The Wolfe Brothers & LOCASH – Startin’ Something


The Wolfe Brothers, team up with their good mates LOCASH for their latest barnstormer ” Startin’ Something “. Hailed by the band as “a party starter from Tasmania to Tennessee,” the track sure does deliver. With a sonic vibe reminiscent of the international clinking of a Cascade Blue tinnie to a Budweiser brewski, this duet brings together two much-loved duos with a generous helping of bravado and cheer. A good time tune, and a sure-fire hit, the release comes hot on the heels The Wolfe Brother’s 14 th consecutive Aus Country Airplay #1 “Anybody Ever”.

Produced by Lindsay Rimes (Luke Bryan, Kane Brown, Kylie Minogue) “Startin’ Something” captures a similarly joyful fusion of country, rock and pop as previous single, “No Brakes” on which The Wolfe Brothers previously collaborated with Rimes. Written with Jordan Brooker (Luke Combs) back in 2016, the stars aligned as the brothers emerged from their award-winning album “Country Heart “to write the new record. Revisiting their back catalogue, the 2016 “Startin’ Something” write was reimagined, as bassist Tom Wolfe says: “We wanted to make a record we could play live anywhere – from the back of a truck at a BNS Ball to a stadium. ‘Startin’ Something’ seemed to be one of those songs that kept giving us that feeling”.

Billboard Country Airplay chart toppers and 2019 American Country Music “Duo of Year “nominees LOCASH will need no introductions; and with a haul of Golden Guitars to their name The Wolfe Brothers are no slouches in the accolade category themselves. This pairing promises great things and delivers in spades. As The Wolfe Brothers put it: “Our paths first crossed back in 2016 when the LOCASH single ‘I Love This Life’ was dominating the charts and it was just awesome to be on the same stage! Fast forward to now and we’re on the same record label with BBR Music Group/BMG. We seized the opportunity to reach out and the rest is history!”.

“Startin’ Something” is the third single released from The Wolfe Brother’s fifth album “Kids On Cassette” now announced for release on July 30th . “We’ve pushed ourselves into new areas, feels and sounds for this record – It’s got heart, soul and a lot of fun in this one!” says Tom of the impending release. The first album released following the band’s signing at BBR Music Group/BMG, vocalist/ lead guitarist Nick Wolfe says “I can’t wait for people to hear Kids on Cassette. We’re really proud of the end result and just can’t wait to play the songs live!”.

The brothers both acknowledge the massive support the new songs have received from their fans. With their last “Anybody Ever” still in the Top 20 after spent 29 weeks in the Australia Country Airplay chart and “No Brakes ” before that, spending 22 weeks in the Top 20 it’s clear that The Wolfe Brothers are a band at the top of their game. With songs of this caliber, “Kids on Cassette” promises to be a crowd pleaser, and one thing is for sure the brothers can’t wait to share it!

The Wolfe Brothers new single “Startin’ Something” is available digitally now and will be released to radio on 30 May 2021. Pre-orders for new album “Kids on Cassette” go live 28 May 2021. Kids on Cassette will be released on 30 July 2021. For more information visit:

Jason McGregor – That’s Why We’re Here

‘That’s Why We’re Here’ was born in the car on the way home from the airport after live gigs, when Jason was chatting with Adam Brand about why they toured and played shows across the country. “We were talking about what the point of getting out there and playing shows was. It’s all about taking people out of the world that they arrive from and bringing them into the moment they are in now and getting them into that show right at the time”, Jason states.

Combined with his warm, passionate vocal tone likened to John Mayer and James Morrison, Jason McGregor is energetic versatile and a much sought-after talent whose soulful performances have captivated and moved both local and international audiences over the past 16 years.

A national finger style guitar champion and endorsee for Fenech guitars, he has toured and performed with such notable performers as country star Adam Brand, The Voice’s Luke Kennedy and Naomi Price, and Australian Idol Finalist Paulini.

Winner of ‘The People’s Choice Award 2016’ at the Gold Coast Music Awards, Jason’s other accolades include winning in three categories for the Australian Songwriter Awards, and taking home a QMusic Award with Gold Coast local legends group, The Lamplights.

Leading as one of Australia’s most sought-after talents, Jason is a very engaging performer whose guitar magic leaves audiences spellbound wherever he plays as Tommy Emmanuel himself enthuses. “I am very impressed with Jason as a player and a person,” says Tommy.

“One of the great joys in music is hearing young players who can blow your socks off with technical skill, attitude and enthusiasm. One such guitarist is Jason McGregor.” (Australian Guitar Magazine).

Andrew Swift feat. Cass Hopetoun – Say the Word

Andrew Swift has gone from strength to strength since making his dive into the Australian country music scene. In 2017, he was a Toyota Starmaker Grand-Finalist; going on to release his album, ‘Call Out for the Cavalry’, which hit the #1 spot on the ARIA Australian Country Album Chart and win at the 2019 Golden Guitar Awards for Qantas New Talent of the Year & for Alt Country Album of the Year. In 2021, Andrew would go on to co-host the Golden Guitar Awards.

In 2020, Andrew signed with ABC Music and released the first single from his forthcoming new album. Never Meant To Break Your Heart, the single, went onto secure Andrew’s highest National Country Airplay chart to date – peaking at #4.

His 2nd single release, Right On Down, also climbed the charts peaking at #9 on the National Country Airplay Charts. His latest single, Head Full of Honey, also landed in the Top 10; reaching #7 on the National Airplay Chart.

