Georgia State Line(Solo) + Patrick Wilson

Georgia State Line(Solo) + Patrick Wilson

After up and quitting their day jobs, alt-country singer songwriters, Georgia Delves (Georgia State Line) and Patrick Wilson (The Bare River Queens) are moving into a van and teaming up for a duo tour across Feb/ March/ April throughout NSW/ QLD. 

Patrick Wilson totes an old time country sound that is reminiscent of Guy Clark and Steve Young. With songwriting at the forefront, Wilson pushes the boundaries of Americana in an attempt to define the relatively new genre.  Whilst Delves cites taking inspiration from the classics of Linda Ronstadt and current exponents within the Nashville singer-songwriter scene- Kelsey Waldon & Courtney Marie Andrews, centring her writing on the bittersweet balancing act between growing up and staying young.

Together the pair have performed at Tamworth Country Music Festival, Australian Music Week, Dashville Skyline Festival and supported country legends, The Bellamy Brothers. Continuing to make waves, the pair are not to be missed. 

"Many Australian artists refer to themselves as Americana or alt country these days, but very few deliver the real thing as well as Georgia State Line."

 “I heard Patrick Wilson sing for the first time in a small studio in Melbourne. His voice and his songs blew me away.”
- Bill Chambers

James Mcq

James Mcq

Semi insomniac and multi instrumentalist James Mcq grew up restless writing a dismantled catalogue of folk rock songs on the East Coast of Victoria. Through his early teens James began playing and writing with numerous surf/psych bands, headlining rural pub venues and selling out small house concerts.

James hastily expanded out of the local scene inexorably abandoning the coast for the city to establish his solo career. Going back to his roots and picking up his acoustic guitar, James’ focus on storytelling though dark ballads has already seen him play some of the most significant festivals in WA such as The Nannup Folk festival, as well as opening up for artists such as King of the North on their sold out tour. He plans to release his debut EP in late 2018.

Dan Parson

Dan Parson

With an eagerly anticipated new album due for release in mid 2018, Dan Parsons hits the road in March for a solo tour of the east coast.

As a songwriter, Parsons explores the triumphs and anxieties of the human experience, conjuring up the sun-hazed days of Laurel Canyon’s classic troubadours, combined with a cinematic shine of the iPhone generation.
 
Working as a highly sought-after multi-instrumentalist, he has inhabited the drummer’s seat for Kate Miller-Heidke on her international tours throughout the USA, and currently for Ella Hooper’s solo work, as well as playing lead guitar for Tracy McNeil & The GoodLife who appeared at AmericanaFest in Nashville, USA. With his own music, Parsons has toured extensively across Australia and has appeared at Musexpo in Los Angeles, as well as The Great Escape Festival and Liverpool Sound City in the UK.

With his latest single, Here Goes Nothin spending time at #1 on the AMRAP Regional Charts and described as “a modern slice of old-school country funk…” (Henry Wagons, Double J), Parsons is ready to road test this new batch of songs that take the listener riding through canyons, across silver oceans and launching into the interstellar.

Rory Ellis

Rory Ellis

Having worked in various Melbourne acts since 1989, Rory started his solo acoustic journey in 1998, working in bars and festivals around Australia. Some include Port Fairy Folk Festival, Apollo Bay Music Festival, The National Folk Festival, Blue Mountains Blues and Roots, Queenscliff Music Festival and Tamworth Country Music Festival where Rory has performed as part of the Fender Roadcases show alongside Troy Cassar Daley, The McLymonts, Tommy Emmanuel, Gina Jeffreys and countless other country stars.

The incredible response to his live show prompted the release of his first solo album Ride in 2000. It was released to much critical acclaim, a huge spread by Iian Sheddon in The Australian and was lovingly produced by Dave Steel, (ex Weddings Parties Anything, Archie Roach, Kasey Chambers). Lyall Johnson of the Melbourne Age said, “If you’re not deeply moved by this superb debut by Melbourne singer-songwriter Rory Ellis, it’s doubtful you’re human.”

Since that release Rory has gone from strength to strength and It was in 2004 Rory decided to head overseas to England and he has toured there every year since, anywhere from 3-9 months each tour. A real troubadour doing it on floors, couches, shoestrings and human kindness to make it work and deliver his piece of real life Australia, not what they saw on Neighbours.

Whilst in England and more recently Europe his travels have seen him perform alongside many greats including Richie Havens, Robert Cray, Canned Heat, Eric Bibb and has performed at many of the largest UK Blues and Roots Festivals including Great British R&B Festival, Shetland Folk Festival, Larmer Tree Festival, Stokes Bay Festival, Maryport Blues Festival, Eastleigh Festival, Linton Festival, Worthenbury Festival, Midlewich Festival, Chagstock, and countless others, with revisits due to popular demand.

Rory released The Rushes in 2005, where Jeff Glorfeld of the Melbourne Age said, “When the big fella opens up his chest and lets fly with that lusty, rumbling voice, even then it’s as if he’s pulling back on the reins in fear of what might happen to innocent bystanders – it’s that potent.”

To accompany this extensive touring, Rory continued his prolific amount of songwriting and recording leading to the release of his 4th (Two Feathers – 2008), 5th (Perfectly Damaged – 2010) and 6th (Twisted Willow – 2012) studio albums. Each of these releases garnering Rory more fans and more critical acclaim.

Brett Callwood of UK’s major roots publication Acoustic magazine said “Rory Ellis is one of those singer/songwriters, like Leonard Cohen, who makes the hairs on your arms stand up by simply opening his mouth and uttering a few throaty words.” Twisted Willow, received a 4 star review in the Melbourne Age, with Jeff Glorgeld saying, “Ellis’ songs are full of keen impressions and feelings, sung in a voicethat is always true and expressive.”

Followed up by more intense touring here and abroad in 2013 and 2014, and a 3 month UK stint at the end of 2014 and into 2015, early 2015 saw the release of Yellow, a dedication of 15 brilliantly crafted songs to the life of his mum. Something that will resonate with everyone. Sam Fell of Rhythms Magazine stated of this “Rarely does someone put such truth and honesty into their music.”
