picking rounds, sits under the sky a lot and drives a car if he has to. He’s earned his singing spirit from the feet up with his many hours of being out with the country, getting it under his skin the only real way you can.

      Archer has a pared-back honest clarity and strength of presence

      that stand him apart. He sings up the land, its people and animals, in a way that’s seldom heard today; with all of himself, without artifice, with dark humour

      and real beauty. He sounds like he’s been singing for a hundred years and

      will still be singing it in a hundred more just the same. There’s no

      one else doing it like Archer.

      Archer has toured widely across Canada, Australia and New Zealand playing many of its major festivals. He’s supported luminaries such as Martha Wainwright, Pokey Le Farge and CW Stoneking. Despite this you might find it hard to catch him. He’ll appear off a road somewhere and sing you a few songs and then wander off into a forest leaving you wondering if it was a ghost story or a dream.

      His debut album ‘Old Time Sing Song Man’ was released on Pound Records in 2015 and he now releases his much anticipated 7 inch ‘My little Sweet Aussie Sweetheart’.

      The Escalators

      With more grooves than a record store, The Escalators tip their fedoras to the sophistication of Swing, the

      funk of New Orleans, & the rhythmic pulse of Jamaica.
      The Escalators cross-pollinate great jazz standards with groove-driven genres, and graft original compositions

      onto swing, soul & reggae roots.

      After hundreds of shows together, The Escalators can hold listeners spell-bound at a ‘hear-a-pin-drop’ house concert, or have the floorboards in a School of Arts Hall heaving under the weight of unhinged dancing.

      The gorgeous tone of Jenny Blunden’s voice embraces you & steals your heart while Lachlan Mackenzie’s guitar weaves with pick-pocket grace through a rhythmic framework rich in interplay between Bradley Parsons’ upright bass & the drum kit captained by Hayden Moore.

      The band’s second release ‘From The Hip’ (2016) was recorded during a peak touring period at the legendary ‘Music Farm’ (Byron Bay) with industry heavyweight Paul Pilsneniks, & a ‘live in the studio’ philosophy. The record breathes, feeling fresh & alive. You are ‘in the room’ with a band sharpened by time on the road.

      Debut release ‘Felix’ (2014) was a concept record that set a course for the band: Classic songs from the 1930s to the 1960s infused with fresh flavours from all corners of their record collection. ‘The Girl From Ipanema’ is a Brazilian beauty on a Jamaican holiday. ‘The Sound of Music’ is a funky soundtrack to a 1970s car chase.

      East Coast Festivals (Noosa Jazz, Manly Jazz, Kiama Jazz & Blues, Granite Town) & tours have been a second home, including sold out shows in theatres, galleries, boat-sheds, arts halls, and surf shops in every town in between!

      In Autumn 2017 The Escalators are on the road again, with a new 7” vinyl single ‘Jungle Jive’ on cool airwaves everywhere.

      James Bennett

      James Bennett was born at Byron Bay Hospital in 1992. At the tender age of 6 months James father decided to move the family (James, Mum and his 3 siblings 2 brothers and a sister) deep into the remote mountainous wilderness of the rain forest hinterland of far Northern NSW,Australia.
      They set up makeshift camp 80kms (50 miles) outside the nearest town Lismore.Here the Bennett’s lived a solitary existence off the grid no contact with civilisation in total isolation for the next 14 years.
      Their ramshackle dwelling was a corrugated iron shack an abode hacked out of bush with bare hands they bathed in a nearby creek grew assorted vegetables and lived off the land.James during his 14 years in exile miraculously survived two potentially fatal snakebites, malaria and dysentery.James an outcast had never watched TV there was no cell phone, radio, zero access to the outside world.James and his brothers and sisters were taught to read and write by their mother, educated alone in the bush.
      James first contact with the outside world was when 10 years old while his father
      was making a rare visit to a distant growers market James secretly managed to hook up a truck battery to a 12 volt amp on a old black and white TV foraged from
      an abandoned homestead.James and his siblings first introduction to the outside world was a grainy frosted image of Homer J Simpson patriarch of the Simpsons TV show.This event was soon followed by a chance meeting with a hiker who played Bob Dylan on his headphones.
      In the blazing Summer of 2005 immersed in the oppressive equatorial type heat
      and humidity of the forest with the camp now over run with giant rats and nests
      of snakes,James mother dishevelled and desperate made a break for civilisation fleeing with her children to the safety of Mid North Coast town of Port Macquarie
      As James and his family began transitioning into their new lives, adjusting proved a struggle for James and his siblings.James sheltered life left him disconnected and confused a victim of incomprehensible events.Now a teenager concealing deep psychological wounds James set about with his trademark intensity of having survived one wilderness to coping with a new equally confronting environment. James loaded with gentleness and goodwill eventually made friends, learnt to socialise and play guitar he also began to surf.James awkwardness was masked by his love of the ocean and although emotionally fragile he gradually reentered society. James then set about pouring his creative energies into writing the soundtrack to his life.A naturally gifted vocalist James is a self taught virtuoso
      guitar player and a mesmerising lyricist.James also has been offered full sponsorship as a professional surfer. It’s through his music James documents his significant burden a wellspring of deep introspection balanced with a starry eyed optimism.

