Jimmy Barnes

With less than a month to go before his new album ‘Flesh & Blood’ is released Jimmy Barnes teases us with a new single: ‘’Til the Next Time’. Jimmy says, “This song is very personal. It’s about self-doubt and waking up in the middle of the night wondering if you are good enough for your family.” Listen to ‘’Til The Next Time’ here:



Bluesfest’s Rusty Thorpe spoke to Jimmy a few days ago …. and got a fascinating insight into how Jimmy Barnes goes about life, music and family. Give it a listen here:

Hiatus Kaiyote

Over the past couple of months, Hiatus Kaiyote has been teasing us with some smooth new sounds. First, it was ‘Get Sun’ feat. Brazilian-composer/arranger, Arthur Verocai; and now, they’ve unleashed the exquisite ‘Red Room’. This is all leading up to the release of a brand-new album “Mood Valiant” (their first in over half a decade!). It’s scheduled to drop on the 25th of June 2021 on Brainfeeder Records.

Ziggy Alberts

Something a little different here. Ziggy has released ‘Searching For Freedom magazine (vol 1). A collection of imagery and words by Ziggy, his closest friends and his family – all based around the question; “what does freedom mean to you, and where do you find it?” A 148-page ode to Ziggy Alberts’ latest studio album, ‘Searching For Freedom’, aims to inspire readers to continue their journey into freedom.
