A tearjerker, expressing a desperate feeling of not wanting to move on and instead feeling a spark and wanting to start again. A personal favourite as it's one of Jade's most honest songs to date.

ARUN O'CONNOR 'FOLLOWING THE LINE'

NEW ZEALAND GOLD GUITAR WINNER RELEASES DEBUT SINGLE

Hailing from Invercargill, near the southern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, Arun (pronounced Aaron) O’Connor was born into a musical family. The youngest of four brothers who have all followed in dad’s drumming footsteps, he instead deciding on the guitar, for his musical weapon of choice. Dad played for many celebrated local acts including NZ icon Tom Sharplin.

The singer-songwriter has been playing in bands since he was 15 years old and by the end of 2016, was working in music full-time, despite initially pursuing a career in the automotive trade. When Arun isn’t working on his own music you can find him fulfilling guitar duties for some of New Zealand’s finest, most notably often-dubbed ‘Queen Of Country’ Jody Direen – including a recent tour of their homeland and Australia.

In 2018 Arun seemed to dominate the NZ Gold Guitar Awards – he was awarded in “New Country”, “NZ Song” and “Male Vocal Solo” categories plus the big one, "Overall Senior". Having tried his luck at the NZ prestigious awards a few times before it was Arun’s performance of Chris Stapleton’s ‘Tennessee Whiskey’ that snared the big trophy haul. Arun insists choosing this particular song was no-brainer for him, "I just love it, Chris Stapleton sings it like it's an old country song but makes it new”. This philosophy can be heard in Arun’s original music.

In September that same year, as part of the awards’ prize package, Arun travelled to Nashville, TN and recorded his debut single. An original tune, written by the NZ native, ‘Following The Line’ is a song about pursuing what you truly want in life. It is about not doing something because that’s what is expected of you. After observing some friends in rough situations like bad relationships or jobs, who had decided it was the easy option to stay. The song celebrates breaking out of the easy life and doing what you love. Even if that, is the hardest thing to do.

Sara O’Connor

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.

Sally-Anne Whitten - You Can't Hide From A Broken Heart

Fresh from her Indie Country Music Australia awards win, Sally-Anne Whitten releases new single, ‘You Can’t Hide from a Broken Heart’. This new release is the 3rd single from the singer-songwriter’s award winning album “Burgundy Street”.

Sally-Anne’s new single, was co-written by fellow Tamworth artist, Allison Forbes and explores grief and loss. Having already booked a trip to the USA, when a list of death and disasters occurred for Sally-Anne’s family, she was in two minds about going. With no refunds available, the trip went ahead and the singer thought it would do her good to get away. The singer soon realised ‘you can't hide from a broken heart’, it will follow you everywhere.

“Burgundy Street” is a mixed bag when it comes to musical genre - Sally-Anne has yet again embraced her unique blend of swampy blues, R&B, southern rock and West Coast country. Over the years the artist has honed her very own style of ‘funky country’.

Sally-Anne was awarded Most Popular Female Artist and Most Popular Independent Album for 2018’s “Burgundy Street”. Producer/husband Alwyn Aurisch received the Most Popular Producer gong for the album of the same name, validating the term ‘keeping it in the family’! The awards were presented at the ICMA (Indie Country Music Australia) Showcase during the 2019 Tamworth Country Music Festival.

Laura-Therese Davis

'FORGOTTEN TOWN' - LAURA-THERESE DAVIS

Laura-Therese Davis is a singer, songwriter, trained pianist and self-taught guitarist from the Northern Rivers of NSW. Her connection to the land and love of horses have helped bring her to country music. Born in Sydney with a spirit raised in the country, Laura packed up her horses, Bonnie and Polo, and moved north to a property near Maclean NSW in 2015. This is where the inspiration for her debut country recordings have transpired.