      Bob Evans

      Bob Evans, the ARIA winning alter ego of Jebediah frontman Kevin Mitchell, has today announced an extensive national Australian tour, hitting up capital cities and regional towns across April, May and June, letting fans know he’ll be treating them to a complimentary six track EP, Zeroes To Heroes, of unreleased material for all tickets purchased from his website and online outlets. After the release of his critically acclaimed LP Car Boot Sale, and following a packed out co-headline tour alongside Josh Pyke in late 2016, the Lonesome Highways Tour will kick off at Front Bar in Canberra on April 20, before moving through Newcastle, Central Coast, Katoomba, Sydney, Cronulla, Bulli, Toowoomba, Bellingen, Brisbane, Rye, Melbourne, Geelong, Adelaide, and wrapping in Castlemaine at the Bridge Hotel on June 9.

      Gracing the Australian music scene for more than two decades, Mitchell is a self-confessed romantic who has written some of the country’s most beloved songs. Under the alias of Bob Evans, Mitchell has released five albums, all of which showcase the versatility and skill of this talented songsmith. Gentle, acoustic melodies prevail, enveloping the classic folk storytelling and strong emotional pull that charactises Mitchells’ substantial body of work. Reflecting on his remarkable career, the ever-humble Mitchell says, “I never could have forseen where all of this was going to lead way back when I was a teenager just starting out, making an almighty racket with Jebediah. I have been gifted a pretty amazing life and career and I still get such a huge buzz out of it. Knowing there are people out there who have been supporting me for years and years just blows me away and makes me want to be better.”
      And what is to be expected from this run of shows? Mitchell hints at what’s in store for excited audiences, “These are all going to be intimate shows so it will be very up close and personal. I’ll be playing songs from across all of my records, a few covers too… I’ll take requests and then screw them up. We’ll all be firm friends by the end of the night.”
      Tickets to the Lonesome Highways Tour will go on sale on March 10 at 10am and all ticket purchases from www.bobevans.com.au and other online outlets will receive an exclusive six track EP of unreleased material.

      Jeff Lang

      Jeff Lang releases his brand new CD ‘Alone In Bad Company’ February 24th, 2017 and announces national tour March – June.

      In a career spanning twenty- five years and at least as many recordings, Alone In Bad Company is Jeff Lang’s momentous new album which presents the most organic union of Lang’s talents and influences yet. Released through ABC Music on February 24th this year Alone In Bad Company is filled with exquisitely sung stories and melodies demonstrating that, Lang is nothing if not a lover of song.

      The first single from the album is ‘Burnside’ which immediately highlights Lang’s proficiency as one of Australia’s best guitarists with rapid fingerpicking and guitar work. Each song on the album is rendered such that an alternative approach is unimaginable and each time Lang steps up to solo, his hard-won style is unmistakable – fluid but with an edge-of-the-seat recklessness.

      Acoustic fingerpicking, slide guitar, electric lead, banjos, mandolins and blue-eyed soul singing drop into place like puzzle pieces in a portrait conceived and executed almost entirely by the artist. Steadfast cohorts Danny McKenna and Allison Ferrier deliver on cue and master writer Don Walker shares his peerless wit on two songs, including the pointedly titled ‘With You I Can Throw Away The Pills’, a bitter-suite finale.

