LUCILLE 'COME ON, FLY'

“… a unique voice and approach to songwriting that is global and wonderous in its expression.” – Triple J Unearthed
“…an eclectic, fascinating artist with considerable talent.” – Jolene, the Country Music Blog
"Hypnotic, disconcerting and beautiful in equal measure" - The Music Network
"An artist showing her true voice" - Independent Australia

‘Come On, Fly’ is the 2nd single and title track from Melbourne singer-songwriter Lucille’s upcoming debut album. The song acknowledges that we as humanity are not learning from history’s lessons, with the cycle of hate, division, and destruction continuing unabated. Lucille explores the notion that there must be a better way.

Lucille, was born in West Berlin, ‘in a city that no longer exists’, which was a place that epitomised division to an almost comic extent. Lucille explains, “they split it with a concrete wall. Neighbours became not only strangers but violent enemies. What a farce. And we look back and say, “how dreadful” but we continue to build walls today – literally and metaphorically. What history tells us though, is that walls never last.” Think Hadrian, the Great Wall of China, The Berlin Wall; any effort spent on building walls now (Palestine/Israel; USA/Mexico) is completely wasted energy. Lucille believes, “if one learns to fly, walls lose their meaning, utterly and completely.”

Sara O’Connor ‘Dark All Day’ music video

CLICK ON THE ABOVE IMAGE TO VIEW THE FULL MUSIC VIDEO

Sara O’Connor has released the music video for ‘Dark All Day’, the title track of her most release album. The music video was shot in Tamworth during the 2020 Country Music Festival by Michael Carpenter of Sydney’s Love Hz Studios.

“Don’t live like darkness lasts forever, summer comes and shadows turn to light”

This line was written in late 2019. The song itself is about how dark times or emotions always have the capability to evolve into the light. Sara wanted the song to take a hopeful turn with this verse, to use the metaphor of the seasons to reflect the way in which our lives and emotions can change for the better too.

The cover artwork for “Dark All Day” was created by Archibald Prize winning artist Wendy Sharpe. Sara, Wendy and her partner Bernard Ollis, met onboard a ship bound for the North Pole. During that journey Wendy and Bernard painted constantly, while Sara stood by in awe, but she was also creating… new music for this album.

Apart from the album artwork there is another magnificent link between Wendy and the album. On the back of the ship one afternoon, Wendy and Sara chatted about what it must be like living in the Arctic during winter when there is 24 hours of darkness. They talked about what it must do to your psyche when it’s dark all day and all night. That moment was the beginning of the title track on the album; ‘Dark All Day’. After that conversation with Wendy, Sara went back to her cabin and wrote the song.

More info about Sara O’Connor:
• A vocalist fronting jazz outfits for 20 years and has performed all over Australia
• Performed at Australian iconic venues including The Enmore Theatre in Sydney, The Tivoli in Brisbane and Melbourne’s Forum Theatre
• Introduced to the genre by her country-loving partner Ben Soutter and to the industry by none other than Melinda Schneider
• Introduced by a mutual musical friend, Melinda took the time to chat long-distance with Sara while at the G’Day USA party in Los Angeles. Sara has high praise for the Golden Guitar winning artist insisting, _“I don’t think Melinda realises that she mentored me in that one conversation”

‘Viking’ new single from Innocent Eve

‘Viking’ is the new single from Central Queensland sisters Rachel and Bec Olsson aka Innocent Eve.

A cautionary tale, ‘Viking’ is the realisation that you’re falling for the wrong person but fall anyway. It’s about feeling foolish when the inevitable happens.

The sister act once again entrusted their musical baby with producer Matt Fell. ‘Viking’ is the title track of the upcoming album of the same name to be released mid-2020.

Aside from new music, 2020 will see Rachel and Bec heading out on a run of live shows. This month sees them at the Tamar Valley Folk Festival, followed by the Tamworth Country Music Festival and a bunch of shows close to home in Wowan, Central Queensland in February. March brings appearances at KC’s in Airlie Beach and Cape Gloucester Music Festival while April’s highlight will be the first night headline spot at the Boyne Valley Country Music Campout. More dates to follow.

Sara O'Connor - Sleepwalking.mp3

SARA O’CONNOR ‘SLEEPWALKING’

Sara O’Connor, a new face to Australian country music was introduced to the genre by her country-loving partner Ben Soutter and to the industry by none other than Melinda Schneider. Introduced by a mutual musical friend, Melinda took the time to chat long-distance with Sara while at the G’Day USA party in Los Angeles. Sara has high praise for the Golden Guitar winning artist insisting, “I don’t think Melinda realises that she mentored me in that one conversation”.

Sara has an impressive musical CV – a vocalist fronting jazz outfits for 20 years she has performed all over Australia including at The Enmore Theatre in Sydney, The Tivoli in Brisbane and Melbourne’s Forum Theatre. Covering artists from Billie Holliday to Blondie, Sara was intrigued when her band’s double-bass player suggested she check out the Texan Swing genre. She loved it so much and with the almost-encyclopaedic country music knowledge of partner Ben, Sara made the very comfortable move to country music.