Drovers, cattle stations, and farms light up the Davis family-tree. Whereas for Laura, creating and performing music has always been something she loved. The singer-songwriter has been performing since she was four years old. Over the years, Laura-Therese has been involved with musical theatre and shows, the extras and commercial acting scene also attending ATYP (Australian Theatre For Young People). She began performing on the live music circuit in Sydney at 17 and has played inner-city bars, country pubs to the Sydney Opera House and everything in between.

Drawing inspiration from a broad range of musical greats such as Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Glen Campbell, Wanda Jackson, KD Lang and Paul Kelly, Laura-Therese comments, “I take inspiration from great songwriters, lyricists and story tellers”. All the family on her dad’s side are big country music fans. They all grew up in the country and most of them still live on the land.

When asked about the type of music she wants to share, Laura-Therese muses, “I want to write songs about things that matter. I live on a property in the country, surrounded by cattle, cane fields and farmers, people who really “live off the land”. I see the comparisons between city and country and how tough it is in the country, yet country folk will help anyone anytime, it’s just the way it is out here. I don’t belong in the city, I belong in the country and I finally feel like I’m home”.

Laura-Therese’s debut single is an autobiographical tale of a new highway being built near her hometown. While the song’s author lives in Maclean, New South Wales this story could be about so many towns; it’s the same sad tale. With roadwork ten minutes from her home, everyday Laura would drive past and see the beautiful landscape literally changing before her eyes. The song begins with lap steel guitar and the haunting tone sets the scene for ‘Forgotten Town’.

They’re building a highway on the edge of town, rolling up sleeves, tearing it down.
Tar in the field, instead of sugarcane, rust in the river, what will remain?

Sally-Anne Whitten

Sally-Anne Whitten – Misfit.mp3

'MISFIT' - SALLY-ANNE WHITTEN

‘Misfit’ written and recorded by Sally-Anne Whitten is the second single from the 2018 album “Burgundy Street”.

On this new single, Sally-Anne and co get down and a little dirty here. Lyrically, the songstress pulls no punches and fellow Tamworthian Matt O'Leary has starring role on harmonica. We all know those air-kissing, fake members of society depicted in the song.

“Burgundy Street” is a mixed bag when it comes to musical genre. The artist has yet again embraced her unique blend of swampy blues, R&B, southern rock and West Coast country. Over the years Sally-Anne has honed her very own style of ‘funky country’.

Review rating: ***½
“Whitten’s originals elevate this record beyond homage”.
Phil Stafford – The Sunday Mail

Since releasing the album and first single ‘Watch It Burn’, the singer-songwriter has performed in Sydney and Melbourne, with more album release performances planned across the country. The proud Tamworth born and bred resident was amongst country music’s biggest names performing at the ‘We Care Concert’, the New England and North West Drought Appeal. Sally-Anne joined Lee Kernaghan, Adam Harvey, Lyn Bowtell, Ashleigh Dallas and more to help raise over $55,000 for the much-needed fundraiser.

'APPLE TREE' - JASON OWEN

Following on from the successful “Jason Owen Sings John Denver Tour”, Jason now prepares to release ‘Apple Tree’, his first original tune in almost two years. Written by Cousin Matthew Young the new track is a tender tale of promised love.

While Jason has loved performing the songs of the country music legend for the better part of the last year, the 2012 X Factor runner-up is eager to once again release original work. When asked about the upcoming release Jason says, ‘I'm pumped to be releasing my first original song in over a year and a half. I'm excited about my new feel with ‘Apple Tree’ as I believe it’s time for a slight change from what I have released in the past six years. I really hope that everyone enjoys the slightly new feel with the single ‘Apple Tree’.

The “Jason Owen Sings John Denver Tour” has criss-crossed New South Wales culminating in three shows next month – Temora, Dubbo & Newcastle. With special guests including Gretta Ziller, Dani Young, Angus Gill and Jasmine Atkins, Jason has performed the much-loved tracks from his June 2017 release, “Jason Owen Sings John Denver - The 20th Anniversary”.

