Currently playing to full houses in the US, following a sold out European and UK tour, Angus & Julia Stone announce the extension of their 2018 Australian metro dates to a huge nationwide run through regional centres in April and May.  Joining them on the road as special guest is powerhouse Melbourne singer-songwriter Angie McMahon, with her bold vocals and beautiful guitar tones.

Unveiled in September, the Stones’ latest album Snow is the latest in a body of work dating all the way back to 2006, when Angus & Julia first emerged from Sydney’s Northern Beaches with their signature harmonies and ethereal song craft. Recorded in Angus’ Byron Bay cottage, Snow is the first album written entirely in collaboration - a process initiated by producer Rick Rubin while working on the pair’s 2014 self-titled record.

On release, Snow rocketed straight to number 2 on the ARIA Albums Chart, becoming the duo’s fourth consecutive top 5 album in the process - a remarkable achievement in this constantly shifting musical landscape. The record was also hand-picked as triple j’s feature album and has charted worldwide, hitting the top 20 in the US, UK, France, Switzerland and New Zealand.

Latest single Chateau has struck a special chord with audiences around the world, proving a real highlight of their live shows and racking up over 2.5 million video views. View HERE.  The narrative is played out by leading Australian actors Courtney Eaton, who starred in Mad Max Fury Road, and Dacre Montgomery, who stars as ‘Billy’ in the Netflix hit series ‘Stranger Things 2’. 

It continues to grow each week and has cracked the Top 50 ARIA streaming chart (one of only three Australian acts in the chart) and it has now chalked up over 12 million streams worldwide on Spotify alone.

In a highlight for fans and triple J listeners, Angus & Julia unveil the video for new track Cellar Door, as premiered on Nylon. View HERE.

Angus & Julia Stone are set to take Snow across the country on an extensive regional tour in 2018. They will perform in every state and territory, visiting Rockhampton, Darwin, Bendigo, Launceston, Fremantle and everywhere in between. This expansive new set of dates is in addition to already announced city shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane and follows a sold out national tour on album release.

Country music icon and all-round Aussie legend Kasey Chambers has today announced the release of her 12th studio album, Campfire, to be released on 27 April. 

Chambers has said that the inspiration for the album came from her childhood, spent in regional communities.

"I grew up in the remote outback of Australia living a unique lifestyle isolated from civilisation. The campfire was the heart of our existence: for survival, creativity, inspiration. We hunted all our own food and then cooked it on the campfire," she explained. 

"My brother and I did all our schooling via correspondence around the campfire. We used the campfire for warmth and light. We gathered around the campfire at night to play songs together as a family. Our connection to music and the land has developed through and around the campfire since I was born, so it has always stayed with me as a special part of my life."

Chambers has just dropped her first single from the album, The Campfire Song, as well as a video. Check it out below.

In celebration of the new album, Chambers will be heading off on a massive national tour, starting off in Casino, in May and wrapping up in Wonthaggi in August, while hitting nearly 40 other shows in between.

Herman's Hermits, one of the biggest 60's British Invasion bands, are bringing their '6 O'Clock Hop' tour to Australia in August/September 2018 where every show starts at 6pm sharp. 

Their Australian No. 1 hits, 'Mrs. Brown you've got a lovely daughter' and 'No milk today' made the group one of the most popular groups of the day here in Australia. 

Herman's Hermits first toured Australia in 1966 on the 'Caravan of Stars 66' tour with Tom Jones in support. Since 1971 and the departure of Peter Noone to pursue a solo career in the music business, the group has never stopped.

Australia’s largest scale Pink Floyd concept show entitled Echoes of Pink Floyd will finally tour its two-hour full scale concert production nationally in 2018 taking in Capital Cities and many major Regional towns.

Celebrating 35 years since Pink Floyd last toured “The Wall”, Echoes of Pink Floyd will perform tracks from the band’s iconic 1979 album and will engage local schools to provide the “Brick in the Wall” choir.  The tour also celebrates 50 years since Pink Floyd released their first album and will play a selection of Pink Floyd’s greatest hits that spans the band’s momentous career.

