'Everybody thinks I'm Lonely' The Harmonators


‘Everybody Thinks I’m Lonely’, the brand new radio single from The Harmonators is another gem from Jay O’Shea (female half of husband and wife duo O’Shea) and Troy Johnson (Sara Evans, Keith Urban) – the title track from their self proclaimed, aptly titled 2nd album, “Big Mouth” was also penned by this song writing team. A tongue-in-cheek tale, it’s a fun take on what it is to be a single girl.

“I don’t know why everybody thinks I’m lonely, don’t they know I love staying home, crying on the phone, waking up shaking from sleeping all alone every night… though I don’t mind”

J. O’Shea & T. Johnson, Everybody Thinks I’m Lonely, 2012

The girls live by the philosophy of taking their music, not themselves, very seriously and believe this beautifully crafted song was the best vehicle for them to demonstrate this belief.

Being recently nominated for the first time in the CMAA Country Music Awards Of Australia – Group Or Duo Of The Year category, the Australian Institute Of Music graduates continue to pinch themselves. Rae summed up the duo’s feelings, “Being nominated was a great honour, it is something you always wish and hope for with any new release, but to achieve this goal was really special, especially considering we were nominated in a category with people whose music and talent we admire”.

While they didn’t walk away with the Golden Guitar, this year’s Tamworth Country Music Festival was one of their most successful and rewarding to date. Their main, ticketed show was an opportunity for a bunch of friends, Tracy Killeen and Sally-Anne Whitten, who each had their unique brand of country music to come together and create a listening feast full of stories, strong female vocals, harmonies and bucket loads of ‘Lipstick, Lyrics And Laughter’ – the name of their Tamworth show.

The musical twosome now sets their sights on touring including upcoming dates at the 2013 Coastal Country Music Easter main concert (Nambucca Heads) in March, Coonabarrabran Fire Relief Concert in April and the Inaugural Broadbeach Country Music Festival in June. While Rae will be keeping her eye on the winners’ announcement of the APRA Professional Development Awards – from 1500 entries, she is now amongst the artists that have made it to the second round of judging.
