15 years in the making, and Aussie rockers JET are back in the swing of it, using the 15th Anniversary of their debut album GET BORN as an excuse to get out and re-introduce themselves to the kids who bought the record back in 2003, and who are now in their early thirties and perhaps better able to appreciate quality songs and great live performance than they were!

Dear Willow is the creative voice of Sunshine Coast based artist Em-J Dau. Since 2012 Dear Willow has transformed from poet to a solo acoustic act and embraced her sound through a full band. A testament to its creator’s talent, Dear Willow is both Em-J’s nom de plume and her persona artistica: a vessel that can change shape and direction, allowing her to truly explore her creativity.
New single HOLD is a cautionary lament documenting the artist’s experiences of frustration in feeling simultaneously stuck, and rushed forward, with the gentle undertones of a friend breaking bad news. This latest release has a tapestry of intricate layers whilst the focus still remains on Dear Willow’s original foundations. The result is soulful, melodically organic and unapologetically real.

Newcastle has always played host to international bands. It’s just that it has never been with the same kind of frequency of our neighbours south to Sydney. In fact, my very first proper concert experience was Pantera when they played the Newcastle Entertainment Centre on their Far Beyond Driven tour.
Singer/songwriter JOSHUA RADIN (USA) is bringing his self proclaimed “whisper rock” to Australia for an evening of intimate and deeply personal performances (May 2018). We caught up with Joshua ahead of his Australian tour dates.