Born and bred in the small town of Albert 150km west of Dubbo NSW, Jason was raised to the tune of classic country artists. After being launched onto the Australian music scene following his time on The X Factor in 2012, Jason has continued to grow into a genuine country artist. A national tour with country music darling Amber Lawrence, a 2014 CMAA Golden Guitar finalist placement for ‘Top Selling Album Of The Year’, nine hit singles including ‘Run’ (the 5th highest song on country radio throughout 2015) and a ‘Male Artist Of The Year' nomination at the 2017 Country Music Channel Awards have cemented his growing reach in the industry he loves.

Sally-Anne Whitten – Watch It Burn.mp3

'WATCH IT BURN' - SALLY-ANNE WHITTEN

On this track, Tamworth born and raised Sally-Anne Whitten talks about doing life your way, staying true to yourself, and not being afraid to say good bye to people or things that are no good for you. It’s no surprise that Sally-Anne was listening to a lot of Robben Ford and John Hiatt just before this track was born.

'Watch It Burn' is the first single from Sally-Anne's new album Burgundy Street and is available on all digital stores & streaming services now and in all good record stores via Checked Label Services from this weekend

REVIEWS ARE IN:
If you’re a fan of modern Australian Country Music, with a touch of Jazz and Blues thrown in for flavor, I highly recommend checking out "Burgundy Street"", John Turnbull - Independent Australia

"Burgundy Street" initially sounds like a great rockin’ album; on repeated listening it’s clear that it’s soaked in some heavy experiences and a tinge of heartache, if not heartbreak. That’s due to the complexity of Whitten’s voice and her ability to bring a lot to a song. So take your time with this one – perhaps even sit back, imagine yourself on Burgundy Street in New Orleans and let the world pass by as you listen", Jolene: The Country Music Blog

"Sally-Anne's winsome vocals are the thread that binds all of the different elements and styles of this album together, whether interpreting the songs of Glenn Fry & Don Henley, Little Willie John or Alan Toussaint or singing her own wonderful originals, it's her voice that pulls the listener into every nuanced corner of Burgundy Street. I am enamoured with this album, and you will be too", Pete Williams - 'Made In The Shade', 99.3FM

Alexandra Gunn

Alexandra Gunn - Follow Through.mp3

ALEXANDRA GUNN ‘FOLLOW THROUGH’

‘Follow Through’ the debut single from country pop artist Alexandra Gunn is about getting into gear. If you say you're going to do something, commit, follow through and take action. Influenced by strong young female country artists such as Kacey Musgraves, Maren Morris & Kelsea Ballerini, Alexandra says, “This is my unconventional love song. Not the butterflies and rainbows type but love all the same. It's a bit of a last ditch effort, get it together or I'll give you the boot”.

Born and raised on the Southside of Brisbane, Qld the self-described girl from the suburbs who rides horses in her imagination, has her mum and dad to thank for the musical introduction. Dad performed in bands before Alexandra existed and mum would diligently attend his gigs, even while pregnant with their first born child.

Dad has been Alexandra’s musical rock over the years with guidance in recording, writing, producing and even features in the ‘Follow Through’ film clip; on the guitar. Her husband and bass guitarist can also be seen on-screen. Meeting through music, Alexandra was quick to poach him for herself, both personally and professionally, not long after the pair met.

WATCH THE CLIP HERE

Preferring to create songs, young Alexandra would sing more than she talked. As she got older and life became more real her songs were always a way to put her emotions into words. Every song, even sassy ones like 'Follow Through' are based on real life. Alexandra firmly believes, “It's my release and I don't think I would survive without it”.

Previously performing under the moniker ‘Alexandra’, in the singer/songwriter genre, the artist always dreamt of playing with a full band and becoming the pop country artist she is today. Freely admitting she stumbled into country music, Alexandra instantly felt at home, “The culture is amazing and performers are applauded for the longevity of their careers. Country songs are about real things, real life, and it's something I immediately wanted to be a part of”.

‘FOLLOW THROUGH’ IS AVAILABLE ON ALL DIGITAL STORES & STREAMING SERVICES
