Blake O’Connor not only won the biggest competition in Australian Country Music in 2019, Toyota Star Maker, which places him with the likes of previous winners Keith Urban and The McClymonts, he was recently nominated in Australia’s biggest Country Music Awards Night for Male Artist of the Year and won the Qantas New Talent of the Year Golden Guitar Award. With an amazing voice and guitar skills, and having already appeared at last year’s CMA Fest in Nashville, Blake is destined for a great future in country music.
When Gasoline & Matches make music, an explosion of creativity ignites. Clever thought out lyrics, close harmonies and melodic guitar licks pull you in. No stranger to success and notoriety, two-time British Country Music Association ‘Duo of the Year’ and Birmingham Music Awards ‘Best Folk/Country Act’, chart-topping Gasoline & Matches are known for delivering sharp, energetic performances, with playful humour and serious musicianship.
Scottish born singer songwriter Sandy McLelland released his very successful new album ‘Cross The Line on 18th September. 2019. The music in ‘Cross the Line’ is unashamedly rooted in the American country, blues, folk and soul music he absorbed in his early days in Glasgow. In addition to being a three-time Grammy winner, Sandy has won many awards during his long and illustrious career. Often full and vibrant, sometimes achingly bare and personal, Sandy is capable and comfortable across many, diverse, musical styles, always with a highly personal core.
Fiercely Indie, Nashville based, multi-million selling recording artist Jeremy McComb is a road tested, relentless touring performer, who has an incredible magic trick of audience connection. Jeremy is an entertainer and a story-teller, with a live show that allows no false notes and makes sure nothing goes without being tied together for the purpose of a set-up and a pay-off. Blending his knack for stories that bring crowds from full laughs to pin drop silence, Jeremy’s connection with you, as a part of the experience, is un-matched, while still true, organic, real and raw.
