Shea Fisher – ‘Tough’ 

This Portland (VIC) born/Maroochydoore (QLD) raised artist is back with a brand new single, Tough. An ode to a country girl’s Mr Right, Shea is sure that this upbeat, fun song is one most Aussie girls will be able to relate to. The track was co-written with Bridgette Tatum (Jason Aldean) and Kristy Lee Cook (American Idol finalist).

The Tough video clip is now playing on the Country Music Channel – VIEW HERE

Since her last single release ‘Move on’, in 2013, Shea has been working on new material which will be released in the form a full-length album next year through ABC Music. Tough is the 1st single to be released from the as-yet-untitled album.

Shea feels blessed to have worked with some of Nashville’s elite songwriters including Bridgette, Pat Alger (Garth Brooks) & Tim Owen (Brad Paisley). As a young girl dreaming of making country music her career, she never imagined sharing the stage with Travis Tritt, Luke Bryan and Kenny Chesney but she has done just that and more.

With a six-time Australian champion bull-rider for a dad and Australian champion barrel-racer for a mum, not many were surprised when Shea also won several Australian rodeo titles. This Queenslander not only sings about country life she lives it – Shea grew up on the rodeo circuit, winning both Australian and American titles and loves nothing more than saddling up her horse and going for a ride.

In 2007, at just 16, Shea had signed a record deal with ABC Music and released her debut album, Everyday Girl, reaping two #1 singles. Her second album, Shea was released two years later and by then the singer-songwriter had four #1 singles to add to her musical triumphs.

When Shea isn’t performing or creating new music, she works on several TV networks, is a fashion model, health & fitness expert and a jewelry and buckle designer. In 2013, Shea married Tyson Durfey, an eight-time National Finals Rodeo qualifier and has since divided her time between her home state of Queensland and her now adopted home of Texas USA.

‘FRIENDS LIKE YOU’ FROM KRISTY JAMES

‘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.

IAN BURNS – GOD GAVE ME WINGS

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 busing on the streets of Tamworth at the Country Music Festival last year, Ian returned in 2016 with a jam-packed schedule. This included 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.

JOHN KRSULJA – IN A HEARTBEAT

‘In A Heartbeat’ – the debut single from John Krsulja is a duet with Katie Brianna and co-written with Kerrie Garside and Golden Guitar winners Luke O’Shea and Lachlan Bryan. The track is based on the true love story of Joy Reid, who as a young Aboriginal woman met and fell in love at 16 with her first love Daryl Wilson. The pair were unable to be together because it was, “Back in the day when nice white boys never had black girlfriends”, says Aunty Joy.

After 40 years Daryl contacted Aunty Joy, they agreed to meet at Maitland Railway Station and as Daryl held Joy, their love came back to them… ‘In A Heartbeat’. Still together now, you can learn more about their love story from ABC Radio’s ‘Meet The Mob’ CLICK HERE

‘In A Heartbeat’ is the first single from John’s debut album “Travellin’” which was produced by friend and mentor Karl Broadie. The album was recorded at the Cliff Tops of Sydney and at The DAG Sheep Station, Nundle – owned by John Krsulja or John K, as he’s better known to his friends. After years of travelling around the world and Australia, John settled in Tamworth, Australia’s Country Music Capital with his wife Belinda and their two little girls Brooke and Jade. It was at The DAG, inspired by all the artists he has met over the years, that John K resurrected his 20 year love for song writing and performing. Recently released, “Travellin’” is the result of this love and time.

“In a world where authenticity is in short supply and the music ‘biz’ awash with fakery on all sides, John Krsulja’s debut album “Travellin’” arrives as a welcome blast of honesty and integrity. The songs are heartfelt and real, full of fine words on family and life, rendered by John in a voice that is warm and convincing. The songs are wrapped in a suitably tasteful Karl Broadie production palette allowing the songs and the spirit to cut through the babble and white noise of modern life. They deserve to be heard.”

Michael Roberts (MBE) – Producer, Musician aka ‘Mickey Blue Eyes’

ANGELA EASSON – ‘ONCE UPON A TIME’

Adelaide-based singer-songwriter Angela Easson releases ‘Once Upon A Time’ – the first single from her upcoming debut album “Wanted”, due for release on November 13th. This self-penned track was inspired when reflecting back on her first real love and to where she is today.

The new music was recorded with producer Rob Mackay (Luke O’Shea, Tanya Self, Kaylee Bell) of Pacific International Music in both Queensland’s Hervey Bay and country music capital Nashville, USA. All 12 remaining tracks on “Wanted” were also written by Angela, a 2010 CMAA Country Music Academy graduate.

