Published

The beauty of rock n’ roll is every so often something completely unexpected comes your way which becomes one of your new favourite things.

For me during 2019 that new favourite thing was Clayton Bellamy & The Congregation, quite simply one of the best damn rock n’ roll records I’ve heard in a while. Not only one of the best, but easily one of the most enjoyable by far.

Known to many as guitarist of Canadian country superstars The Road Hammers, Welcome To The Congregation sees Clayton find his true musical calling, preaching the gospel of peace, love, understanding & rock n’ roll.

He’s just released the latest single + video ‘The Devil I Know’ which you can checkout below…

The Witching Hour Deal With Mental Illness & Homelessness On New Single ‘Sleep With The Stars’

Published

on

You know that feeling when you hear a band for the first time and think to yourself, how the hell haven’t I heard of these guys until now? Well I just had that feeling after having the latest single ‘Sleep With The Stars’ from Central Coast based Rockers The Witching Hour sent through to me.

The Witching Hour have just released their formidable new single ‘Sleep With The Stars’. The single touches on the connection between crippling mental illness and homelessness in Australia.

The Witching Hour create a timeless brand of Hard Rock and display musical maturity well beyond their years.

From teenage dreams to the law of attraction, the genesis of The Witching Hour was spawned on the Central Coast of NSW in the Australian town of Gosford.

The band debuted in 2019 with the release of their single ‘Lay You Down’. The single quickly reached No.1 on the Triple J Unearthed charts.

The boys have since released two more singles (‘Under My Skin’ and ‘The Ritual’) which both topped the charts on Triple J Unearthed. With three consecutive No.1’s within 12 months, The Witching Hour ranked 11th out of the Top 20 Most Played on Triple J Unearthed 2019.

New single ‘Sleep With The Stars’ is available on all major online stores.

“This turned my bones to dust and my blood to sludge. A real torrent of old school hard rock beef.”
Dave Ruby Howe – Triple J

AshenMoon Release Debut EP ‘Umbra I’

Published

AshenMoon Band Photo

AshenMoon have without doubt been one of my favourite musical discoveries of 2020.


Epic & soaring soundscapes are the backdrop to songs that will inspire, challenge & provoke your inner self. This is just the beginning of a grand journey for AshenMoon.

An inspired merging of powerhouse vocalist Toby Rand, former INXS bassist Gary Beers, and some scorching guitars from Jimmy Khoury who comes with a pedigree of touring with Beth Hart and working with Tom Petty’s HeartBreakers.

AshenMoon are fast establishing themselves as a rock powerhouse – having already released 4 stunning singles for Golden Robot Records, the 4-piece has now released their long awaited debut EP, UMBRA I.

Echoing melodies of protest and liberation, UMBRA I is a reflective monologue drawing on human connection and environmental condition.  Anthemic, yet magnetically intimate, Rand’s vocals traverse over the undeniable grooves of Beers (former INXS bassist) whilst Khoury’s guitars shine with soulful glee. Beers’ undeniable rhythm and swagger highlight the evolution of his songwriting & experience since the last INXS record. Mixer (multi-Grammy winner) David Reitzas captures the raw energy of the live instrumentation and fuses AM’s sound. An electrifying mixture of 70’s, new-wave and modern rock. 

Check out my recent chat with Toby Rand right here…

The first installment of a 2-part EP release, UMBRA I draws on Rand’s longing for inner and outer peace. With the world constantly facing new turmoils, his motto “The World Outside Is Born Within” is evident in the lyrical yearning for unity. AM’s underlying theme of self-discovery and sifting through the darkness in your mind will have you thinking of ways to overcome your battles and find your voice – Apt for the current climate we live in.  

Check out the EP on your favourite digital platform or if you’re lucky, you might still be able to snare a physical autographed copy of the EP direct from AshenMoon.
