Sunday Morning Cinema is the new album from singer/songwriter and multi –instrumentalist  Dan Parsons, whose highly regarded talents have seen him in high demand for some fine artists including Marlon Williams, Kate Miller-Heidke, Ella Hooper and Tracy McNeil & The GoodLife.  

Recorded live and straight to tape in 3 days Sunday Morning Cinema is the very welcome follow up to 2015’s Valleywood (nominated for Best Folk Roots Album in The Age Music Victoria Awards 2016) and is scheduled for release August 10, 2018 through MGM.  Here Goes Nothin, the first single from the album was released late last year and held the #1 spot on AMRAP’s AIRIT regional chart for two weeks. 

As a singer/songwriter Parsons conjures up the essence of troubadour folk-rock and classic Americana influences, exploring the triumphs and anxieties of the human experience.  With his newly formed live band – Rodeo Pony, featuring Robin Waters (Ella Hooper, The Boat People) on keys, Alex O’Gorman (Big Smoke, Angie McMahon) on bass and Bree Hartley (Tracy McNeil & The GoodLife) on drums, Parson’s new album rides through canyons, weaves across silver oceans and launches into the interstellar.

For Parsons, Sunday Morning Cinema ventures into new territory both musically and in its process.  Working up the songs with his band prior to entering the studio allowed for an organic and authentic experience.  With engineer Fraser Montgomery at the helm, the result is a collection of nine songs, all fully realised and captured in widescreen technicolour. 

To celebrate the album’s release, Parson’s will perform Sunday Morning Cinema in its entirety at the Northcote Social Club on Sunday, September 2nd, with special guests indie chamber-folk sensations Charm of Finches in addition to a small run of East Coast dates, with more dates expected later in the year.

Lee-Kernaghan 2.jpgIt might have been 25 years since country music legend Lee Kernaghan launched his seminal album Outback Club, but there is no slowing down for the boy from the bush. Lee is revving up for a busy couple of months as he continues his 25th Anniversary Tour, aptly titled Boys From The Bush. For fans of his music, it is no surprise that Lee Kernaghan just keeps getting better and better. He is always working on new material, tours rigorously and puts an incredible amount of energy into each show.

Getting out on the road is what Lee loves best and expanding the Boys From The Bush tour into 2018 is a win-win for Lee and fans alike. “I’m incredibly excited to be taking the 25th Anniversary Tour into another year to make sure we get to celebrate with as many fans as possible,” he says.

When Lee announced his 25th Anniversary Tour last year, the plan was to kick off at the Tamworth Country Music Festival in January and tour the country until the end of 2017. The tour was massive, selling out date after date, and the audience feedback was overwhelming – they wanted more! It sold out an incredible 29 out of 32 shows – a fitting result for a 25th anniversary – and culminated in two huge concerts at The Palms at Crown in Melbourne in November.

At the end of the tour, the demand was clear – the tour needed to be extended, reaching out to areas that missed out in 2017. When Lee announced the Boys From The Bush tour was rolling into 2018, tickets immediately started to fly out the door, and many of the shows announced are already close to selling out.

The newly announced May and June dates are destined to be huge and Lee can’t wait to celebrate his auspicious anniversary with his legion of fans. “It’s an amazing experience being on stage singing songs like Boys From The Bush, Hat Town, Flying With The King, Australian Boy and The Outback Club,” he says. “So many of those songs are not just about me, they’re about us, our people, our country, and our way of life – that’s what inspires me the most. I am really happy about being able to continue the party to areas we could not get to last year.”

The Boys From The Bush tour features Lee’s classic hits, ballads and rural anthems that have won the country legend a nationwide legion of fans that he prefers to call ‘mates’. With 38 number one hits to his credit, the show celebrates Lee’s career, and even more than that – it celebrates the fans who have been there from the beginning – and those who have joined in along the way.

Lee Kernaghan’s Boys From The Bush 25th Anniversary Tour is an unforgettable experience and a part of Australian music history! Book your tickets early and join the celebration of the epic career of one of this country’s all-time greats.

Tickets to the Boys From the Bush – 25th Anniversary Tour 2018 dates are on sale now.

Wolfe Brothers Country Heart pr2.jpg

Tasmania’s The Wolfe Brothers have debuted at #9 on this week’s ARIA Chart with their new album – their fourth – Country Heart. This is the band’s highest ARIA chart entry position to date beating their last album, This Crazy Life, which came in at #10 on release in June 2016. This is a great effort when you consider Ed Sheeran holds three of the eight spots before them.

For the band, the charting position is all due to their fans. “We are all stoked and really proud of this ARIA Top 10 debut,” says lead singer Nick Wolfe. “We have our fans to thank for going out and buying the album and giving us our highest ARIA all genre chart position to date.”

All four of The Wolfe Brothers albums have entered the ARIA chart in the Top 20. The last two albums, Nothin’ But Trouble and This Crazy Life, and this new release Country Heart, have all debuted on the ARIA Country Chart at #2. The band penned the album on a songwriting trip to Nashville last year where they collaborated with a number of different writers, with the objective to create a different sound and deliver songs that would hopefully take the band to the next level.

After three highly successful albums, the band felt ready to take a big step with number four. “We really wanted to do something different, something that would reach a wider audience and something to show that we have grown and matured as a band and as songwriters,” says bassist Tom Wolfe. “We are very proud of this album and we feel that we achieved what we set out to do and to see it debut at #9 is very satisfying and a great start to the next chapter for the band.”

The Wolfe Brothers enlisted award-winning producer Matt Fell to produce their fourth studio album in his Sydney studio. “Matt was amazing to work with,” says lead guitarist Brodie Rainbird. “He is also a great musician and he really understood our need to do something different with this album. In the past we have always been a guitar driven band. This time we never picked up a guitar until we were two weeks into the recording. We took the time to work on the parts of every song. It is not a massive departure from the past Wolfe Brothers records, it is just different, and the response from those who have heard the album has been incredibly encouraging for us.”

The band’s management are presently putting together the Country Heart National Tour to run through 2018. As soon as the word came through about Country Heart Top Ten ARIA Chart position the boys called their local pub The Longley International Hotel, which is near their family farm, to ask if they could throw a party to celebrate by holding the first show of their national tour at their long-time local.are

“When we heard the news, there was not a second thought about making the first show of our tour a party on home turf at our local pub,” says Tom. “It is for the people who have always been there for us and cracking the top ten means there has to be a serious party to celebrate.”

Tickets will sell-out fast, as they always do when the Tassie boys play at home. The Wolfe Brothers Celebration Party will kick off the forthcoming Country Heart National Tour. “We can’t wait to take this album out on the road and play to the fans around Australia,” says Brodie. “But to kick off the tour at our local pub with 500 of our long-term supporters, celebrating the album’s release, will be a special day. Beer, sausage sangas, outdoor fires, and a stage set in a beautiful country outdoor beer garden - what better way to celebrate with friends. Bring it on, we can’t wait!”