Angela began singing at the age of 10 when she fell in love with country music after attending her first country music event in Mount Gambier, SA. Moving to Adelaide in 1997, she has worked with many South Australian musicians, branching into different genres including pop, jazz and blues. Angela is an active member in the community, including the lead vocalist for the Onkaparinga Big Band.

Angela’s many accolades include being crowned the international winner of the 2010 Trans-Tasman Entertainer Of The Year award by the Norfolk Island Country Music Association and the 2009 South Australian Senior Champion Of Champions. 2011 saw Angela named a Toyota Star Maker finalist and the release of her self-titled debut EP.

Angela’s natural song-writing abilities were celebrated in 2010 after winning the South Australian APRA Modern Country Song Of The Year and the South Australian APRA Overall Country Song of The Year with her song ‘Forget To Forget You’.

Influenced by her country music female idols Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, and Kacey Musgraves, Angela now looks forward to sharing her new release. “I’m excited to release this new music and get it out there for people to listen too. It’s been a long time in the making and I can’t wait for its release”, says Angela.

TANYA SELF – DRESSED TO KILL

 

‘Dressed To Kill’ the latest single from Tanya Self, the born and bred Queenslander, is a loud and proud, classic girl anthem. Co-written with Sarah Godden (Delta Goodrem, Anthony Callea, Vanessa Amorosi), ‘Dressed To Kill’ ignites a crowd with a strong, earthy and positive message – the relationship is done and dusted; take control of your destiny and move on.

“Happiness and love doesn’t fall at your feet.  You have to be truly open to the possibility of finding what you want.    Sometimes that means taking a deep breath, putting yourself out there, and going for it.  It’s a hard life lesson – but worth the risk,” smiles Tanya, who found herself in the same position after becoming divorced.  Happily remarried, she has just celebrated her eleven year wedding anniversary.

‘Dressed To Kill’ was ear-marked as “single potential” from its inception in name alone.  Early demos and crowd response soon confirmed its destiny and it grew into one of Tanya’s favourite songs to perform live.  When the time came to nut out what to include on her 2014 “Random Truths” album, Tanya says, “It earned big ticks for being relatable and easily striking a chord with listeners. But you never know until you head into the studio.  It was magical and so exciting to hear it morphing from a thumpy acoustic rendition into something with a great vibe over a cheeky and forthright message.  It made sense.”

‘Dressed to Kill’ is Track 1 on “Random Truths” album, released in May 2014.

“Random Truths” has had three consecutive Top Ten single successes on the Country Tracks Top 40 chart including ‘The Jacaranda’ – the 1st single’s momentous eight weeks in the #1 spot – all produced in Nashville by award-winning Australian, Mike Flanders and collaborated with Rob Mackay and Jason Millhouse for Pacific International Music, here in Australia.  Tanya has performed at some of Australia’s premiere music festivals including Gympie Music Muster, Urban Country, Blue Water Country Music Festival, Canberra Blues & Roots Festival, Whittlesea, and a long-awaited welcome return to the Tamworth Country Music Festival.  Poignant performances of ‘Listening In’, (the track that deals with the often-silenced topic of domestic violence) include the United Nations International Women’s Day Conference, Brisbane Queen Street Mall for White Ribbon Day and the Queensland Parliament House for White Ribbon pledge-taking ceremony.

INNOCENT EVE – EVERY WOMAN

‘Every Woman’ – new single from sisters Rachel and Rebecca aka INNOCENTEVE celebrates the title subject. Written by the Rockhampton sister-act and taking inspiration from three diverse women, each song verse portrays a different individual. The song is an observation about how each woman appears to the outside world, of having it all together or having the perfect life – but they all have their own battles and passions, needs and desires or dreams – and they want it all. The song questions that need, that want, is it wrong? Or is it right to reach for the stars?