Synchronised to the music and designed to recreate the sights and emotions of a genuine Pink Floyd concert, Paul says, “It’s not just the music, it’s the circle, the show and the whole experience.” “We are the only act that is touring trussing that supports this incredible 4 metre circle that can project 6000 lumens video. It really is a show not to be missed.”

Several years in development and having accumulated over 5000 hours of rehearsal time to perfect these songs, Echoes of Pink Floyd comprises a six-piece band – featuring Daniel Hunter on lead guitar; Jason Miller on drums; Mark Dole on bass; Paul Bindig on keyboards and synthesisers; Mark MacNab on rhythm and acoustic guitar and Matt Goodluck on lead vocals – whose aim is to authentically replicate the brilliant sights and sounds of one of the world’s greatest progressive rock bands of all time, Pink Floyd. The Adelaide tribute has been garnering attention from attention since they began in 2009, with audiences describing the show as “one of the best” and “a musical and visual journey that never disappoints”, whilst also likening them to “the original band”. 

Echoes of Pink Floyd’s Daniel Hunter says, “Each member of the band loves and respects what the original Pink Floyd gave to the world with their music and we want to bring this to life for the audience who may not have had a chance to experience a Pink Floyd concert”.  “We aim to ensure every aspect of the original Pink Floyd music is captured authentically, he adds”.

Bass guitarist Mark Dole says, “At core, we are looking at the legacy of the music.  Our vision and desire is to keep this music alive so it will be remembered for generations to come. We want to stand up as the next representatives of these guys in the 21st century, by being the truly authentic Pink Floyd concept show for Australia”.

PMJ-FBAd-20p.jpg

Doors open: 7pm
Show starts: 8pm

Each time around, PMJ looks forward to bringing their unique spin on modern pop hits and retro pop stylings to new cities for the first time, as well as revisiting favourite haunts that welcome them back with eagerly open arms. And as any PMJ fan can tell you, the experience is never the same twice, with new songs, new sounds, and new members added to the ever-growing family each time around.

Since Scott Bradlee created the project in 2009, PMJ has amassed more than 900 million YouTube views and 3.2 million subscribers, chalked up more than 1 million likes on Facebook, performed on “Good Morning America,” topped iTunes and Billboard charts, caught the attention of NPR Music and NBC News, and played hundreds of shows to sold-out houses around the world. 

That seemingly exhausting pace hasn’t stopped Bradlee from arranging and recording new arrangements every week for PMJ’s legion of fans. 

Imagine marrying the 21st Century party vibe of Miley Cyrus or the minimalist angst of Radiohead with the crackly warmth of a vintage 78 or the plunger-muted barrelhouse howl of a forgotten Kansas City jazzman. Bradlee’s choice of material ranges from the ‘80s hard rock of Guns N’ Roses to hits as recent as 2015’s Justin Bieber plea “Sorry.” They’re rendered by a rotating cast of musicians and singers in fashions that date back to a time when Axl, Slash and Bieber’s parents had yet to be born – a time of street corner harmonies and torch singers, blues belters and golden-voiced crooners.

Last year, PMJ collected 18 favourites to compile The Essentials for Concord Records. The album featured the songs that Bradlee has called “most essential to the PMJ universe,” including hits by Beyoncé, the White Stripes, Lorde, Outkast and Maroon 5 – along with the song that put the band on the map, a vaudevillian distressing of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop” fronted by Robyn Adele Anderson that garnered more than a million views within a week of being posted. The pin-up styled singer returned for the album’s opener, their ‘50s doo-wop version of Miley Cyrus’ celebration of an inhibition-shedding spree, “We Can’t Stop,” which garnered more than 19.5 million views and was named one of the “9 Best Viral Cover Videos of 2015” by People magazine. 

