William Alexander brings the songs of his latest EP “Garlic Pickin’ Time” to the Old Church in Bendigo.
The captivating voice and guitar picking of 23 year old folk/western singer William Alexander are fast becoming more and more recognizable in the Australian music industry through his roaming performance tours across many stages as well as through many a turntable as folks go about their lives with his AIR Award nominated record “The Kid From Bourke” painting the backdrop.
Folks will now be able possess a new piece of work from the yodelling songster in the form of his brand-new extended play release, “Garlic Pickin’ Time”. The EP was released on September 20th 2019 through Melbourne based independent record label Green South Records. It is the second offering from the partnership of Alexander and recording engineer and owner of Sound Recordings Alex Bennett (C.W. Stoneking, Archer). Recorded live in the Campbells Creek studio on Saturday February 2nd 2019 with Cat Moser (Cat and Clint) returning to her regular role on the fiddle as well as Steve James (Slippry Sid) on the Hawaiian style steel guitar and dobro.
Melbourne folk singer-songwriter Nathan Power kicks off 2020 with a little national tour to launch new single ‘Wildfire’, a boppy bluegrass number dwelling on how love can burn and die with little rhyme or reason.
2020 sees the launch of Nathan’s second album and shows around the country including at Nightjar Festival and Knox Festival.
2019 was busy for Melbourne folk artist Nathan Power with international appearances, two national tours and almost a hundred shows including slots at Yackandandah Folk Festival, Bendigo Blues, Nimbin Roots and Frankston Waterfront Festival.
Borrowing from the folk, blues and bluegrass worlds, Nathan’s music is dark and rich, combining childhood stories of growing up Africa with a cynical take on modern life. Think Leonard Cohen meets Lloyd Cole, wrapped in a toe-tapping bluegrass band including double bass, mandolin and guitar.
