Vera Blue Releases Lady Powers | Power Ladies Remix EP

Today Vera Blue releases her Power Ladies Remix EP – flexing her ‘Lady Powers’ with a bunch of talented women on a new EP.

The first track features Atlanta’s 19-year-old hip-hop up-and-comer Kodie Shane. It’s lifted from a new EP that sees Vera tapping local and international producers to remix the track.  Australia’s own Alice Ivy delivers a dreamy makeover, along with fresh takes from Cali beat-maker TOKiMONSTA, deep house disco from Maria Marcus, and an early hours dubstep mix from Maya Jane Coles alongside the Kodie Shane-assisted version of ‘Lady Powers’.

 

Power Ladies Remix EP is available now on Apple, Spotify and vinyl.

Dan Sultan releases collaborative EP Killer Under A Red Moon

Dan Sultan releases collaborative EP Killer Under A Red Moon

Today Dan Sultan releases his new, collaborative EP Killer Under A Blood Moon. The special, 6-track EP is available today and features tracks from Sultan’s ARIA-Award nominated album Killer, reinterpreted by Dan and some of the brightest and most important names in Australian music right now – A.B. Original, Camp Cope, Gang of Youths’ Dave Le’aupepe and Meg Mac.

 

Recorded live at Red Moon Studios with close friend and producer Jan Skubiszewski, the EP is a testament to the respect Sultan garners in his peers, and adds to his already glowing catalogue of music. Leading up to its release, Sultan has shared a new song weekly with fans, including ‘Drover (Feat. Dave Le’aupepe)’, ‘Reaction (Feat. Meg Mac)’ and ‘Killer (Feat. Camp Cope)’.  Each release has been accompanied by a live video from the studio.

The EP rounds off with two unheard glam-bent bonus tracks, ‘Pitchfork’ and ‘Coming Back’, which were written around the time the songs from Killer came to be.

 

Killer debuted at #5 on the ARIA Albums Chart and received three nominations at last year’s ARIA Awards. It featured on numerous Best Albums of 2017 lists, with lead single ‘Hold It Together’ nominated for APRA’s Song of the Year. It has also garnered Sultan a nomination for Best Independent Blues and Roots Album at this year’s AIR Awards, which will take place on July 26.

 

Sultan is currently in the midst of an extensive solo tour for Killer, which sees him stripping things back to basics – just himself, his piano and guitar – for an incredible 44 date theatre run nationwide. Limited tickets remain for select shows.

One of Australia’s most promising talents, Vera Blue is pleased to announce her signing to Deep Well / Capitol Records in the U.S and Paradigm Agency in New York effective immediately.  She will headline a US tour in March, which includes showcase performances at SXSW.

Vera Blue has also received a grant from the Australia Council of the Arts to help fund her debut North American shows and appearance at SXSW.

Australian recording artist Vera Blue found her feet first as a singer and then as an acoustic guitarist. She found her sound mixing the music she’s long loved with lush and sultry electronica as heard on her EP ‘Fingertips’.  The lead track Hold’ has reached over 14 million streams and peaked at #1 on the Spotify AU Viral Chart, Top 5 UK/US and Global Spotify Viral Charts. The ‘Fingertips’ EP peaked at #3 on the iTunes Album Chart, garnered 3 x Top 100 ARIA Chart Singles and has been streamed over 21 million times world-wide to date and received glowing reviews.

“From the first time I heard her sing I was convinced that we had to be involved.  She is a rare talent that will electrify anyone that hears her music.  We couldn’t be more excited to work alongside our friends at Universal Australia and welcome her to the Deep Well / Capitol Records family,” says Adam Anders, President/CEO from Deep Well.

We’re very excited to have partnered with Universal Music Australia to make Vera Blue part of the Capitol Records family. Her voice effortlessly carries the melodies from song to song and really draws in the listener with her unique blend of electronic and folk elements.  She has already solidified herself as a rising star in Australia and we can’t wait to continue to build upon her momentum here in the US,” says Mike Flynn, EVP A & R from Capitol Records.

Paradigm is one of the top music agencies in the world with clients including AerosmithBlack Eyed PeasColdplay and Ed Sheeran – just to name a few. Matt Galle, Senior Agent from Paradigm says, “We are thrilled to have Vera Blue join the Paradigm family and are looking forward to her debut North America dates.”

Currently in the studio recording her much anticipated debut album to be released this year, 2017 is shaping up to be massive. She has just come off the Australian Summer Festival season after two sold out national tours last year. The hit single ‘Papercuts’, which she features on and performed at the 2016 ARIA Awards with Illy, is now certified 3x Platinum peaking at #2 on the charts.

DAN SULTAN ANNOUNCES DIRTY GROUND EP + TOUR

Feb 9, 2015

DAN SULTAN ANNOUNCES DIRTY GROUND EP + TOUR

With the arrival of Dan Sultan’s new solo EP, Dirty Ground, the Melbourne muso today backs up the news with an announcement of solo tour dates for February and March.

 

Dirty Ground bursts with sparse, stunning songs and was recorded in just one day with Jan Skubizewski of Way of the Eagle. It features co-writes with legendary local musicians Paul Kelly, for the title track ‘Dirty Ground’ and ‘On The Leffy’; and Paul Dempsey, for ‘Mountaintop’. Also included on the EP is the poignant ‘Man on TV’, which Sultan wrote whilst in Nashville.

 

The majority of tracks have been part of Dan’s repertoire for some time – amongst his original demos for Blackbird – but the musician felt they were better suited to a solo release due to their stripped back, raw and emotive nature. They show another side to the ARIA-winning rockstar we’ve come to know through Blackbird.

 

You can take a look at Dan’s striking live rendition of ‘Mountaintop’ here:

MOUNTAINTOP – LIVE FROM THE WAY OF THE EAGLE STUDIOS

The live version of the EP track was also recorded at the Way of the Eagle Studios.

 

The Dirty Ground tour will take Dan back on the road in intimate solo mode. The shows will allow him to fully showcase his unique talent as not only a singer and songwriter, but a teller of stories – perfect for fans who would prefer to see him in a close setting, and experience the album and EP in their rawest and most emotive forms.

 

“I enjoy playing with my band and I also enjoy playing solo. I’m looking forward to getting back on the road with more space on the tour bus.” – Dan Sultan

 

Opening up the solo shows will be popular folk rockers, Pierce Brothers.  The last year has been one wild ride for these local musicians, with their latest EP The Night Tree coming in at #21 on the ARIA Charts. The boys recently sold out five headlining shows in their hometown of Melbourne – an astonishing feat without major radio play or label support.

 

This tour is proudly presented in association with the GO! Foundation, which Dan serves as an ambassador. The GO! Foundation aims to assist Indigenous Australian youths achieve their goals through education scholarships. A portion of the tour profits will be donated directly to the foundation which was co-founded by Australian of the Year Adam Goodes and Michael O’Loughlin.

 

In the lead up to the tour, Dan will performed on a bunch of the hottest Summer festivals including the Queenscliff Music Festival, the Falls Festivals in Lorne, Byron Bay and Marion Bay, and the Riverboats Festival in Echuca.
Dan was nominated for five ARIA Awards in 2014, winning the coveted award for Best Rock Album.