PMJ has long since outgrown the cramped confines of Bradlee’s small apartment in Queens, NY, where the original videos were shot at a time when he was one of countless struggling musicians in the city, to play some of the most heralded stages in the world. The spirit, though, has remained the same – a collective of musicians dedicated to the timelessness of music, performing songs vibrantly and without a trace of irony. And the media has taken notice: Entertainment Weekly wrote, “Scott Bradlee’s group is known for retro-fying modern hit songs into viral success,” while Yahoo! Music added, “if you’ve been on YouTube in the last couple of years, then you’re familiar with the everything-new-is-old-again brilliance of the viral phenomenon known as Postmodern Jukebox.” 

“I take pride in putting together the right powers and personalities to create a unique and amazing experience for our fans,” Bradlee says. “We want them to escape reality and join us for the most sensational 1920s party this side of The Great Gatsby. We want them to experience what it was like to be at the New Years' Eve show that Sinatra would have hosted in the 1940s. We want them to feel the excitement of hearing the greats of Motown live and up close. Our goal is to give our audiences their favorite show again and again and still have it feel like the very first time."

Australian icon JOHN WILLIAMSON is back on the road with ‘The Butcherbird Tour’ which he will take across Australia over the next 12 months from coast to coast and sharing with his audiences his biggest hits and his latest musical contributions.

His new tour comes off the back of his forthcoming new album by the same name set for release in August 2018. The new album and tour continues to see John celebrate and pen the stories into song that he continues to be passionate about, the country, the people and the fight for what is right.

“I’m still having fun touring, I guess I will keep going till 2020 (my 50th year in the industry). My new album, ‘Butcherbird’ has come up amazingly considering I didn’t promise or plan another album of all new songs at all. Everyone is very excited and so am I! Its’s all about entertainment, just like my shows and I can’t wait to get on the road with this new show”, said John Williamson.

Have created some of Australia’s most recognised unofficial anthems, he is firmly cemented in the nation’s musical culture. John’s impressive career spans more than forty five years and his tributes to legends and unsung heroes and tender ballads have captured the spirit of the nation in song unlike any other. His honest and passionate songs are synonymous with the country that inspires him and connect him with his countrymen regardless of age, sex or creed.

Add to this his ability to deliver unforgettable live concert experiences that combine the perfect blend of humour, romance and campfire stories woven together by his music. You can understand why he is one of the most in-demand live performers in Australia.  

Inducted into the ARIA HALL OF FAME in 2010 and the recipient of more awards than he cares to mention, there is no question that JOHN WILLIAMSON is the real deal, stands by what he represents and is unashamedly proud of the country he loves. For this artist, whilst the awards are a nice recognition, there is no doubt it is the reaction from his audience that is the most important.

Along his journey he has been inducted into the prestigious ARIA Hall of Fame, secured three ARIA Awards, 25 Golden Guitars, MO Awards, APRA Awards, Platinum and Gold albums and over 4 million album sales to name just some of the recognition he has earnt.

It all started when he penned that classic OLD MAN EMU back in 1970. From this ‘silly’ song (as he often refers to it) that went to #1 for five weeks, he has continued to create hits including TRUE BLUE, COOTAMUNDRA WATTLE, RIP RIP WOODCHIP, RAINING ON THE ROCK, THE BIG RED, WINTER GREEN, SALISBURY STREET, GALLERIES OF PINK GALAHS and HAWKESBURY RIVER LOVIN’ to name but a few of the 400+ songs written by the multi-award winning songwriter.

He continues to be at the forefront of significant events in Australia, presenting the voice of Australia when it is needed most. From the 2011 Rugby League Grand Final through to the 2000 Sydney Olympics, Steve Irwin's memorial, the Bledisloe Cup, Sir Donald Bradman's memorial, the Rugby World Cup, the first Bali Bombings memorial service and the list goes on. He is ingrained in Australia's history as much as its future.

You can call him what you want, Mallee Boy, True Blue or just plain Fair Dinkum; but there is no denying that after more than forty years in the music industry, John Williamson is truly an Australian icon.

John will release his new album ‘BUTCHERBIRD’ in August 2018 and is touring Australia performing his biggest hits to sold out shows.