“She wants to be every woman and to sail every sea, to be a mother, lover, daughter and a friend,

She wants to ride a magic carpet, taste every wine and just fly free,”

‘Every Woman’ – Rachel & Rebecca Olsson, 2014

For the accompanying video clip, INNOCENTEVE enlisted the help of female family and friends of various ages, races, shapes, sizes and religions. Ranging from toddlers to the girls’ 83-years-old Nan, each woman has a starring role in the brand new clip, check it out here:

‘Every Woman’ is the 3rd single to be lifted from the sister-duo’s debut album “Temporary Balms”. The album’s title (also an album track) is about the vices or ‘temporary’ fixes we apply to certain situations even though we know they’re not best for us nor permanent solutions, like drinking away the pain. The album features 13 lucky tracks, with 10 coming from the duo’s collective pen and the three remaining tracks being re-workings of some much-loved songs. Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’, Tracy Chapman’s ‘Talkin’ ‘Bout A Revolution’ and Creedence Clearwater Revival’s classic ‘Proud Mary’ all receiving the INNOCENTEVE effect after being in the live set-list for years.

In support of this new single and video clip release, INNOCENTEVE is heading out on a regional QLD tour. The girls will perform in Longreach, Windorah, Blackwater, Rockhampton, Mackay and at the Big Red Bash – the two day music festival in the Simpson Desert, Birdsville as part of the Heels On Wheels show.

Both ‘Every Woman’  & Temporary Balms”

are available from iTunes, GooglePlay & official site

DEEP CREEK ROAD – WHAT IF I WAS WILLING

 

Latest single, ‘What If I Was Willing’ from Melbourne-based act Deep Creek Road, has already had a starring role on US hit TV show Nashville. Fans of the show will remember during Season Two when main character, up and coming artist Will Lexington, performed it on a number of episodes. Steve Simmons & J’aime Holland, the driving forces behind Deep Creek Road came across the track while in the famed music city a few years back. They had answered an ‘extras casting call’ and subsequently featured in the episode when the song made its debut.

The track is actually written by Nashville hit-makers Billy Montana (Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw, Kenny Rogers), Randy Montana (Garth Brooks, Jo Dee Messina, Sara Evans) and on-the-rise singer-songwriter Brian Davis. This is the second track lifted from their second EP “I Wanna See Ur Crazy”.  The first single and title track was written by Steve and J’aime along with well-known country writer Clive Young (Adam Brand, Brooke McClymont, Amber Lawrence) and celebrated two months on the Country Tracks Top 40.

Deep Creek Road has toured extensively across the country including the Tamworth Country Music Festival, Deni Ute Muster, Melbourne’s Live On The Lawn festival alongside Kasey Chambers, Lee Kernaghan and will perform at their first Gympie Music Muster this August. The band is currently in Nashville ready to enjoy the CMA Music Festival while writing/recording new music for their new album due for release in 2016.

NICK PAYNE – OLD SYDNEY TOWN 

Nick Payne, singer/songwriter/guitarist of Sydney folk/bluegrass act Dear Orphans, releases his first solo single, the self-penned ‘Old Sydney Town’.

An ode to the hardships of life in the colony of 1789 Sydney, this is an old time modal song combined with bluegrass banjo and bluesy dobro.

Co-produced with Lyn Taylor (the other half of Dear Orphans) the track was recorded in the lounge room of the band’s dobro player Jolyon Gray back in June 2014. Recorded live with only backing vocals and tambourine added later, the intention was to capture the spontaneity and energy that can only come from a live performance.

‘Old Sydney Town’ is the first single from an as-yet-untitled album currently in production and is available as a FREE DOWNLOAD HERE and you can check out the video clip HERE

The upcoming album will feature 12 songs and be divided into two ‘sides’. Side A will be songs set in the present, produced with contemporary instrumentation and Side B songs will be set in the past but produced with traditional acoustic instrumentation. Co-writes with fellow country music artists Katie Brianna and Megan Cooper are already slated as part of the track listing for an album that will include themes of hardship, revenge, death, peace, goodbyes and salvation.

Nick grew up in Sydney but has also lived in Wollongong (south of Sydney), Dalby in rural QLD, the Gold Coast and eventually made the move back home in 2005. The singer-songwriter’s first instrument of choice was the piano at aged 8, luckily at age 12 Nick was given a guitar by his mum and subsequently quit the piano! Music was a staple right through high school and in Year 11 Nick formed a Beatles cover band. In his final year of school, Nick was a member of a three-piece indie rock band called The Caveman which continued for another year or so.

With regard to the country music path, we have Ryan Adams and a borrowed copy of his “Heartbreaker” album to thank. After listening to this album, Nick dug through his music collection and realised “for a guy who doesn’t like country music I sure owned a lot of it!” Around the same time, Nick was finally able to purchase the acoustic guitar he’d always wanted – a Martin HD28V, for those wondering. And in an attempt to convince himself it was the right decision played it as much as possible and in turn the Dear Orphans was created.  ‎
