Alex Tobin is proud to announce the launch of his music video for “Last Call”.
"Last Call" won the International category at the Australian Songwriters Association Awards in December 2013. Alex is the first Australian to win this award which has been dominated by US entrants over the years. The video stars comedian Benjamin “Frenchy” French as an earnest but lonely guy that goes through the trials of speed dating in the hopes of reversing his fortunes.

I thought I'd offer some information relating to our experiences during the Tamworth 2014 Country Music Festival.
This is a hectic week of gigging and catching up with many old friends, and meeting many new friends.
The festival is HUGE!!!
Peel St. runs through the centre of town, (east/west), and many venues operate along this 1-2 mile stretch of road, with buskers lining the street playing their songs and all putting on quality performances.
Both young and old, live and some with backing tapes.
Some with didgeridoos, some with acoustic guitars, and in some cases a total band set-up.
We had whip cracking demonstrations, clowns, concerts at some stages where the intersections were blocked to facilitate big stages.
The shopkeepers did a roaring trade as hundreds of people wandered through the town during the 10 days.
This festival boasts over 800 acts performing in varying stages, venues and clubs around the
The Prairie Oysters have finally released their new album titled, "THREE".
This is the third album the boys have released in their 8 year stint.
The guys have penned 8 new original songs and will coincide the release with their Tamworth dates for 2014.
Expect more news regarding the Melbourne CD launch soon.
The Tamworth dates are below, and it looks like quite a busy schedule.
We are looking forward to catching up with the many friends we have made in Tamworth.
And 2014 is shaping up to be another busy year for the boys.