When you put together three brilliant Tenor voices with natural Irish charm, singing spine-tingling Classical, Folk, Irish, Gaelic and Pop favourites in stacked three-part harmonies, then mix them up with quick witted banter, you have THE CELTIC TENORS.

The charismatic, globe-trotting trio are the most successful classical crossover artists ever to have come out of Ireland.

They just sing songs they love, and they most certainly don’t take themselves too seriously.  It’s all about the music, the harmonies and the fun.

Three unique solo voices, but when called upon – one tenor sound!

While each of The Celtic Tenors have been influenced by the musical traditions from their own individual parts of Ireland, Daryl, James and Matthew show great flexibility in melding their voices to suit the appropriate genres.

The Celtic Tenors will also perform The Irish Songbook on their Australian tour with such classics as Finnegan’s Wake, In The Gloaming, Song For Ireland, Danny Boy, The Dutchman, Caledonia, You Raise Me Up and many more favourites.

With a polished international reputation and over a million album sales world-wide, The Celtic Tenors offer something truly unique. The skill, range and ability of world-class tenors combined with the personality and fun of genuine Irish performers.

“Three separately and distinctive classically-trained tenors, who when they come together they are a superbly flawless unit. They combine the high standards of operatic singing with a delightfully informal sense of fun.” (The Irish Examiner)

“The finest version of ‘Danny Boy’ I have ever heard.” (President Bill Clinton).

JOHN WAITE ANNOUNCES 

WOODEN HEART AUSTRALIAN TOUR 2018 

40th Anniversary tour celebrating the music of

THE BABYS – BAD ENGLISH – THE SOLO HITS

English singer-songwriter JOHN WAITE has announced his first ever Australian tour!

John will be performing his catalogue of hits from his 40 year career as a solo artist and also with bands, The Babys and Bad English presented in a unique electric-acoustic format with his band.

As a solo artist and as the lead singer of the Babys and Bad English, John Waite was a fixture of album-oriented rock radio stations during the '70s and '80s. John Waite had a talent for power ballads and driving arena rock, occasionally touching on new wave-styled power pop as well.  

Several of his songs -- including "Missing You," the Babys' "Isn't It Time," and Bad English's "When I See You Smile" -- became radio staples and still heard on radio today.  

John Waite formed the Babys in London, England in 1976. Initially conceived as a teen pop band, the Babys earned a record contract based on the strength of a video demo they constructed with producer Mike Mansfield. Chrysalis pushed the band heavily, resulting in "Isn't It Time" becoming a hit in the U.S. and U.K. in 1977.  

After the group disbanded in 1978 Waite began his solo career the following year, releasing 

Ignition on Chrysalis. While the album generated the minor hit "Change," his second album, 1984's No Brakes, became a genuine Top Ten hit on the strength of the number one single "Missing You."  

John Waite formed the supergroup Bad English with former Babys Jonathan Cain and Ricky Phillips (bass), ex-Journey guitarist Neal Schon, and drummer Deen Castronovo. The group's debut album, released in 1989 on Epic Records, became a platinum success after the power ballad "When I See You Smile" became a number one hit. "Price of Love" was also a Top Ten hit. 

Waite resumed his solo career in 1995, releasing Temple Bar on Imago. John Waite continues to tour his catalogue of music from his stellar 40 year career as one of the most recognisable voices of rock music.

Jimmy Barnes, Working Class Man: An Evening of Stories & Songs

Price: $119.90
All Ages Event

Artist large (hi res).jpg

Doors open: 7pm
Show starts: 8pm (2 sets)

Tickets for all shows will go onsale at exactly the same time that the second volume of his memoirs hits bookstores – 9.00am on Monday, 23 October - although members of Jimmy’s mailing list will have access to pre-sale tickets from 2.00pm on Thursday, 19 October. Fans are strongly advised to ONLY buy tickets via the genuine links at www.jimmybarnes.com otherwise they risk getting ripped off by online scalpers.

