Independent blues/soul troubadour Shaun Kirk has come a long way since his debut release in 2010, earning him accolades such as “one of the most explosive solo acts Australia has to offer” and “one of the finest blues voices this country has ever heard”. His maiden record ‘Cruising’ was awarded ‘Best Debut Album’ at the 2010 VIC/TAS Blues Music Awards, whilst his second album, ‘Thank You for Giving Me the Blues’ shot to number 1 on the Australian Blues/Roots Airplay Charts in early 2012. Kirk’s third release, ‘The Wick Sessions’; a live in the studio CD/DVD package, climbed as high as #3 on the Amrap AirIt Great Southern Charts. It also charted in the USA, reaching #6 on the Smokestack Lightning Radio Playlist amongst the likes of Buddy Guy, Gary Clark Jr, Tedeschi Trucks Band and Charlie Musslewhite. Shaun went on to release a five-track EP in late 2013 entitled ‘Giving’. It was Kirk’s second release in the space of 12 months, acting as a teaser for the forthcoming full-length album ‘Steer the Wheel’ which included three live tracks, showcasing his natural ability to engage an audience when he takes to the stage….

Bluesy, funky, soulful, rocking, colourful, fun, relaxed and intense are strokes which only begin to sketch the joyously uncategorisable sound of Broadfoot, the popular Far North Coast band with members drawn from Mullumbimby and Byron Bay. Ever attuned to the vibe of their diverse audiences, Broadfoot unleash the twin genies of dance and delight across the NSW North Coast and beyond with a heady and ever evolving mix of original material.

Tullara Connors (Siskin River)
Siskin River (Shalane & Tullara) hail from Ramornie -the quiet, forgotten countryside on the outskirts of Grafton NSW. The pair dubbed themselves ‘Siskin River’ in the December summer of 2011 and set out on the road, writing, composing, and booking as they go. During three years of non-stop touring, the sisters have taken ‘Cabin Fever’ to brave new heights, living and working out the back of their trusty wagon “The Siskimobile”. Starting out on the Australian pub circuit, the pair honed their craft whilst learning how to connect with drunken audiences, and soon enough found themselves featuring at an astounding number of music festivals and venues across Australia. Following two EP releases, their much anticipated (long awaited) DEBUT ALBUM ‘The Hours They Keep’ was finally released in August 2014.
