After a such a tough year, it’s great to see the covid numbers currently so low, opening up opportunities for our live music scene to come back and entertain us all. In our new series FESTIVE FEELS, artists around Australia are offering us their seasons greetings, letting us know what they have planned for the holiday season, and also placing their requests for musical gift ideas in the hope that Santa will be kind to them! Check out our first bunch of well-wishers!
Chris Watts stops in to offer us his seasons greetings and he’s really hoping Santa drops a brand new Ibanez TS9 Ibanez Tube Screamer under the tree Christmas morning! Since his arrival in 2015, Chris Watts has stepped forward as an artist that consistently delivers powerful songwriting and storytelling. With comparisons to Shawn Mendes and 5SOS, this Melbourne singer and multi-instrumentalist has already supported international artists such as Robbie Williams and Elton John. Now he returns with his new single ‘Over U’ – a gritty, beat driven track that sounds like the love child of Marilyn Manson and Shawn Mendez. A genre bending dark bop. #AustralianMusician #IbanezTR9TubeScreamer
Curly Blonde is Brynn O’Connor and Fergus Selkirk-Bell. Shimmering indie rock/pop up and comers Curly Blonde have recently dropped their latest single Room 309, a sun-soaked track which, despite its blissful exterior, deals with the feeling of being dissatisfied with how life has turned out. The duo have also released a video to accompany the track, perfectly in keeping with Room 309’s exploration of monotony. Brynn and Fergus took the time to wish us all well for the holiday season and let us know what they’re hoping to find under their Christmas Tree this year #AustralianMusician #EpiphoneCasino