Working Class Man: An Evening of Stories & Songs will be the sequel to the acclaimed and hugely successful live show Jimmy performed alongside his first bestselling memoir - “Working Class Boy”. Like that previous production, this new tour will see Jimmy telling his life story and singing stripped back versions of songs that have shaped his journey. However, unlike its predecessor, this live show - and book - will cover the Oz rock icon's entire adult life, revealing the successes and excesses of Australia's greatest rock ’n roll story.

In “Working Class Boy”, Jimmy revealed the previously untold details of a profoundly troubled childhood. That memoir - which he wrote entirely on his own - won the ABIA Award as the Best Biography of 2016. It was also the country’s #1 selling non-fiction title last year with sales now topping 150,000 copies. The harrowing companion piece Working Class Boy: An Evening of Stories & Songs was performed over 40 Times in Australia and New Zealand and its staging at the Sydney Opera House won him both a Sydney Theatre Award and a Helpmann Award nomination.

The new Working Class Man live show and book - again both written by Jimmy - begin in 1974 as he leaves Adelaide in the back of an old bread truck with a then unknown rock group called Cold Chisel. They trace the legendary band’s long climb to the top and their subsequent implosion. The story then picks up as Jimmy carves out a new solo career for himself. He becomes the country’s biggest rock star before drugs and alcohol bring him to his knees and he eventually rebuilds his life thanks to the love of his wife and his family. It’s a spellbinding and searingly honest reflection on success, fame and addiction.

Working Class Man: An Evening of Stories & Songs is presented by Triple M and MAX. The tour will also help promote the good work of Lifeline (www.lifeline.org.au) as Jimmy will be drawing further attention to the issues of addiction and mental health in both his new book and live show. As he says in the preface to "Working Class Man”:

“In book one I faced the damage that a broken home and a broken heart can bring. In book two I face the impact that a childhood like mine can have on a man. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not blaming anyone for any of this. We all do the best with what we have. But in book two the blame rests squarely on my shoulders, and until I work a lot of things out I carry a lot of baggage around with me ...

 I have done a lot of great things. I have a beautiful family and wonderful friends. But there were many times, dark times, that I almost let it all slip through my fingers. In the end I asked for help. I used to think that if someone asked for help they were weak. But the toughest thing I ever did was reach out and ask for help. And that was when I started to heal."

 

What the critics said about Working Class Boy: An Evening of Stories & Songs:

“A powerful, deeply emotional and transformative production”

– The Daily Telegraph

“A sophisticated and very moving piece of storytelling”

– The Daily Review

“… anyone seeking an emotional, dark, funny, exciting theatrical event — and a powerful singer still in great voice — will be thrilled”

– Sunday Mail SA

“You know you’ve been to a pretty good gig when the songs of your youth are redefined. That is just what this old Cold Chisel fan is feeling right now after spending a wonderful 150 minutes listening to Australian rock great Jimmy Barnes tell his life story with yarns and song”

– The West Australian

 

To coincide with the soon-to-be bestselling book of the same name, Bloodlines/Mushroom will release a limited edition, commemorative version of one of the greatest Australian rock albums of all time, For The Working Class Man on 20 October 2017. This deluxe, double-disc package includes:

 

Disc 1 - CD

The original 1985 recordings totally re-mastered by Don Bartley, who undertook an exhaustive analogue process including the use of 1/2” tape to keep dynamics and clarity intact, maintain the punch of the original mixes and create some natural harmonics while still allowing for competitive levels.

 

Disc 2 - DVD

This 1984 performance from the legendary Playroom in Queensland captures the raw energy and musical potency of that period. It has never been commercially released.

The CD booklet has also been expanded to include previously unseen photos from the original shoot by Patrick Jones, exclusive liner notes and a track-by-track commentary from Jimmy recapturing the stories behind these classic songs. And all in a slipcase tying the album artwork directly to the cover of the book.