The Sydney based artist has now recorded a four-track EP titled “Rollin’”. Sara’s stories are shared with lyricist, Terresa Marie Allen – the pair met on a ship in Antarctica, where they were helping raise money for "Love Your Sister" – the charity created by actor Sam Johnson. The tracks were then developed by the pair along with Peter Bailey (composer, arranger, producer and active jazz musician) and the EP’s producer Phil Stack (ARIA award winning bass player for Thirsty Merc).

‘Sleepwalking’ the first single from the EP recalls a period in Sara’s life when she was regularly performing across the country in front of huge audiences at casinos and convention centres. The problem was she felt she had fallen into a routine with the act and was creatively uninspired. Sara was performing but it was almost like she was ‘sleepwalking’ through the activity. Realising there are lots of things we all do in life where we feel that way; shopping, attending meetings, feeding the kids, paying the bills etc. Sara appreciated that everyone can relate to this from time to time. Hence the chorus “I’m upright, I’m talking, but I’m only sleepwalking”.

The Great Unknown - Jade Gibson.mp3

JADE GIBSON 'THE GREAT UNKNOWN'

‘The Great Unknown’ is the debut single from Wangaratta, Victoria born and raised artist Jade Gibson. While Jade might be a new face to some, at almost 21, she has been playing cover shows since she was just 14 years old and has now played over 400 shows.

Keith Urban, Dixie Chicks and Fleetwood Mac helped a younger Jade dream of becoming a country-pop artist and someday releasing original music. 2016 and 2017 saw the singer-songwriter find love from the Victorian and New South Wales BnS Ball crowds playing alongside some of Australia's most popular country music acts such as The Wolfe Brothers, Travis Collins and Christie Lamb.

‘The Great Unknown’ is all about being young, exploring our big beautiful world and was initially inspired by Jade’s biggest musical influence, Keith Urban and his summer-tinted hits.

This debut single is the title track and opener of Jade’s five track EP to be released on Friday April 12th.

Jason Owen – New Single ‘These Are The Times’

Jason Owen is a country boy through and through, growing up 150km west of Dubbo in the small community of Albert in Central NSW.

Jason understands just how hard it must be for everyone on the land during this difficult time. The hardship being experienced by the farmers has touched Jason immensely and is offering assistance in his own way. Putting pen to paper, Jason is hoping to raise much needed funds with his new single, ‘These Are The Times’.

100% of profits from single sales will go to charity group The Burrumbuttock Hay Runners to assist them in getting more trucks and feed for livestock back on the road. Jason contacted the group’s inspirational founder Brendan Farrell to work in collaboration with the group that delivers donated hay to drought-affected farmers around Australia.

Jason has recently closed out the successful “Jason Owen Sings John Denver Tour” in regional NSW where 100% of profits from the Temora and Dubbo shows were donated to The Burrumbuttock Hay Runners.

“My heart will always lie in the country and every dollar counts”, says Jason.
“It’s a very difficult time for a lot of people on the land and I’m proud to be a part of all the people helping to raise a dollar to help where it’s needed”.

‘These Are The Times’ was launched on Channel Nine’s ‘Farm Aid Telethon’ today. Jason was invited to perform alongside Adam Harvey, Shannon Noll, James Reyne, Wendy Matthews and more in Dubbo NSW. This special event was arranged to raise more money to support our farmers by Nine’s Drought Relief Appeal which has raised an astounding $4,243,146 since its launch on August 2.

“DREAM CHASER” DEBUT EP FROM KYLIE RYAN

“Dream Chaser” debut EP from Kylie Ryan is out now!

“Dream Chaser”, the debut EP from emerging country music artist Kylie Ryan is a mix of cleverly crafted song lyrics, a generous helping of infectious melodies, blended with lavish amounts of rock, pop and rockabilly influences coupled with her own unique style.

Born in the northern NSW town of Inverell and living in Wagga Wagga and Chiang Mai, Thailand before settling in Sydney, it’s quite literally been a long, winding road in the journey for the songstress who counts Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert and Shania Twain as some of her biggest influences. Always a writer, be it stories, poems or songs, the self-confessed late starter in the industry, credits music as helping her through some of the tumultuous times in her life.

Becoming a mother at an early age put a hold on the singer/songwriter’s dreams and she believed the possibility of a future in music had perhaps passed her by. A career crossroads coupled with the urging of her husband led Kylie to rethink this decision and she decided it was high time she chased after her long-held dream.

“Dream Chaser” is a catchy blend of traditional and modern country, opening with the first single, ‘Got Me In’, a positive, upbeat pop infused track, before moving into the powerful, rock driven anthemic ‘Slow Me Down’, which was nominated for a 2017 ASA song-writing award. ‘That’s Our Love Song’ is a rockabilly-blues peppered love song. Kylie changes pace and offers us a personal insight into her life with the deeply moving and emotional, “In Spite of You”; the EP closes with “Everytime” a fun, fast paced party song co‑written with producer Stewart Peters of Blue Mountains based Soundshed Music Productions.

“Dream Chaser” is out now

Available on iTunes, GooglePlay, Spotify, CDBaby & KylieRyanMusic.com
