Mitch Power has spent the better part of the last year driving all around this country on the back of his debut release “No One’s Waiting Anymore” and is finally bringing some shows back to Melbourne. Mitch’s EP was a finalist in the Australian Roots Music Awards for “Best EP of 2016″ and is described as “A tender assemblage of bruised and bristling country tunes that exudes technical skill and conviction.” Mitch Power is a heartache troubadour, an accomplished guitarist and a songwriter who knows how to find just the right balance between poetry, musicality and storytelling.

 

Jayson Watkin

The saying “life is a rollercoaster” has been long held as a universal truth. It’s not hard to see why. Some of us hold on for dear life, while others jump the tracks. The stretch of rail beneath Australian songwriter Jayson Watkin has taken some intriguing turns over the past seven years.

The Far North Queensland native released an acclaimed debut record in 2009 that brought him a hard-earned taste of success. However, he was unable to ride the wave and Watkin soon found himself on a journey of self sabotage, plummeting him into heartbreak.  These slings and arrows are laid bare on the new record, Lifeboat.

Watkin’s first album, Rain of Mercy, spawned a hit single, ‘Jacky Kneebone’, and announced him as a songwriter that demanded attention. With little effort, over 5000 copies found their way into Australian homes and Watkin held the number one spot on Brisbane’s 98.9FM All Australian Top 20 for six weeks, collected a coveted Qsong award and received a nomination for male vocalist of the year at the Queensland Country Music Awards.