Jimmy’s longtime friend and label owner, Michael Gudinski, said, “I’m so proud of everything Jimmy has achieved, both solo and with Cold Chisel. He’s had more number one albums than any other Australian artist. He’s actually sold more albums solo than with Chisel, which is a remarkable stat. He’s a two-time ARIA Hall of Famer. Hell, he’s even a best-selling author. But Jimmy has never forgotten his working-class roots. The things he still values most are honesty, loyalty, friendship and family”

Doors open: 7pm
Show starts: 8pm

TMG were a cornerstone of the 70s rock scene. Label mates with AC/DC on Alberts, TMG helped shape the guitar-driven sound of Aussie rock. Their 1975 smash hit Jump In My Car catapulted them to superstardom and they followed with a swag of crowd pleasers such as Darktown Strutters Ball, Crazy, My Little Girl, Heart of Stone, and (You’ve Got) The Devil In You to name a few. The respect the industry had for TMG was evident by the massive support shown by fellow musicians who put on a series of concerts to raise money to him after he was diagnosed with cancer in 2001. TMG recently banded together in Sydney for Ted’s Birthday Bash, celebrating what would have been his 70th birthday.

When the original line-up – Les Hall, Gary Dixon and Herm Kovac – came back together, it was a natural progression to call on Steve and Mark to help them bring TMG’s music back to the live stage. “We have known Steve since he was 10 and Mark has been a mate since the early days,” says Herm. “Our first rehearsal was two hours laughter, two hours playing, so we knew it was going to be fun. Having Steve in the band is sometimes like having Ted in the band. At times he sounds just like his brother when he sings, and when he chats to the audience. The only thing missing is the bass guitar, which Steve can’t play.”

Deciding to get the band back together was a chance to revisit all the great material produced by TMG. “Our agent kept hassling me to get the band back together and when I asked Mark to play bass, his response was ‘great, we can remind people of how great Ted and his songs were’,” says Herm. “If someone told me two years ago I would be playing drums again, and playing to packed crowds, I honestly would have laughed. Its been great and fun!”

Performing again after 25 years is surreal experience. It is great for the band to get back and play the songs that created memories for generations, and continues to have relevance today. “Ted was my best mate,” says Herm. “I do miss him turning around and grinning if someone made a blue or if there was someone interesting in the audience.”

Show starts: 8pm (support)

Jon Stevens is hitting the road for a Best Of tour, traversing all the hits of his career, from his solo work, right through to Noiseworks, INXS, The Dead Daisies and even Jesus Christ Superstar. With a back catalogue jam-packed with smash hits, and no shortage of great songs to choose from, the revered singer-songwriter is looking forward to reliving the different times of his musical journey, and sharing those experiences with audiences. Hot off the heels of his latest release, Starlight, which received international acclaim after its release last year, Jon has picked 2018 as the time to embark on the tour that fans have been asking him to do for years.

“After doing back-to-back albums – WOMAN in 2015 – and then Starlight in 2017, and touring those albums, I played a few of the older songs on those tours, but it was pretty much all new material,” says Jon. “Fans are always asking me to play certain songs that I haven’t done in years, so here we are in 2018 and it just feels like the right time to explore my back catalogue. It’s interesting for me as I always try to keep moving forward, always adding something new, but I have to say that dusting off some of the old tunes has been nothing short of a revelation. While I can’t play every song, as there are way too many, I have chosen my favourites and I think fans will love it.”

With songs like Welcome To The World, Lock N Load, RIP Millie, Don’t Change and Superstar, to name a few included in the setlist, the show is guaranteed to delight. While Jon has been working on the setlist over the festive break, ready to hit the road, he acknowledges that once the tour starts, it will no doubt be a work in progress. “It’s been really difficult as there are so many songs, but I think there we have a good balance,” he says. “But, by the same token, once we start touring I’m sure the fans will have their say in wanting to add to the setlist.”

Jon Stevens hasn’t really stopped working – touring, writing or recording – since he first started out in the industry as a young musician. More recently, the 2017 release of Starlight saw him co-writing and producing with Eurythmics legend Dave Stewart, who enlisted the great Ringo Starr on drums alongside Australia’s own Orianthi and Richie Sambora on guitars. All that hard work has paid off, as Jon Stevens is now considered one of the country’s premier artists.