      In the end, Alone In Bad Company presents one of our most inspired musicians – and songwriters – at the peak of his exceptional powers.

      To celebrate the release of his new album, Lang will launch Alone In Bad Company with a national tour through March, April, May and June 2017.

      Alone in Bad Company is released through ABC Music on February 24th 2017

      Daniel Champagne is good. Very very good. You may already know this but if not it’s time to get on board with this astonishing talent. The Australian born, Nashville based singer/songwriter and one of a kind guitar virtuoso is about to release his first studio album in three years and perform an extensive list of Australian dates on what seems to be beginning to rival Bob Dylan in the never ending world tour stakes.

      By way of background the story goes that a five year old Daniel first picked up a guitar after being inspired by a musical father, wrote his first songs at twelve, trained classically throughout his teens and began playing anywhere and everywhere he could around the far south coast of New South Wales It was here that he began to hone the astonishing live show he is renowned for today.

      At eighteen Daniel left school, hit the road and hasn’t really stopped since. Really hasn’t stop and seems to rarely pause to draw breath. Subsequent years saw him tour endlessly around the world, playing some of the most renowned festivals and sharing stages with the likes of Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, Rodrigo y Gabriella, The Waifs, Judy Collins, INXS, John Butler and KT Tunstall – all of this while writing, producing and independently releasing four albums and two EPs.

      In 2014 Daniel made the move to America, basing himself out of Nashville and beginning to spread his music to all corners of the country where he played night after night, city after city, forever expanding and developing his craft and skills and digging deeper into his life experience as a songwriter. The culmination of this range of experiences to date are the songs on ‘Fault Lines’

      Recorded over a two year period, in Nashville for the most part during rare breaks from his American tour schedule and some closer to home sessions in Melbourne and the South Coast of NSW – ‘Fault Lines’ sees the troubadour branch out from behind his well know solo guitar and voice styling’s to explore a much broader sonic landscape throughout the thirteen pieces.

      ‘I’d say it’s more like an extension of what I do rather than another side’ says Champagne of his new offering

      ‘I mean, I know a lot of people know me as the high energy guitar player and that element will always be there. I will always love interesting guitar playing as long at it serves the songs, which are what this album is all about because between what’s around me and what’s inside me there’s always so much to write about. I come across a lot of people and places touring this world non-stop and they all come with their own stories that can wind their way into song.

      ‘So on the album, there certainly are moments where it is just me and a guitar, as I am every night on stage but there are also some big rock songs and elaborate string arrangements and electric playing and piano and I really think it takes the listener on a journey both musically and lyrically and I’m excited to show everyone what we’ve done and hope they can find themselves somewhere inside the picture’





      ‘Fault Lines’ will be released worldwide on March 20 through his own label Nightingale Records’. Its unveiling will come on the eve of a North American tour that will play out before Daniel returns to his homeland for what will be his most extensive tour yet – forty shows from April to July taking him to all corners of Australia and surely confirming him as a leading light in acoustic music with a reputation for making festivals buzz, holding crowds in his palm, dropping jaws and breaking guitars wherever he goes.





      “The word Prodigy seems to entirely fall short of this soft-spoken young man’s skills, he coaxes sounds and melodies out of his instrument that literally drop jaws.” The Calgary Herald, CANADA


      “Today I saw the future of Folk – Festival goers flocking in their thousands towards the main stage to witness a young musical phenomenon from Australia dish out an absolute show-stopper.”

      The Firefly Column, USA


      “Daniel Champagne is a crossroads. Fusing the strong traditions of Blues, Folk and other roots art with pop showmanship and admirable lyrical ability. I firmly believe that he will become an ambassador for roots music in a time where it desperately needs representation.”

      The Indie Blender, CANADA


      “reinventing roots guitar”

      Rhythms Magazine, AUSTRALIA


      “Watching Daniel Champagne perform is a once in a lifetime experience. He is a true prodigy that plays like no one else could possibly play unless they spent at least two lifetimes studying the art.” BW Review, NEW ZEALAND


      ‘Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical’ Themusic.com.au, AUSTRALIA
