Dali and the Paper Band are a Hobart based trio, who capture audiences with intriguing originals and improvisations.
After playing many show’s around Australia and abroad, they decided it was time to hibernate in the studio and craft some magic again. Many long days passed, and finally a new EP titled ‘Island’ was born.The EP contains an eclectic mix of Indie, Dance, and Hip-Hop sounds. It was recorded on Bruny Island, in Tasmania, where many of the songs were also written. The songs were finished and mastered by Damien Gerard Studios, in Sydney.
The first indie-dance style track, ‘Too Good To Be Good’, and the final song, ‘Move On’, which draws upon hip-hop, jazz and funk, both reflect upon the hedonism of youth.
‘Heartless’, which was recently released as a single, was inspired by the documentary ‘The Cove’, is about the slaughtering of dolphins in Japan.
The third and title track ‘Island’, was written by Dali about his childhood and the nomadic lifestyle his mother preferred, whilst ‘Insane Train’ is a brief story about a memorable train journey

Tony Romeril and Various Artists “Will You Remember Me” – A Tribute to Ted Mulry Songwriter.
Tony Romeril, the former lead singer of 70s hit Aussie band Autumn, is soon to release a new music project to honor the final work of Ted Mulry.
Born in Oldham, England, Ted Mulry first came to the attention of the music industry when he was signed to the legendary Albert Productions. He rose to fame as a solo singer/songwriter with his own composition, the pop ballad ‘Julia’, which made the Australian charts in 1970.
In 1972 he formed his own band, The Ted Mulry Gang, with guitarist Les Hall & drummer Herman Kovac. The band released their first album ‘Here We Are’ in 1974. Their first major hit, and the biggest of their career, was the 1975 single ‘Jump In My Car’ which spent 6 weeks at number one on the Australian singles charts.
As a close friend, Tony spent a lot of time with Ted during his final months. Ted was much under rated as a songwriter and Tony believed that some of his best material was released on his last solo album ‘This Time’.
Tony has re-recorded and re-interpreted 8 songs from the ‘This Time’ CD, as well as including of ‘Julia’ and ‘Will You Remember Me’ (the album title track). The recording sessions featured a mix of artists and singers from the 1970’s and 80’s such as Peter Cupples who knew and respected Ted and also some younger artists who loved his work and wanted to be part of this project.
The CD will be released on Autumn Records and distributed through MGM Distributors. 10% of the profits from the sale of this CD will be donated to Support Act.

“Creeper Vine” is the new record from singer-songwriter/guitarist Luke Escombe.
Drawing its musical inspiration from the vintage sounds of artists like
Chuck Berry, Freddie King, Elvis Presley and The Rolling Stones,
the 6-track EP features songs about modern urban life –
from advice on how to manage the rat race (Drink more coffee),
live with debt and survive the tensions of a long-term marriage (Axe in the house)
to tips on how to appreciate women over the age of 30
and cope with the loss of the female prime minister in your life (Julia).
Sharp, urgent and darkly funny, the album continues in the tradition established by Escombe’s 2012 studio album “Mantown”, which spent 9 straight months in the top ten of the Australian Blues and Roots radio play charts.
2014 saw Escombe release 2 critically acclaimed live albums on the same day –
“Luke Escombe and the Corporation: Live on the Coast” and “Chronic Symphonic”.
Writing about these releases in the Sydney Morning Herald reviewer John Shand wrote:
“Luke Escombe is funny and brave, a showman and an artist, a brilliantly engaging lyricist, expert tunesmith, fine guitarist and exceptional singer. Seldom is such sophistication wrapped in a coating of such overt fun. Buy both. Hear him”
Luke was nominated for a Green Room Award in 2012 for his one-man show “Chronic”, which took him to festivals around Australia as well as to the Edinburgh Fringe. He has performed 3 times at Parliament House in Canberra as well as at New Zealand’s National Museum in Wellington and spoken at conferences and health industry events across the country in his role as ambassador for Crohn’s and Colitis Australia.
He was awarded the title of “Sydney’s sexiest man voice” in 2011 in a radio competition on Mix 106.5FM and recently won the prize for Best Kid’s Show at the 2014 Sydney Fringe with his “roots musical” creation The Vegetable Plot.
“Creeper Vine” was recorded at Vienna People Studios in Sydney and features Escombe’s long-time collaborators Aaron Flower on guitar and Jamie Cameron on drums, as well as legendary rock-soul bassist Harry Brus (Renee Geyer, Kevin Borich, Billy Thorpe).
Producer Michael McGlynn (L-Fresh, Little May) adds piano, organ and percussion,
with backing vocals on two tracks by soul singer Carmen Smith.
The March 12th release of “Creeper Vine” will be accompanied by a 4-city East Coast tour.

Album Released : 13th February 2015
Irish indie-folk four-piece Raglanshave undergone a meteoric rise in popularity since their inception, going from a crowd pleasing, gig-opening favourite at Dublin’s Whelan’s hotspot to garnering widespread recognition across the UK. Now they’re coming to Australia to perform at Soundwave and release their debut album.
Saturday 21 February – Bonython Park, Adelaide
Sunday 22 February – Melbourne Showgrounds, Melbourne
Saturday 28 February – Olympic Park, Sydney
Sunday 1 March – Brisbane Showgrounds, Brisbane
This Dublin quartet are slowly but surely putting themselves on the radar. Raglans recently toured the UK supporting The Strypes, and they’ve achieved some mainstream radio airplay. Their debut album is jam-packed with feel-good tracks that will ensure you don’t forget them in a hurry. Digging Holes kicks the album off superbly, showcasing the band’s talent and likeability. This is exactly how we want to be lured into an album: with plenty of hooks and a bouncy, summery vibe. Thankfully, the fun doesn’t stop there; the guys flaunt their ability to captivate in (Lady) Roll Back the Years and Before Tonight, head-bopping and foot-tapping anthems that will instantly lift your mood and have you daydreaming of summer.
‘Raglans’, as an LP,encompasses the grouped vocals of The Lumineers, the multi-instrumentalist efforts of Of Monsters And Men, whilst highlighting the substantial post-punk camaraderie circa The Libertines.
Fiona Bevan is an English singer/songwriter who is currently on tour with Busby
Marou around Australia. She is already established as a songwriter, she co-wrote Little Things
with Ed Sheeran, a 2012 No.1 single for One Direction plus has a song
on the 5 Seconds Of Summer album. While in Australia she has been writing with many local artists including Don Walker (Cold Chisel).
Fiona’s debut album
‘Talk To Strangers’
was released earlier this year, two singles
‘Rebel Without a Cause’ and ‘Pirates & Diamonds’, the later stunning video now getting some play. Click here to view.
We decided to rush release ‘They Sang Silent Night’ after hearing this beautiful and relevant song. Simply put, it tells us of the Christmas ceasefire in World War 1 and how a little boy just wants his father back, how we all need to be with family instead of fighting wars.
Fiona is nearly at the end of her first Australian tour and we’ll be seeing her back soon with a new album, including many songs she wrote here.
