Carla Wehbe

Carla Wehbe new Single ‘Don’t Tell Me’

Sydney-based singer, songwriter, musician and producer, Carla Wehbe today presents her new solo project with debut single, ‘Don’t Tell Me

As an artist, Carla Wehbe successfully merges current pop melodies with an edgy 80’s nostalgia, as showcased on her glowing debut ‘Don’t Tell Me’; a confident and catchy pop moment drenched in bold self-assurance. ‘Don’t Tell Me’ was inspired by a night out when, while looking for a friend in a bar, Carla was confronted by a man who asked, “Would it kill you to smile?”.

The frustration of this comment whirred around in Carla’s head for days following, intensifying and expanding as it did. “It was such a pointless and unhelpful thing to say, “ Carla explains, “If I don’t feel like smiling I’m not going to for the sake of making someone else feel more comfortable.”

Sheppard

The new single ‘M.I.A.’ is indicative of the album more broadly, an upbeat stomper preaching self-determination and the overall message of ‘Kaleidoscope Eyes’: living your life on your own terms.
The album comes off the back of their 2018 ARIA #1 album ‘Watching The Sky’ as well as five gold, platinum and multi-platinum releases, including the worldwide smash hits ‘Geronimo’ and ‘Coming Home’. Proudly still based in Brisbane and taking on both the industry and life on their own terms, the Sheppard siblings have settled into a genuine space on their new album, presenting the music they want in the way they choose and opening themselves up to fans like they never have before.

“The release today of ‘Kaleidoscope Eyes’ feels like the end of a journey as well as the opening of a new door to the future,” said George Sheppard. “As a band and as siblings, this new album has been a real journey of growth, bringing our fans along for the ride as each single has been revealed and shown a new side to who we are. Whether it’s been coming to terms with years of global touring, figuring out who we are as people in the public eye, or simply discovering who we are and what we want to say as musicians, ‘Kaleidoscope Eyes’ has been about that discovery. We know that so many of our fans have been on that same journey with us over the last twelve months as the rolling out of the album has coincided with such a tumultuous time of self-discovery for all of us in world history.”

Whether through the ubiquitous ‘Geronimo’, Amy Sheppard’s inspirational ‘Kiss My Fat Ass’ campaign against body shaming, George’s famous entry to Rock In Rio via zipline or their tours with artists like Justin Bieber, Meghan Trainor, Keith Urban and Elton John, Sheppard are simply a Brisbane family taking life as it comes and letting the world in on their incredible journey.
“In the end, on our journey so far we’ve learned that there’s only two things in life you can control– your attitude and your art and with ‘Kaleidoscope Eyes’ we’re proud of what we have produced and we look forward to what comes next now it’s found its place in the world with our fans,” said George Sheppard. “We are eternally grateful for everyone across the world who have chosen to be on this positive journey with us.”

Sofi Tukker

The group has also shared a new single and video from the EP for “Swing”, a crowd favourite at their live shows.

SOFI TUKKER says of “Swing”,”This song always felt like an epic battle song. It’s more like a chant than a song, really. It’s called “Swing” because we literally swing the song after Tuck says that. We collaborated with the Brazilian poet, Chacal, and the words are about words!! Like a lot of the things we do with Chacal, part of the meaning of it is just how nonsensical it is. It’s really about how delicious and delightful and also meaningless words ultimately are.

Vanessa Amorosi

The Blacklisted Collection is the sixth studio album by Australian singer-songwriter Vanessa Amorosi. It was released on 26 June 2020 and is Amorosi’s first independent release The album consists of re-recorded songs or demos that were not included on previous albums. Amorosi told The Music Network “It’s interesting why they might not have been included, didn’t the sound work? Were the lyrics too intense? Didn’t it make sense for them to be included on a pop record?” saying that releasing the these was “so liberating for me because I’d been wanting to get these songs out for such a long time. It also includes some songs written and released within a week.

The album was preceded by nine singles, released weekly leading up to the album’s release. Amorosi said “Now that we have released nine singles every Monday I can understand why it is not done. Because it is really hard.”

The Buckleys

Some songs just need the right stars to align to shine brightly.

Byron Bay’s The Buckleys “Money” is one such song.

Let me tell you the story.

Last October I was in Byron on holiday and caught up with my good friends, Trevor and Jan Smith. We had dinner and they talked about the radio and video special they had recently done for THE BUCKLEYS.

This is where it gets interesting.

The band are on Petrol, Chris Murphy’s label (the only other artist on this label is INXS.) The backstory is the band’s father is Mick Buckley, who is a friend and was the drummer for The Radiators, who my first client when I left EMI in 1985. Mick also attended my wedding, 36 years ago.

I had previously worked with Chris Murphy in the 90’s and knew him well. I called Chris and told him I wanted to work with the band and we did the deal in December, three weeks before Chris’ untimely death from cancer.

He had arranged for the song to be remixed and get set for the release that is in your inbox now.
“Money” has been remixed by Charlie Holmes, who works with Mike Stent in his UK studio. This new mix provides a refreshing feel to the original, in honour of the late CM Murphy.

Portia Clark

HOW IT HAPPENED

Not long ago Portia was homeless yet her fighting spirit which she inherited from her father who died in conflict as a Freedom Fighter in South Africa where he was fighting apartheid is what kept her going and by chance back
stage at a performance in Minneapolis, Portia crossed paths with country music legend and Hootie & The Blowfish lead singer, Darius Rucker.
Portia was invited by Darius back to his green room with his band where they had a Corona and Portia wasn’t shy to ask Darius for a song in the future together, Darius responded with no hesitations “for sure”.

The duet stayed in touch and when Darius came down under for an Aussie tour he reached out to Portia for a catch up at his Sydney show where the opportunity for the duet was advanced and Portia was introduced by Darius to his keys player Lee Turner, an aspiring and talented Nashville producer and song writer.

Portia later joined Darius in Nashville and they hit the studio where Portia was mesmerised every time Darius hit his famous note from Hootie and the Blowfish’s “Let her Cry” hit.

When Darius was recently asked about the ensuing release, he shared:
“Portia has an incredible voice and a powerful story. I was honoured to join her for such a beautiful song.”
