NEW MUSIC: ‘FRIENDS LIKE YOU’ FROM KRISTY JAMES

12112356_10207548101642079_9016377349532809435_n‘Friends Like You’, the latest single from Kristy James, is an edgy, catchy and fast moving tale of best friends who confide in and trust each other. But inevitably it ends bitterly. The story behind the song is filled with raw emotion when she finds out that the other woman is in fact her best friend.

The singer-songwriter has once again called upon the talents of ARIA award winning producer Simon Johnson at Hillbilly Hut. ‘Friends Like You’ is the first single from Kristy’s upcoming debut album.

Being a part of the music industry for as long as she can remember, Kristy made her start at the Steel City Country Music Club with the likes of Catherine Britt and Kirsty Lee Akers. She won her first quest – The Junior Junior Vocal at just 11 years old. The artist has since amassed over 60 trophies to her name.

In 2009, the Newcastle born and bred artist reached the first round finals of Telstra Road To Tamworth and then went on to release her debut single, ‘Overdrive’ followed by debut EP “Nobody’s Gonna Make Me”, which peaked at #2 on the iTunes Country Top Albums chart – only Taylor Swift kept her from the top spot. ‘Friends Like You’ has since matched that chart position on the iTunes Country Top Songs chart – this time the elusive #1 was foiled by Carrie Underwood.

Career highlights have included performing at the Port Stephens Country Music festival, Blue Water Country Music Festival, Central Coast Country Music Festival, Monkerai BnS, Ariah Park BnS and she can add Country At Caves to that list this weekend.

NEW MUSIC: ‘GOD GAVE ME WINGS’ – IAN BURNS

'God Gave Me Wings' - new single from Ian Burns at radio now!

‘God Gave Me Wings’ – new single from Ian Burns at radio now!

The new single, ‘God Gave Me Wings’ from Ian Burns is all about chasing your dreams and giving it 100%. This is the first single to be lifted from the new album “Want To Sing” which features another ten self-penned tracks.

Ian has once again used the talents of producer Doug Bruce at Shoo Fly Studios and musicians Mark D’Rozario on guitar, Rusty Cochrane on bass, Vaughan Jones on keys and David Spires on pedal steel. The producer himself is also on drums and backing vocals.

“There always will be mountains and there always will be walls and the ones who will succeed are the ones who’ll take the falls” – ‘God Gave Me Wings’, Ian Burns, February 2016

After busking on the streets of Tamworth at the Country Music Festival last year, Ian returned in 2016 with a jam-packed schedule. This comprised live radio interviews and performances including at three Tamworth Songwriters Association showcases.

Based in the Macarthur NSW region, Ian is an equine therapist by day. Using acupuncture and laser therapy to repair injured racehorses and performance horses, Ian ensures the animals are back competing as soon as possible. Multiple Olympic competition horses and Group 1 winning racehorses are amongst his clientele.

When he’s not working or singing, Ian enjoys competing in endurance horse riding – whereby competitors ride over distances of 80 – 160kms. Nowadays, Ian mainly competes over distances of 80 – 100kms but has previously successfully completed a “Tom Quilty”. This is a national endurance ride championship to be completed in under 24 hours and is run across difficult terrain over a distance of 160kms. Ian regards his “Quilty Buckle” as one of his proudest achievements.

The singer-songwriter released his debut EP “Good Friends” in January 2015 which included the radio single, ‘The Boundary Rider’. A video clip was made for this track by Paul Denham Imagery. Capturing stunning Australian landscapes while Ian rides stock horse ‘Maggie’ and is accompanied by a friend’s faithful companion ‘Boots’ – if you haven’t seen the clip, CLICK HERE 

 

“Want To Sing” will be officially launched on March 19th , 2016 at the K Ranch, Camden NSW

Muso Promotions Management

Golden Guitar-winner Warren H Williams is one of Australia’s most loved and highly decorated Aboriginal artists with a proud history of sharing his unique stories and culture through music to all Australians.

Williams has now collaborated with emerging artist Dani Young to write and produce a world-class album of very original and yet traditional-style country duets aptly named Desert Water (due for release in early 2016).

Williams and Young are debuting their new music at the 2016 Tamworth Country Music Festival on the 20th January with a live band and a string of Australia’s top artists as special guests.

Williams and Young bring an historic musical union to their sound and journey, being the first Black (Aboriginal) and White Australian duo to record an album in Nashville.

Produced by country music superstar Billy Yates, the album songs contain the universal themes of love and loss, family and friendship in a true country music sense and yet the music exemplifies the underlying spirit of cultural reconciliation synonymous to this pairing.

Listeners will be delighted by the rare and beautiful vocal harmony that has resulted from the blend of William’s unmistakably Aboriginal voice which embodies a distinctive and trademark huskiness along with Young’s honey tone and timeless lilt.
