Legendary US artist Robben Ford to tour Australia in May, 2022.
Headline performances at Blues on Broadbeach, with Newcastle, Melbourne, Sydney & Adelaide side shows added.
Presented by Gerard Allman Events.
Renowned American artist Robben Ford returns to Australia in May 2022 for headline appearances at Blues on Broadbeach, and a run of not-to-be-missed exclusive dates in Melbourne (Memo Music Hall), Sydney (Factory Theatre), Newcastle (Lizotte’s) and Adelaide (The Gov). As an added treat, Ford will be bringing his band with him – Doug Belote on Drums, Andy Hess on Bass and Jovan Quallo on Keys and Sax.
Melbourne fuzz-rock band Devil Electric have just released their highly anticipated new album, Godless. The record is a collection of ideas and experiences that can simply be described as “the next evolution” of their sound. While keeping true to the band’s DNA, you’ll still find the heavy grooves and tones of 70’s inspired hard rock as Godless takes it one step further by peeling back to a rather more LoFi sound, a credit to producer Julian Schweitzer who worked with the band on the album.
“It also reminded festival bookers that you don’t need to book overseas acts to get the talent you need to pack out big festivals. Sure, we’re keen for visitors again, but giving those spots to Australian artists is proving a big win for everyone.”triple j

GROUNDBREAKER – Soul To Soul Released – 12/11/21 Frontiers Music
I will never apologise for any inherent bias in
a review, but I am happy to admit that Steve Overland has been able to
do no wrong in my eyes, from the early days of Wildlife in 1980, through
to FM who have been one my all-time favourite bands to the present day,
and are still recording and playing live.

PLUSH – Self-titled album Released – Oct 29th 2021 Pavement Entertainment
The Press Release and the photo give a pretty immediate impression of what to expect from this upcoming release, and while one might think that the band is a modern-day creation of some A&R Svengali thinking we need another Runaways or Donnas – one listen to the opening track from Plush smashes those preconceptions pretty comprehensively.
