TiMBAH

TiMBAH, Australia’s answer to the Dave Matthews Band, tour relentlessly and – like their North American spiritual siblings – invariably win over crowds where ever they go with their lively brand of folk-jazz-rock-blues fusion.

In the beginning just two brothers, TiMBAH now moves a variety of audiences from their seats with a strong and talented outfit of five. Lead by the intricate guitar work and age-less voice of Nye Stewart, and backed by the rollicking percussion of brother Abe; TiMBAH’s nucleus inspires all.

Rivalling many folk frenzies’ among us, TiMBAH would not be complete without their remaining dedicated ensemble; jamming on anything from fiddle to banjo, harp, clarinet, bass, keyboard, or melodica. Emerging from the low end, steadfast and smooth, comes Nick Warren on the Bass radiating spicy and electrifying grooves. Bursting from the seams the exceptionally talented Nicholas ‘springy’ Springall emits a unique phalanges’ dance on keyboard. While the poignant, yet energetic violin, poking jovially between riffs by Christopher Gillespie enhances every song.

TiMBAH are a uniquely gifted and charismatic collective. Bounding between genres with creative poise and diversifying musicianship this band will continue to pave the path to musical greatness!

Something Good

 

Bellingen band Something Good take you on a world tour. The band plays a diverse range of styles from English ska, Eastern European folk, Irish jigs, American pop, Australian Indie Rock and more; sometimes all in the one song!

The band features original songs from Tim Scanlon (vocals, guitar, mandolin) and a whole host of very talented musicians such as Hugo Marree (violin, vocals), Enrico Malcisi (keyboards, piano accordian), Darren Lee (drums, vocals), Nic Cobcroft (trumpet), Nick Hopper (bass) and Marg Hopper (percussion, vocals).

The band recently launched their debut album “Head for the sun” but the songs keep coming; the band will be returning to the studio later in the year to record Album no. 2.

So hold onto your hats and catch this rare feast of world music.

The Stained Daisies

Local lads with a sound that harks back to the
rock and roll days of old

The Stained Daisies arrived on the music scene mid 2013, cutting their teeth in the back rooms of the legendary pubs and clubs across the Northern Rivers of New South Wales. They immersed themselves in it the old way. The beer drenched carpets of venues as their stage.
With a rock’n roll swagger, soaring harmonies and stories you can fall in to, the four piece have released their self titled debut E.P “The Stained Daisies”. This six track release epitomises what the Stained Daisies are all about.
With a sound that harks back to the rock and roll days of old, and a live performance that lingers long in the memory, The Stained Daisies’ catchy hooks will leave you humming long after the dust has settled.

“While we are influenced quite a bit by various genres including blues, Brit alt. and straight up rock and roll, our sound developed organically and where we have ended up is a coming together of all our influences” says Dan. “Music, our friends, family and yeah, the smoke, stickiness and attitudes of our local watering holes have all played their part. We think we managed to capture that on the E.P which we are all very pleased about”.

WITH THEIR EYES TO THE SKY BUT THEIR FEET FIRMLY PLANTED ON THE GROUND, THE STAINED DAISIES ARE HEADING YOUR WAY. BEST STRAP YOURSELF IN.