For Jon though, it is all about getting out on the road and connecting with fans – the most important part of his job. “My main focus now is getting out and performing all around Australia,” he says. “Time seems to be going by at such a rapid rate and I have missed being on the road in Oz, as I have spent so much time overseas the last couple of years. We are going to play in as many places as possible over the next four months. I also spent January in the studio writing and recording and am well on the way to completing a new album. I will continue to create and experiment and do my very best every time I climb on the stage and share with the fans a moment in time that you only get when you see a performer live.”

Choirboys

Price: $45.80
All Ages Event

Doors open: 7pm
Show starts: 8pm (support)

It was an era of live music, and they were the band that put the rock into pub gigs all over Australia.

The sound of a generation.

“The pubs inspired and helped create all the great Aussie bands like INXS, The Angels, AC/DC, Cold Chisel, Men At Work and on and on. We called it Pub Rock way after the fact.”

Mark Gable and his mates started in the 70s on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. “We had no idea what we were doing or where it would end up taking us – they didn’t call it Pub Rock in those days, but we were there in the beginning and we’re still here now!”

Choirboys are renowned for a great live show, it’s not just the music it’s the atmosphere they bring to the stage. The grafting, sweating, pulverizing, pounding, screaming - doing what they do best.  Entertaining an audience by spilling their hearts and souls onto the stage.  You just don’t get much more Rock ‘n Roll than that.

For 7 years Choirboys have been recording every live show, and this collection of their classic original songs is 100% Choirboys, 100% Pub Rock:  The sound and the band that Australia has come to know and love has been captured from a series of shows in venues right around the country. No auto-tune, studio adjustment; no hiding the rawness, just real live music, nothing held back.

Pub Rock 2017 will take you from the rebellious theme of Bullshit, the slow sexy groove of Fireworks and the anthem of summer Boys Will be Boy through to the ultimate denial of aging We’re Never Gonna Die and topped off with that quintessential spirit of Australia in Run To Paradise.  . 

This is an album that celebrates more than the soul of Pub Rock in Australia. It’s nostalgia from a bygone era, one that has become the biggest influence on contemporary music in Australia. The Choirboys are at the forefront and are testament to the quality and staying power of something that is far bigger than all of us.  

Pub Rock 2017 has already changed your world.   The  album is due for release in August of 2017, with a tour commencing in late October.  Pre order your copy atwww.pubrock2017com.au

In 2012 after a 21 year break, Sunnyboys re-entered the fray at the behest of Dig it Up! the Hoodoo Gurus Invitational. Performing as Kids in Dust the band had agreed to regroup “just for fun and for old times’ sake.” Six years later and Sunnyboys 2.0 have notched up a resume the envy of any band – contemporary or vintage – including a co-headline appearance to 45,000 people for A Day On The Green 2015; a succession of sold-out shows at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre and the Sydney Opera House, a venue attendance record at the Coolangatta Hotel (previously held by Noiseworks) plus sold-out shows (multiple times over) in Melbourne, Byron Bay, Perth and more.

Perhaps even more remarkable is that the 2017 edition of Sunnyboys (featuring all original members) have existed longer than the bright-eyed young men who burned so brightly back in the eighties but also burned-out so fast. The time around without the pressure of recording schedules and the demand for chart hits and with a mutual love and respect for the music they made, Sunnyboys can just do what they do best; play live.

“There’s an uplift that occurs when the band is firing on all eight, and the crowd feels it and gives it right back to you. We experienced that back in the eighties, and we’re experiencing it now. There’s nothing like it”. – Richard Burgman

And play live they will as this summer Sunnyboys will performing a series of headline shows across venues big and small, regional and urban and ALL of them expected to sell out. The band will be performing material from across their entire catalogue including their three albums for Mushroom, the infamous debut ep on the Phantom label and even the odd b-side or rarity. For the Sunnyboys, every show is a celebration.