Now Andrew drops a new track, Say The Word featuring Cass Hopetoun, giving fans another taste from his forthcoming album release, ‘The Art of Letting Go’ . As Andrew describes the song, “If you’ve ever had a connection with someone and the timing just hasn’t worked out, I’m sure you’ll be able to relate to this song. About halfway through writing Say The Word with Phil Barton, I suggested we make it a duet. I thought that as a duet it would add another level as to why the two characters hadn’t got together yet as they’re both waiting on the other to make the first move. I already had Cass Hopetoun in mind to approach about a collaboration at some stage, I’m glad I pitched this one to her, she sounds amazing on it and I couldn’t be happier.

Gretta Ray – Duology 2: Human / Passion

Two songs joined in theme but creatively distinct; written from differing perspectives, released a pair.’

Following the March release of Bigger Than Me/ Readymade (Duology One), Gretta Ray today unveils the second double A-side single to be lifted from the debut album, Human and Passion (Duology Two), the second pair of songs in her Duology series: songs drawn from the same thematic heart to find their own unique places in her expanding catalogue of deeply felt, lushly produced pop.

“Human and Passion are both very much songs about an intimate relationship,” the 22-year old says. “It’s been so interesting to write about this concept, one that I’ve unpacked in every possible way since I was much younger, and to feel as though my feelings surrounding it have grown up with me over the past few years.”

The languid ecstasy of Human was captured in sensuous lyrics and sky bound choruses with co-writer Ned Philpot and co-writer/producer Robby De Sa in Sydney.

“That was the best day, when we wrote that song.” Gretta says. “I was on a really loved-up high, and Ned is the kind of co-writer who always meets me where I am in terms of whatever I’m feeling passionate about, and helps me find a way to accurately express that through the music.” After dosing up on Kasey Musgraves’ dreamy pop, Katy Perry’s Hummingbird Heartbeat and an early demo of Charley’s newly released single Hard For Me, “it was one of those songs that just fell into the space. We didn’t need to talk about it that much. We all just knew the feeling.”

“Making the music video for Human was so much fun, because it’s a collaboration with so many dear friends of mine. Ben and I wanted to find a way to incorporate evocative natural imagery into the video to amplify the lyric in Human “your body is a landscape”, and with the creative input from the incredible Patternity based over in the U.K, we were able to do that in a really special way.” Says Gretta of the video.

Gretta has also announced the release of her debut album, BEGIN TO LOOK AROUND which will be released on August 27th and available to pre-order now. A wonderous and empowering coming of age record, BEGIN TO LOOK AROUND chronicles the journey of a young artist navigating the winding lanes of womanhood, romance, heartbreak, travel and friendship

“This record is a documentation and celebration of the lessons I have learned about love, life and my unremitting passion for music as I’ve stepped into my early twenties. It is beautiful how much you change your mind throughout those formative years; things can always be seen from a different perspective, and when you’re immersed in incredible opportunities that see you travelling the world, falling in and out of love, and losing your sense of independence only for it to return stronger than ever before, it is only natural that your view of yourself and the world will be refined when you wake up, and begin to look around.” Says Gretta of her debut collection.

BEGIN TO LOOK AROUND boasts an A-list team of creatives working together to bring Gretta’s Duologies to life. Primarily produced by Robby De Sa (MAY-A, The Veronicas), Dylan Nash (Dean Lewis, Fergus James, Azure Ryder), Kyran Daniel (G-Flip) and mixed by Dan Grech-Marguerat (Halsey, Lana Del Ray, Troye Sivan) and Rich Cooper (Banks, The Temper Trap), the album will feature a series of Duologies: two songs joined in theme but creatively distinct; written from differing perspectives, released a pair.

Passion, co-written with Robby De Sa and Kyran Daniel (G Flip), needs less introduction for those who have followed Gretta’s new chapter. Released as a teaser track last December, its propulsive rhythm and smouldering lyric gave notice of a bold new phase of pop sophistication matched by a video of delicious, elegant decadence. Watch the video for Passion here.

At just 18, Gretta famously won Triple J Unearthed High and the prestigious Vanda & Young Songwriting Award for her high-rotation hit, Drive. Two EPs, Elsewhere (2016) and Here and Now (2018) have taken her from Falls and Splendour to her first shows in the UK and USA opening for artists such as Mumford & Sons, Gang of Youths, Lianne La Havas and James Bay. Now, at 22, her story truly begins.

Restless Minds – Why Do You Care?

We were asked to make a press release.

It’s pretty hard because what we do isn’t about us, but here’s a try.

Our debut EP in 2019, “Kingston”, was pretty successful on US College Radio. It received airplay in Australia on of the major radio station, Triple J.

We have been hard at work since, a little distracted by life, but finally are now releasing the first single “Why Do You Care?” from our debut album – which will come out around September 2021.

Our music is about the most amazing gear. The best analogue synths like the ARP Omni II – designed to replace the string orchestra (it didn’t work!) but is now used by many iconic groups such as The War on Drugs (but we had it first). Amazing fender guitars, Matchless Spitfire amplifiers, EvenTide pedals, and a beautiful recording environment at our Secret Garden Studios.

One of our guys, Tim, had a pretty big involvement in one of Australia’s Triple J Hottest 100 of the Decade Top 10 songs – so he at least is legit. So is the Mastering Engineer Will who has looked after all manner of cool bands including Turnover and others.

We are really proud of this single – and the rest of the album (yet to be named) which is coming out very soon.

We hope that you like it.
