Interview with Clayton Bellamy, Welcome To The Congregation!

Published

on

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 in 2019 that new favourite thing has been 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.

Published

on

In the late 90’s and early 00’s the Aussie Alt Rock scene was at it’s peak dominating Triple J airwaves, filling festival lineups and Elephant Gun were right in the thick of things.

Signed to Roadrunner Records, touring with The Screaming Jets, Shihad, Grinspoon, Sunk Loto, Powderfinger, Magic Dirt and hitting the main stage of the 1998/99 Falls Festival and even the Big Day Out.

Fast forward now to 2020 and their new album Now To Survive is out via Dinner For Wolves. The first taste of that album has been the massive riffs and rock n roll energy of Kill Street Blues and I recently caught up with Sean Dennis, Elephant Gun bass player to chat about the origins of the new album, we dive into some of the bands history and look forward to what lies ahead on the horizon for Elephant Gun in 2021.

Be sure to stay tuned to the Elephant Gun Facebook Page for news of a pending Vinyl release, as well as check out the killer merch over on their Merch Page.

Sydney Singer / Songwriter Dean Ray recently released his stripped back ‘4 Trak Sessions Volume One’

Setting a challenge earlier this year, Dean set out to release 1 song per week….and this stiring album is the result.

I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Dean, a raw and candid chat about the impact that 2020 has had on him personally and also his plans musically this year.

Impacts in a way, which are captured musically in the first single from the album, Survive, which you’ll hear during this chat.

We discuss new music that is currently in the works that sees Dean plugging in the electric guitars and we also have a special guest drop in for a chat in the form of Dean’s dog Max.

With Dean having just played his first live gig in Sydney, we start off the chat chatting about the feeling of being back on stage.

Andrew Farriss chats about his first solo release ‘Love Makes The World’ EP

Published

on

It was an honour to recently chat with legendary songwriter Andrew Farriss, who has just released his debut 5 track EP titled Love Makes The World.

With his planned album release pushed back to 2021 due to the pandemic, this release is a bonus for fans of Andrew Farris, with the EP featuring songs that maybe otherwise wouldn’t have been released.

The songs written over the course of prior years and which feature co-writes with Suze DeMarchi, Jon Stevens, Keiran Gribbin and Guy Chambers are ironically super relevant to the events of 2020.  With themes such as belonging, mental health, suicide, love, conservation and the evolution of human kind featuring in the lyrics.

Sit back and enjoy this chat where we talk about the pivotal moment on horseback when Andrew knew it was time to commit to being a solo performer, we dive into the background to one of my favourite tracks on the EP and with October 14th the day we spoke being the 35th anniversary of INXS’s Listen Like Thieves release, Andrew shares his memories of that albums iconic single What You Need.

With Andrew having run a farm in country NSW now for the last 28 years, we kick off the chat talking about the impact of droughts, leading into bushfires and now the pandemic..

Head over to www.andrewfarriss.com to purchase a physical copy of the EP and more info & news.