“We really didn’t think we would ever play again as a band. But wow, we have and we sure are having a bloody great time doing it.” – Peter Oxley

“In the 80’s we burned out and the fun became hard work. The shows this time around have all been good fun and the fan reactions incredible, so while ever that lasts the band will.” – Bil Bilson

“I didn’t know if I would even enjoy it but the way we were accepted back made it like a dream come true and impossible to stop at just one show!” – Jeremy Oxley

“Some bands re-group so they can play the hit songs and fly home, pockets jangling full of money. Watching the Sunnyboys perform felt like they were making up for lost years that should have been on stage. Graciously happy to be there and genuinely thrilled by the audience participation.” – Weekend Notes.

COLIN HAY – FIERCE MERCY TOUR 2018

Colin Hay said, "Of course I am excited to be coming down to Australia, and playing both new and old songs, in the heat of the summer in January and February. How could I not be, I will be accompanied by my LA based band of immigrants, hailing from Cuba, Guatemala and Peru. By now it's more or less a family affair, and they are my favourite people, both to play and tour with. Step out and come see us, you won't regret it."

“Hay masterfully attaches shimmering diamonds of hope and happiness to a backdrop of omnipotent bleakness, a combination familiar throughout his extensive body of work." — Nashville Scene

2016 was something of a breakout year for this career artist, that included performances on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and ABC’s Greatest Hits; sharing the stage with Of Monsters and Men, Milk Carton Kids, Choir Choir Choir!, Kings of Leon; being publicly cited as an influence by artists as distinct as James Hetfield of Metallica, Jeremiah Fraites of The Lumineers, Troy Sanders of Mastodon, and The Infamous Stringdusters; as well as the completion of a documentary film about his career entitled Waiting for My Real Life, named for one of his best known solo recordings. Now finding himself in the unprecedented place of having both ’80s fame and indie credibility, it's possible that Hay has delivered the defining album of his solo career with Fierce Mercy.

Colin returns to Australia with his US Band – on guitar, tres and vocals, Cuban, San Miguel Perez, with fellow Cuban, Yosmel Montejo, on bass and vocals – Scheila Gonzalez on keyboard, flute, sax and vocals – Cecilia Noel, percussion and vocals – and Jimmy Branly on drums. This smorgasbord of international flavours, added to MAW and Colin Hay songs, will delight audiences with Latin infused rhythms and sweet harmonies. Scottish born singer-songwriter Colin Hay may be best known as the frontman for Australian hit makers Men at Work, but he has received renewed acclaim for his troubadour-style solo career. His latest album, Fierce Mercy, finds him at the top of his game. Alongside the thoughtful storytelling in his songs, Hay’s shows are peppered with hilarious anecdotes from his, often surreal, experiences in the world of rock music.

“Fierce Mercy is fiercely good stuff indeed.” LA Short & Sweet Music Reviews - Ralph Greco

FILM

A Film About Lives Transformed by the Sea To some, the ocean is a fearsome and dangerous place. But to others, it's a limitless world of fun, freedom and opportunity where life can be lived to the full. A new documentary presented by Patagonia and directed by Keith Malloy, FISHPEOPLE tells the stories of a unique cast of characters who have dedicated their lives to the sea. From surfers and spearfishers to a former coal miner and a group of at-risk kids in San Francisco, it's a film about the transformative effects of time spent in the ocean-and how we can leave our limitations behind to find deeper meaning in the saltwater wilderness that lies just beyond the shore.

BOOK

Three years in the making, Water & Light presents new and unseen visions of waves.

Ray’s renowned style ties the tremendous force and fury of an agitated sea to a blink of light in a single water droplet seamlessly - and often on the same page.

To make this book, Ray has hung harnessed out of a doorless helicopter in Hawaii, swam amongst the below freezing north Atlantic seas of Iceland, sailed through the remote and uninhabited island chains of the Indonesian archipelago, documented a once in a decade Tahitian mega swell, and driven for days on end to the desolate reefs and bomboras of Australia’s raw southern and eastern coastlines.

The two fundamental elements in every moment he captures are water and light, and the very best moments are in this book.
