"This Here Cowboy" is a stunning new collaboration between award winning country producer Rod McCormack and sensational country singer songwriter Roo Arcus. Over the years Australian country music has produced some fine voices but few that have embraced the path of the new traditionalists like our own Roo Arcus. Stumbling onto "This Here Cowboy" you could be forgiven thinking that you were witnessing a young George Strait, or a fledgling Alan Jackson.
Married singer/songwriters Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson have released their second collaboration. The new album Wreck And Ruin is the couple’s highly anticipated follow up to their 2008 platinum release Rattlin’ Bones. After five years Chambers and Nicholson decided it was time to “Tempt fate,” and said, “We have both made solo albums in between but in the back of our minds we always knew we would end up making music together again. “The writing process fell into place easier than we had planned so we grabbed some musician friends and recorded us all jamming the songs on a farm for a week. Wreck And Ruin was born and gave us a chance to revisit the sounds of music that we love to make together where it can be 'traditional' but not 'conventional'."
